Recounts the life of the renowned physicist, from working on the Manhattan Project, to his Nobel Prize in quantum electrodynamics, to his work as a key investigator in the space shuttle Challenger explosion.
JIM OTTAVIANI (Feynman, Primates) is the world's preeminent writer of comics and graphic novels about science. Notable works include a biography of Niels Bohr and the fast-paced tale of the desperate lives of early paleontologists and T-Minus: The Race to the Moon, from Aladdin books. He has worked as a nuclear engineer and is currently employed as a reference librarian in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
LELAND MYRICK (Feynman, Missouri Boy) is the Ignatz Award- and Harvey Award-nominated author and illustrator of The Sweet Collection and Bright Elegy. His writing and illustrations have appeared in publications as diverse as Dark Horse Comics, GQ Japan and Vogue Russia. He grew up in Missouri, a place that has inspired much of his poetry and art, and he now lives in Pasadena, California, with his wife and daughter.
Presents the larger-than-life exploits of Nobel-winning quantum physicist, adventurer, musician, and world-class raconteur, and one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century: Richard Feynman. This title tells the story of the great man's life from his childhood in Long Island to his work on the Manhattan Project and the Challenger disaster.
Jim Ottaviani and Leland Purvis show Turing to be an eccentric, persecuted genius and a groundbreaking theoretician whose seminal work still plays a role in the science and telecommunication systems that fuel our modern world.
Jim Ottaviani returns with an action-packed account of the three greatest primatologists of the last century. Tackling Goodall, Fossey, and Galdikas in turn, and covering the highlights of their respective careers, Primates is an informative look at primatology and at the lives of three of the most remarkable women scientists of the 20th century.
Einstein looked up to him, the Nazis tried to abduct him, his institute inCopenhagen hosted just about every Nobel prize winner in physics you can name(and then some), and Winston Churchill considered him a dangerous, dangerousman. His friends and enemies agreed: Niels Bohr was more than the father ofquantum mechanics ? he was one of the most important figures of the 20thcentury. The Tony...
