Praise for the Science Comics series:
"This series—written by a handful of authors—seems determined to offer a useful introduction to anything a curious grade-school student might wonder about. The insight behind these books is a powerful one. So much information about the world around us is actually better conveyed visually, through charts, illustrations, and sequential panels, than purely using words." —New York Times
"Like having a Time Life Science Library in comic books. Which is awesome!" —Popular Science
Praise for Science Comics: The Brain:
"Graudins’ cartoons help break down the academic concepts without being patronizing and, happily, while making learning fun. A particularly well-executed and thought-provoking installment in this reliable nonfiction series." —Booklist, starred review
