    One thought on “Two-Fisted Science”

    1. Yes indeed this is heavy on Richard Feynman; but since I personally really dig Feynman, that's not an issue. Ottaviani's book all about him has several of the Feynman scenes re-illustrated in a more cohesive way in his graphic novel (let me just type this name one more time:) Feynman.The comics are very short, but anyone with a basic knowledge of science history (mostly around WW II) will probably not need boatloads of extra context. I'm your standard clown and I got through it. Lots of referenc [...]

    2. Two Fisted Science is listed as the work of several graphic artists and writers. The back cover would have you believe that the purpose of the book is to help readers see scientists as humans. At best this is partially achieved.We get a more or less fictionalized retelling of Galileo's problems with the Catholic Church. This is followed by a completely fictional "bar fight "between Newton and Leibniz. Leibniz is shrugged off as a Lawyer when in fact he was a lot of things.The several sections on [...]

    3. A collection of short pieces with anecdotes about famous scientists by various artists. The format is kind of reminiscent of the Big Book series from Paradox Press that did graphic collections on topics like conspiracies and urban legends.More than half the book is taken up by stories about physicist Richard Feynman. Feynman is certainly an interesting character, a sort of minor cult of personality has grown up about him over the years, but these stories are well known. The book could have been [...]

    4. When it was good it was good, when it was bad, it was illegible.I didn't have enough background for the pro-and epilogue to make sense.Feynman's stories had enough detail to be both interesting and new, BUT the switching from one author to another was confusing, and some of the fonts were hard to read there also.The safe-cracker series was the best STORY all in all (4 stars), but it had very little science, which given the title was a let-down.

    5. The bits regarding Feynman, which really makes up most of the book, were great. I didn't know anything about this particular scientist until reading, and now I'm definitely intrigued. A couple of the strips were a little dumb, such as "Shoulders of Giants." And none of the rest interested me as much as the Feynman stories.

    6. 3.5 stars--Jim Ottaviani can pretty much do no wrong in my mind. As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, although I was a bit disappointed in reading a lot of repeat material, having already read Feynman.

    7. Buku ini berisi tentang cerita-cerita para ahli ahli dunia dalam menemukan teori-teori dan penemuan yang kemudian kita kenal saat ini. Perjalanan mereka dipenuhi cerita-cerita unik, konyol bahkan yang cukup menyedihkan.

    8. Outstanding in every way. The stories are interesting and they even have a page talking about my favorite Bertrand Russell story (it's turtles all the way down). Scientists are the real rock stars, man

    9. I was really excited when I'd heard about this book, but it was really sort of a let down. Most of the stories were too short to really gain anything from, and most of the time you really couldn't even tell what was happening. It's a great idea, but it was poorly implemented.

    10. Really loved to get to know the conditions and circumstances under which these great minds worked for all of us to have a future today.Amazing collection of stories! Becoming a fan of Ottaviani.Must read!

    11. Interesting idea, but poor execution. No idea what the context on any of these stories really was, or how many of these scientists contributed to our collective knowledge.

    12. Di buku ini, cerita tentang ilmuwan fisika sableng tukang bobol brankas, Richard Feynman,-nya lumayan banyak! :)Walau memang sebagian sumbernya udah pernah saya baca.
