"TO TEACH" Being adapted into Graphic Format

Italics swiped from The Beat (link embedded in post's title):

Before he was a polarizing figure in the 2008 US presidential election. Professor William Ayers was also a respected educational figure with many books to his credit. Now he’s bringing his thoughts on the teaching life to comics with a graphic novel adaptation of TO TEACH: THE JOURNEY, IN COMICS, illustrated by Xeric Grant winner Ryan Alexander-Tanner.

Next on my wish-list of comic book adaptations of teacherly texts:
* Savage Inequalities
* Ghetto Schooling

* Basics of Qualitative Research

Wow, this is most interesting. Mr. Ayres planned to speak to seniors at the local high school last winter, and there was such a hullabaloo (sp?) that it was canceled as was an appearance at the local Indie bookstore. The latter, for safety reasons.
The bookstore owner did organize a community forum on the First Amendment -- over 100 folks, speeches, discussion. The owner received one of the NCTE Intellectual Freedom Awards last November. I like your additions.
