Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An accessible graphic introduction to evolution for the most science-phobic reader

Illustrated by the brilliant duo Kevin Cannon and Zander Cannon, this volume is written by the noted comic author and professor of biology Jay Hosler. Evolution features the same characters introduced in the highly regarded The Stuff of Life: A Graphic Guide to Genetics and DNA, now here to explain the fundamentals of the evolution of life on earth. On the heels of explaining to his planetary leader the intricacies of human genetics in The Stuff of Life, the intrepid alien scientist Bloort-183 is charged in this sequel with covering the wider story of evolution. Using the same storytelling conceit that Plenty magazine declared “so charming that you wont even notice youve absorbed an entire scientific field” and that caused Seed to pick The Stuff of Life as a best book of 2008, Evolution brilliantly answers Wireds demand, “Whats the solution to Americas crisis in science education? More comic books!”

Evolution, the most accessible graphic work on this universally studied subject, takes the reader from earths primordial soup to the vestigial structures, like the coccyx and the male nipple, of modern humans. Once again, the award-winning illustrations of the Cannons render the complex clear and everything cleverly comedic. And in Hosler, Evolution has an award-winning biology teacher whose science comics have earned him a National Science Foundation grant and an interview on NPRs Morning Edition.

About the Author

Jay Hosler, a professor of biology at Juniata College and the author/illustrator of three graphic novels, lives in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Kevin Cannon and Zander Cannon, the illustrators of numerous graphic novels and comic books, both live in Minneapolis.
