[Update]: the Girl in the Yellow Hat sent me this: The Big Idea, where Ottaviani speaks on the inspirations and challenges of creating the work.
Thanks Girl.

So– there’s this, from First Second Publishing.

Ummm… I like comics.  And I’ve always heard that this Feynman fellow is worth reading about.  Honestly, his autobiography has been on my ‘to read’ list for quite some time (too long, quite frankly).  But now there’s a fast-food version available.  yay

“Richard Feynman: physicist . . . Nobel winner . . . bestselling author . . . safe-cracker.

In this substantial graphic novel biography, First Second presents the larger-than-life exploits of Nobel-winning quantum physicist, adventurer, musician, world-class raconteur, and one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century: Richard Feynman.
Anyone who ever wanted to know more about Richard P. Feynman, quantum electrodynamics, the fine art of the bongo drums, the outrageously obscure nation of Tuva, or the development and popularization of the field of physics in the United States need look no further than this rich and joyful work.”

The product will be released August 30.
