Did I wash my hands before handling the book? Yes, I did. I didn’t want to smear these glossy pages with my inky filthy fingers!

...not just cartoons and comics, but lots of illustrations, too...

In some cases, my comics actually help the reader to understand the hard science behind things like The Twin Paradox (Special Relativity), Black Holes, and General Relativity (Space-Time is weird, folks, super super weird!)

Ah, and the smell of this book! (How can you tell I have a thing for print?) It smells of ink mingled with pulpy substances — a bookish smell, strangely intoxicating!

Hey! Look who dropped in for a visit:

From Bottom Left: Erwin, Maxwell, Emmy, and the human Boris Lemmer (co-author)

Seriously, I love the idea that my work, along with the work of my co-authors— Benjamin Bahr, and Boris Lemmer— has at last leapt from the drawing board, and out onto the world. The book is ready to be looked at, read, commented on, reviewed, downloaded, and enjoyed. Go for it, get a copy, and tell me what you think. Got a science lover in your family? A friend who loves cartoons about science? Both? Get them this book for their birthday, they’ll love it.

Want your book signed? Come to TCAF (Toronto Comic Arts Festival) this May, and I’ll personalize it for you. (More on TCAF soon.)
