The Cartoon History of the Modern World Part 1: From Columbus to the U.S. Constitution

Editura: Collins

Anul aparitiei: 2007

The Cartoon History of the Modern World is a wickedly funny take on modern history. It is essentially a complete and up-to-date course in college level Modern World History, but presented as a graphic novel. In an engaging and humorous graphic style, Larry Gonick covers the history, personalities and big topics that have shaped our universe over the past five centuries, including the Industrial Revolution, the American Revolution, the Russian Revolution, the evolution of political, social, economic, and scientific thought, Communism, Fascism, Nazism, the Cold War, Globalization--and much more. Volume I of the Cartoon History of the Modern World picks up from Gonick's award winning Cartoon History of the Universe Series. That series began with the Big Bang and ended with Christopher Columbus sailing for the New World. This book starts off with peoples that Columbus "discovered" and ends with the U.S. Revolution.

The Cartoon History of the Modern World, Part II: From the Bastille to Baghdad

Editura: Harper Paperbacks

Anul aparitiei: 2009

"From the Bastille to Baghdad," The Cartoon History of the World Part 2 is the conclusion (for the moment) of Larry Gonick's award-winning and bestselling annals of humankind presented in graphic novel form. Picking up after the American Revolution, where Part 1 left off, Part 2 opens with the Enlightenment and rolls across Napoleon, the fall of the Ottoman Empire, World War I and II, and all the way to our recent imbroglios in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Cartoon History of the Modern World Part 2 is a monumental, one might say "historic" achievement, at once edifying, irreverent, and wildly entertaining. Terry Jones of Monty Python said of the first volume of this series, " Obviously one of the great books of all time." And modern civilization's most recent act is no less enthralling.

The Discworld Graphic Novels: The Colour of Magic and the Light Fantastic

Editura: Harper Paperbacks

Anul aparitiei: 2009

In a distant and second-hand set of dimensions, in an astral plane that was never meant to fly . . . Imagine a flat world sitting on the backs of four elephants who hurtle through space balanced on a giant turtle. The Discworld is a place (and a time) strikingly parallel to our own--but also very different. But also very similar. To commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the birth of the Discworld, the first two volumes of the remarkable Terry Pratchett's equally remarkable--and phenomenally successful--series were made available together, right here, in graphic novel form. These beautifully illustrated renditions of "The Colour of Magic" and "The Light Fantastic" show and tell the bizarre misadventures of the spectacularly inept wizard Rincewind and Twoflower, Discworld's very first--and possibly, portentously its very last--tourist. Not to mention the Luggage, which has a mind of its own. And teeth.

Editura: Columbia University Press

Anul aparitiei: 2011

With humor, depth, and philosophical and historical insight, DNA reaches out to a wide range of readers with its graphic portrayal of a complicated science. Suitable for use in and out of the classroom, this volume covers DNA's many marvels, from its original discovery in 1869 to early-twentieth-century debates on the mechanisms of inheritance and the deeper nature of life's evolution and variety. Even readers who lack a background in science and philosophy will learn a tremendous amount from this engaging narrative. The book elucidates DNA's relationship to health and the cause and cure of disease. It also covers the creation of new life forms, nanomachines, and perspectives on crime detection, and considers the philosophical sources of classical Darwinian theory and recent, radical changes in the understanding of evolution itself. Already these developments have profoundly affected our notions about living things. Borin Van Loon's humorous illustrations recount the contributions of Gregor Mendel, Frederick Griffith, James Watson, and Francis Crick, among other biologists, scientists, and researchers, and vividly depict the modern controversies surrounding the Human Genome Project ...

Then, after nearly an hour, when he s long since given up hope, Natalie appears breathless, apologizing profusely that she went to the wrong place. She takes a seat, to Marshall s utter amazement.

From the astonishing imagination of Dash Shaw, visionary author of "Bottomless Belly Button," comes a darkly fantastical graphic novel about a small town, a lowlife botanist, and a mysterious plant with strange powers. It s 2060, and a devastating civil war has left the country in shambles. Professor Paulie Panther botanist, writer, and hopeless romantic arrives in the experimental forest town of Boney Borough to research a strange plant growing behind the high school. As he conducts his research, he befriends some of the local residents: Miss Jem, the alluring science teacher; Billy Borg, Boney Borough s star athlete; and Pearl Peach, the rebellious schoolgirl. Paulie soon discovers that the plant, when smoked, imparts telepathic powers. But when he shares this remarkable drug with his new friends, he finds that they re not interested in mind-expansion. In fact, it appears that Paulie s brash individualism might not be at all welcome in a town that prefers conformity to eccentricity. Nominated for a 2009 Eisner Award and with a bold, innovative design, "BodyWorld "is a mind-blowing blend of science-fiction, classic high school drama, and futuristic what-if.
