Why Obama, by Benn Ray

Why Obama is a series of guest essays by musicians and authors, where they share their support for Democratic United States presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama and offer arguments why he needs to be elected president of the United States.

Benn Ray is the author of the recently published comic, Straight Talk Express: Some Quick Talk, which collects quotes by John McCain collected over his political career. He is also the owner of Baltimore's Atomic Books. He also published the Mobtown Shank blog.

Full disclosure: Atomic Books is the sponsor of this blog's 52 Books, 52 Weeks reading series, and is my favorite independent bookstore on the planet.

In his own words, here is Benn Ray's Why Obama essay (in comic form):
