Who exclaimed 'Eureka' and why? What is the Philosopher's Stone? Why did Galileo get into a fight with the Church? What happens when someone has their DNA tested? All these questions and many more are answered in a chronological journey from ancient times to modern Quantum Theory, with creators Margreet and Yiri as the witty guides. This is a great comic book for anyone who wants to learn in a fun way the bigger framework of science, or brush up on what they learned in school.

Review:

"Light in tone and with a clear and concise cartoony style, De Heer keeps things fun and fascinating... De Heer has succeeded in creating a fun and accessible world of science, and we're already feeling better about ourselves for having read it. Hooray for that." --Comic Heroes

"A fun whistle stop tour of the main points of Scientific progress through the ages. It's fun, it's playful, it's surprisingly comprehensive in its breadth." --Forbidden Planet International
