The Stuff of Life: A Graphic Guide to Genetics and DNA



The Stuff of Life: A Graphic Guide to Genetics and DNA is written by Mark Schultz and illustrated by Kevin and Zander Cannon. The official description:

Let’s face it: From adenines to zygotes, from cytokinesis to parthenogenesis, even the basics of genetics can sound utterly alien. So who better than an alien to explain it all? Enter Bloort 183, a scientist from an asexual alien race threatened by disease, who’s been charged with researching the fundamentals of human DNA and evolution and laying it all out in clear, simple language so that even his slow-to-grasp-the-point leader can get it. In the hands of the award-winning writer Mark Schultz, Bloort’s predicament becomes the means of giving even the most science-phobic reader a complete introduction to the history and science of genetics that’s as easy to understand as it is entertaining to read.
You can get it signed by Zander at NY Comic Con. It's currently 32% off at Amazon.
