NY Times Comic About Ben Franklin Reminds Us That He Was Totally Amazing

Here at ComicsAlliance, there are few things we love more than comics about awesome historical figures, so it was a particular treat to see the recent Ben Franklin comic by Maira Kalman, who has an ongoing illustrated column in The New York Times about American democracy.

This installment details the many, many, many reasons Franklin was a totally amazing guy who basically wanted to make the world better in both important, everyday ways like building hospitals and libraries and enormous ones, like helping create America. And the lightning rod. And the odometer. And like a billion other things. Check him out.
