Interview: Michael Crowley, author of 08: A Graphic Diary of the Campaign Trail

Jan 27, 2009

It was a year that none of us will soon forget. It began with a mindblowing victory for Barack Obama in the Iowa caucuses and unfolded into a tight, unbelievably fierce competition with former First Lady Hillary Clinton. And when the dust settled…Obama was the winner of the Democratic nomination. And that’s when things got really strange, as the election cycle truly began and Obama matched off against Republican nominee John McCain. We all know what happened next. Is it too soon to relive it? Not at all, if you’re looking at the graphic account of the entire election told in 08, new from journalist Michael Crowley and artist Dan Goldman (see an excerpt of it here).
