Confucius Speaks

Confucius Speaks by Tsai Chih Chung

A graphic format in which are recounted Confucius's life and selections from the Analects.

The life is well peppered with accounts of Confucius's sayings in context.  Also, I would not bet too much on its historical accuracy.

The sayings and anecdotes are indeed only selections.  The illustrations are not quite so useful there in elucidating the text -- or, indeed, as they are in his The Tao Speaks, but still, an intriguing work.
