More comic books about more things can mean greater accuracy. Where Nelson Mandela grew up, it was not built up, and it was very beautiful. As "Nelson Mandela: The Authorized Comic Book" makes clear.

A book written only and not drawn might have said that he grew up in a area that was, like much of South Africa, gorgeous, but it only would have said it once. In the authorized comic book, his early life events happen, and there's beauty and beauty again always in the background til it's time go to cities that are less beautiful.
