by Leland Myrick and Jim Ottaviani
In this substantial graphic novel biography, the larger-than-life exploits of Nobel-winning quantum physicist, adventurer, musician, world-class raconteur, and great minds of the twentieth century: Richard Feynman, are explored. Written by nonfiction comics mainstay Jim Ottaviani and brilliantly illustrated by author Leland Myrick, Feynman 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. Ottaviani tackles the bad with the good, leaving the reader delighted by Feynman’s exuberant life and staggered at the loss humanity suffered with his death. Anyone who ever wanted to know more about Richard P. Feynman, quantum electrodynamics, the fine art of the bongo drums, the outrageously obscure nation of Tuva, or the development and popularization of the field of physics in the United States need look no further than this rich and joyful work.
