For me, I enjoy things more when I learn them from comics.  Like there is an older manga series called Project X – Challengers and they tell stories like how 7-11 Stores got started in Japan or the invention of Cup Noodle brand of ramen.

Robotech Issue 8

Writers:  Brian Wood   Simon Furman  Artist:  Marco Turini

Legendary Transformers scribe Simon Furman joins writer Brian Wood (DMZ) to chronicle the ongoing adventures of the SDF-!!

Concluding the second arc of the best-selling fan favorite series!

Note – Brian Wood has had issues in the past with sexually harassing an artist – http://womenwriteaboutcomics.com/2013/11/15/tess-fowler-brian-wood-and-harassment-in-the-comic-industry/
