Want to relive Donald Trump’s road to Election Day? There’s a comic book for that.

“One by one, his opponents fell to the will of the voters who see Mister Trump as the savior of a country where the American dream seems broken and unattainable. Does Donald Trump have the clout to become the next president of the United States?” the book’s tout from Storm Entertainment reads.

A 25-page sequential art account of the business mogul’s presidential bid was released Wednesday, entitled “Donald Trump: The Road to the White House,” written by Michael Frizell with art by Nathan Webb.

The creators plan to make comic books on vice presidential candidates Tim Kaine and Mike Pence, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and President Alexander Hamilton.

Storm Entertainment has made three comics on Hillary Clinton over the last eight years and she even signed one of them. The latest was released in March about her run for the White House.  

How did the kids decide?

Children have elected Hillary Clinton president by a 57 percent to 32 percent margin over Trump.

Newsela conducted an election project that saw hundreds of thousands of kids across the country casting their votes for president from Oct. 17 through Wednesday. Newsela’s teaching tool has been used by teachers in 75 percent of schools in the U.S. to help kids learn to read via journalism.

The results show Clinton taking most swing states but Trump maintaining his hold in Utah and winning Ohio and Iowa. And Clinton won a few typically GOP states: Texas, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Louisiana and South Carolina. Check out the full electoral breakdown.
