Richard Feynman: The New Graphic Novel


Last week, we highlighted The Last Journey Of A Genius, a documentary that recorded the final days of the great physicist Richard Feynman and his obsession with traveling to Tannu Tuva, a state outside of outer Mongolia.

Now here is what next week will bring — a new “substantial graphic novel biography” that “presents the larger-than-life exploits of the Nobel-winning quantum physicist, adventurer, musician and world-class raconteur.” The book written by Jim Ottaviani and illustrated by Leland Myrick runs a fairly hefty 272 pages. The video clip on Youtube will give you a good feel for the artwork that tells Feynman’s personal tale.
