Free Comic Book Day: Why write science comics?

Because science is awesome and comic books are awesome so how can you not put them both together?


#3

And in this case, the author is obviously awesome too. This book is going on a birthday present list.

One of my childish amusements is reading popular books about quantum mechanics/relativity and waiting for the point where the author loses it. They all do, sooner or later. One big problem is that the diagrams are almost invariably awful, of the “we know not many people are actually going to read this book so we won’t try too hard” variety. Can anybody recommend a comic book about quantum mechanics that would mean something to a very bright none year old (not me, my grandson.)?

Not a comic book but Feynman’s 6 Easy Pieces is very accessable.
