Science in Graphic Novels

The library has several science-related graphic novels available for checkout:

The Stuff of Life: A Graphic Guide to Genetics and DNA written by Mark Schultz, art by Zander Cannon and Kevin Cannon -

The Stuff of Life uses a fictional story about aliens trying to overcome a serious and deadly genetic disorder to convey real-life facts about genetics and DNA.

Freud for Beginners by Richard Appignanesi & Oscar Zarate -

Freud for Beginners is not quite a graphic novel - "collection of comic-style pages" might be more accurate. It discusses Freud's life, beliefs, and theories.

Little Robot by Ben Hatke -

This last selection is very much fiction - a story about a young girl who finds and accidentally activates a robot. However, the main character does create a few more robots of her own. Fans of the Maker Spot's Lego Mind Storm, LittleBits, and other kits may see a little of themselves in her.
