A Shortcut to the Common Book

Are you an incoming freshman trying to soak up the last bits of summer before officially becoming a Bruin? Is your copy of the Common Book collecting dust, completely untouched ever since you haphazardly shoved it into your orientation bag? Do you like poorly drawn stick figures and mediocre voice-overs? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I’ve got you covered.

This year’s Common Book is “I Never Had It Made” by Jackie Robinson, his autobiography documenting his full and historic life. If you don’t have time (or are just too lazy) to read it, check out this video of my original web series called “Bastardize English,” where I quickly draw and explain the plots to stories that you’ve neglected to read. It’s kind of like SparkNotes, only visual and slightly more entertaining. Just slightly.

What did you think of “I Never Had It Made?” Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @dbmojo.
