It just occurred to me that the comic would be the ideal medium to teach philosophy: it's approachable, engaging, and visual. It would make learning philosophy, with great incredulity I write this, fun.

Philosophers are a dull bunch, they need this makeover more than anything else. Beyond that, I've learned, to be a philosopher, you must be incapable of writing intelligibly. The illustrations would help remedy this.

It would be like 'The Big Question' internet graphic novel, if you remember that from a while ago (whose domain has now been acquired by cybersquatters), minus the Christian agenda.

Now if I can fucking actually finish Kant, I can make them damn comics...
