In South Korea, there's an educational comic industry that publishes this kind of thing for a vairety of topics. As far as I know none of them have been translated save for one single book by an author/artist, can't remember his name, who focuses on geography. The book he did about Korea has been translated for consumption by foreign audiences.

To me, if a subject is too big for one book to do it justice, it seems better to make it a series. A good deal of Adam Smith's stuff was descriptions of interactions between people and how that affects society at large; that seems ripe for an in-depth graphic approach.
