The Illustrious, Illustrated Nikola Tesla

220px-Tesla_circa_1890Nikola Tesla, whose 157th birthday passed just about two weeks ago, can be considered the father of the modern day electrical grid (his favored AC system won out over the more dangerous DC touted by Thomas Edison) and an all-around incredible physicist and inventor. As if that weren’t enough to his credit, he also exists in comic book form (created by Physics Central).

It’s an effort to make science more exciting for kids, but it also provides an interesting look into some of Tesla’s biography and the important events his life. It reminds me of another illustrated biography that I’ve been meaning to read: Logicomix, a graphic novel about the life of Bertrand Russell and his contributions to mathematics.
