The Manga Guide to Molecular Biology

In Japan there are textbooks that are presented in Manga form, as seen on the left.

In America, apparently, we have the same thing from a company called No Startch. However, the main difference between Japan's manga textbooks and America's is clearly the art, where the American art style is that same generic "manga" art that usually only graces the fan made T-Shirts you buy (or more likely don't buy) at conventions.

Regardless, it poses the question. If you could read about advanced physics or calculus in manga form, would you be more inclined to study it?
