If there's one way to get the kids interested in our hobby, it must be by presenting them a story in a comic book. This one, by Martin Grünewald and illustrated by Willy Harold Williamson has just been released. It tells the story of the troubles Carl Benz faced while building his first automobile. And of course there's the story of his wife Bertha Benz
, whose first long-distance drive is legendary. As far as we can see all details of the Benz Patent Motor Car
are amazingly accurate drawn and both Carl and Bertha are very recognizable. Do you have to be a kid to appreciate a book like this? We think not!
The comic book, "Carl Benz - A life dedicated to the car" is available in four languages: German, English, French and Chinese. The comic will be sold through booksellers, but may also be ordered online from the MB Classic Store
