Well, I could easily have written a book on Smith, one on Malthus, one on Ricardo, and so on (in fact, it would have been easier than trying to cut everything down into one book), but the whole point for me was to provide an accessible introduction for people who find the subject intimidating. A series would be intimidating, even if it was in comics form.

What are some good books (preferably not massive), on historical advances in economics from those like Smith?
