By: Jim Ottaviani Keeps Blinding Me with Science - from The Zero Boss by Jay Andrew Allenhttp://comicsworthreading.com/2006/03/15/dignifying-science/comment-page-1/#comment-36771 Tue, 21 Nov 2006 22:40:15 +0000 http://www.comicsworthreading.com/2006/03/15/dignifying-science/#comment-36771 […] If you’re new to comics, I would recommend starting with either of the first two books, to ease yourself in gently.

Johanna Draper Carlson has some informative reviews of these books (as well as many others — her site is always worth reading). From my own experience, Ottaviani’s books are great for people who read nonfiction, enjoy Cartoon History of the Universe, are themselves scientists, or simply want a good, meaty read. […]

I was thus surprised, when they mentioned the state of comics as a whole, including the diversity of what’s being published, that they didn’t mention the true science comics like those done by Jay Hosler or Jim Ottaviani. Books like Clan Apis or Dignifying Science are both entertaining and factual. […]
