Overview

An accessible graphic introduction to evolution for the most science-phobic reader

Illustrated by the brilliant duo Kevin Cannon and Zander Cannon, this volume is written by the noted comic author and professor of biology Jay Hosler. "Evolution "features the same characters introduced in the highly regarded "The Stuff of Life: A Graphic Guide to Genetics and DNA," now here to explain the fundamentals of the evolution of life on earth. On the heels of explaining to his planetary leader the intricacies of human genetics in "The Stuff of Life," the intrepid alien scientist Bloort-183 is charged in this sequel with covering the wider story of evolution. Using the same storytelling conceit that "Plenty "magazine declared "so charming that you won't even notice you've absorbed an entire scientific field" and that caused "Seed "to pick "The Stuff of Life "as a best book of 2008, "Evolution "brilliantly answers "Wired"'s demand, "What's the solution to America's crisis in science education? More comic books "

"Evolution," the most accessible graphic work on this universally studied subject, takes the reader from earth's primordial soup to the vestigial structures, like the coccyx and the male nipple, of modern humans. Once again, the award-winning illustrations of the Cannons render the complex clear and everything cleverly comedic. And in Hosler, "Evolution "has an award-winning biology teacher whose science comics have earned him a National Science Foundation grant and an interview on NPR's "Morning Edition."
