Product description

Review

"This smart and wondrously exploratory scientific biography reveals as much about black holes as the man who explored them." ―Publishers Weekly

"Readers new to Hawking's ideas, and particularly his enigmatic musings about the nature of time, will find this book, cartoonish as it is, to be full of insight; the science is sharp and to the point...Every world-changing scientist deserves such an entertaining but factually rich treatment." ―Kirkus Reviews

"A well-rounded study of physics and one of its brightest stars." ―Booklist

"Packed with scientific theory, this graphic biography of a scientific luminary will appeal to budding physics and cosmology enthusiasts." ―School Library Journal

"Having tackled towering intellects such as Dian Fossey, Alan Turing and Richard Feynman, the great Jim Ottaviani turns to the late Stephen Hawking. The intellectually thrilling result does not disappoint." ―the Star Tribune

About the Author

Jim Ottaviani has written fifteen (and counting) graphic novels about scientists. His most recent books include Naturalist (with E.O. Wilson), Astronauts: Women on the Final Frontier, Hawking, The Imitation Game, a biography of Alan Turing, Primates, about Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas; and Feynman, about the Nobel-prize winning physicist, artist, and raconteur. His books are New York Times bestsellers, have been translated into a dozen languages, and have received praise from publications ranging from Nature and Physics World to Entertainment Weekly and Variety.

Jim lives in Michigan and comes to comics via careers in nuclear engineering and librarianship.



Leland Myrick 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.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Jim Ottaviani has worked in news agencies and golf courses in the Chicago area, nuclear reactors in the U.S. and Japan, and libraries in Michigan. He still works as a librarian by day, but stays up late writing comics about scientists. When he's not doing these things, he's spraining his ankles and flattening his feet by running on trails. Or he's reading. He reads a lot. Elsewhere on the web you can find him at www.gt-labs.com .
