Comical DNA

Love genetics and DNA, but can’t keep all thos proteins straight? Or maybe you just like the idea of a caricature of a gene. Fear not.

Called  The Stuff of Life: A Graphic Guide to Genetics and DNA, it is just the first in a series of comic books devoted to the hard sciences.

While I do think this is a great way to get kids to read and think about science in a different way, I am a little pessimistic only because it seems difficult to get kids to read at all these days. Overall, though, I think this is a great way to express genetics and DNA and science in a visual, creative way that engages readers.
