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. Now you can have it all, with this new comic book on the topic of…Genetics and DNA! 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.
