World of Viruses

World of Viruses Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We live in a world of viruses, biological entities to be confronted not by superheroes in capes but by scientists and informed citizens during their everyday lives. From the bustle of the airport to the wide expanse of the ocean to the remote tundra of the Arctic, viruses infect many different fronts in fascinatingly unique ways.

World of Viruses is a graphic novel that contains the thrilling true stories of well-known threats like foot and mouth disease, HIV, the flu, and HPV, as well as the lesser-known but helpful role that viruses play in saving global ecosystems from out-of-control blooms of algae. The talented artists and writers included in this spectacular graphic novel feature the heroics and adventures of viruses and scientists, as they challenge each other for survival on planet Earth.
