The Obama Story: The Boy with the Biggest Dream! (Korean: 오바마 이야기: 세상에서 가장 큰 꿈을 꾼 아이) is a manhwa that is a biography of Barack Obama. T. S. Lee wrote and illustrated the book. Janet Jaywan Shin created the English translation from the original Korean. In the U.S., J.E Chae and Brittany Pogue-Mohammed edited that country's version.[1]
