    3.5. These Science Comics are just about as irresistible as a potato chip from a newly-opened bag. Just like the chip, readers take one book and they find themselves drawn into reading more, more, more. Because the science is depicted in a graphic novel form with plenty of color and pa...

    The Future Is Now! This volume is part of the "Science Comics" series. The series started with some predictable topics - dinosaurs, volcanoes, and so on - but it seems to be expanding to cover less obvious and more "scientific" topics. Upcoming titles address rockets, sharks, and tr...
