Marvel and DC comics creator Barbara Slate makes the Mueller Report fast-paced, easy-to-read, and entertaining. She selects crucial text from the two volume, 448 page report that was issued by the Department of Justice in April, 2019 and weaves a riveting visual story of secret agents, hackers and political manipulators, deceit and comical cover-ups. It stays true to the facts in the Report on the Investigation into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election (Volume 1) and the Investigation into Obstruction of Justice (Volume 2). The book contains both volumes and is 108 pages.
In one hour of reading The Mueller Report Graphic Novel you will understand the details of how Russians manipulated the 2016 election, how the Trump campaign was connected to the Russians, and how the President tried to obstruct the investigation. Attorney General Barr made false claims that the report "exonerated" the President. Mueller said "If we had had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so."
Congress is now engaged in impeachment proceedings and many of the characters you will read about are appearing on the news every day, sometimes in handcuffs. It's a lot easier to follow what is going on when you know the back story.

What we've done so far
Barbara saw the need for an understandable version of this important story the day the redacted report was released, April 18, 2019. She posted the first page of her Mueller Report Graphic Novel on Facebook and Twitter three days later. The response was so fast, large, and enthusiastic, she created and posted a page a day until it was done.
Richard Minsky, who had published her textbook You Can Do a Graphic Novel, agreed that it was needed and that Barbara was the right artist to do it. We created a Facebook Page , which now has more than 6,000 followers. To get it out quickly we issued it in two comic book format volumes, as Barbara completed them. Volume 1 came out in July. and Volume 2 in September.
Here's what John Seven wrote in Comics Beat:
"A surprisingly good-natured but thorough adaptation of what may turn out to be the most astounding story of American corruption in plain sight ever told."
"Slate has provided something that is half-public service, half-wild ride, both crucial and rollicking."
Barbara is doing the book as a 7"x10" combined edition, including an additional six pages with the Cast of Characters. It will be issued in both hardcover and paperback. The contents are in black and white, 108 pages.

Risks and challenges
The risks to completing the project if we get the funding are minimal. We have both produced many books and have more than 80 years of combined experience in the field. We shipped more than a thousand packages to fulfill the orders for the comic-format 2-volume edition.
If the response to this project is way bigger than we expect, we will have to hire an assistant to help with the shipping.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
