Shogakukan Biographical Comics is a series of biographies of inspirational historical figures in an easy-to-read manga format. These books are as fun to read as any manga, but the stories they tell are based entirely on historical fact.

The creator of over 1,300 inventions that have shaped our modern world, Thomas Alva Edison was truly the “king of invention.” The movie projector, the phonograph, the storage battery, and the electric light bulb are just a few of the revolutionary devices Edison invented that have enriched our lives and even changed the course of civilization.
