Do you need to learn about economics? Of course you do. Do you like comic books?  Of course you do.  So do yourself a favor and go get this book Economix.  Interestingly, the true genius of Economix isn't so much the idea of having comics as it is the idea of teaching economics through the history of economics. Teaching the theory through its history allows the author to tie abstract concepts to people's ordinary lives and to real events like wars, famines, political intrigues, and political protests.  Another great thing about this book is that it is opinionated.  It tells the story, but makes no attempt to hide the fact that some things are good and others bad, and some things are important while others are trivial.  So yeah: check it out.
