66) Feynman, by Jim Ottaviani and Leland Myrick

I'm a bit overdue in posting this; Worldcon ate my brain and my time. This is a new graphic-biography of Richard Feynman, written by the always-great Jim Ottaviani, and drawn by Leland Myrick. Because I've read Feynman and Feynman bios in the past, the broad strokes were familiar to me, but I learned new info, too. It's a mostly-chronological (but sometimes thematic) overview of his life and achievements from childhood on, including highlights from several of his lectures. I understand Feynman diagrams much better now than I did before!

I was lucky enough to read an early copy; it releases Aug. 30th. Check your local independent comic shop or bookstore, or order online!

Update: tor.com is posting excerpts here: http://www.tor.com/stories/2011/08/the-five-faces-of-feynman
