Science: dull or hard to understand? Not if you read this book! The creators of Philosophy - A Discovery in Comics take on a new challenge, and explain the different scientific disciplines in clear, colourful chapters.

Who exclaimed “Eureka” and why?

Why did Galileo get into a fight with the Church?

What happens when you have your DNA tested?

All these questions and more are answered in a chronological journey from ancient times to modern quantum theory, with creators Margreet and Yiri as your witty guides.

A great comic book for anyone who wants to learn in a fun way the bigger framework of science, or brush up on what they learned in school.

“I can't recommend this one highly enough, both for younger readers and adults who enjoy overviews of expansive subjects.” –
Panel Patter

“If you find a better, more understandable explanation of the space-time continuum and how the idea is relative to Einstein I would be surprised. You can watch a hundred TV specials on waves and particle and read a hundred books, but nothing will help the layperson understand the complexity of quantum theory better than the drawings [de Heer] has created.” – The New York Review of Books

REVIEWS

Booklist

•Literary review magazine

“A great many topics are treated, thanks to the economy of de Heer’s visual presentation, and they’re all handled very well, thanks to the energy of her drawing style and the vividness of Kohl’s colouring. If anything, Science is an even more successful – more attractive and engaging – work than Philosophy.”

It’s fun, it’s playful, it’s surprisingly comprehensive in its breadth … as a primer, or a fun refresher course, Science: A Discovery In Comics does a fine job.” – Richard Bruton
