The new webcomic Law And Sausages is a collaboration between political science professor Greg Weiner, his brother Zach Weinersmith of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, and artist Dennis Silver. It is a lesson in civics in webcomic form, in which Dr. Weiner explains how government works, while using Zach as a (usually bad) example. The title comes from the old adage, “If you love the law and you love sausage, you don’t want to see either one being made.” The small excerpts here are from the first lesson, about the separation of powers.
The goal of Laws and Sausages is to be a comic about politics, without the politics. We aim to give American readers of all political persuasions the intellectual tools with which to understand their government’s history, philosophy, and mechanics. We aim to be the civics education you either never got or chose to ignore.
