Over the holidays, I received the book "Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need" as a gift. It's a career advice book with a catch; it's told in a comic book format rather than traditional prose. The book was a quick read and had all the good aspects of a comic book (engrossing, interesting characters, creative narration and layout) and a well-written advice book (a few simple easy-to-remember lessons, informal but not condescending tone, reinforcing lessons with examples.)
Above all, I had fun reading it and it made me reflect on my career path and plan. I highly recommend it. Kudos to author Daniel H. Pink and artist Rob Ten Pas for putting together a unique book.
Google followed a similar "comics as documentation" with their introduction to the Chrome browser, and Why the Lucky Stiff created his introduction to Ruby programming with "Why's (Poignant) Guide to Ruby)". Can anyone recommend other interesting and unusual uses of comics as documentation?
