A graphic novel about female scientists as illustrated by female artists! Awesome! This book was a quick but very fun read. I loved it! ( )

Most of the subjects will unfortunately be unknown to the casual reader, which makes the stories even more enjoyable and enlightening.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0966010647, Paperback)

This original graphic novel features famous women scientists including Marie Curie, Emmy Noether, Lise Meitner, Rosalind Franklin, Barbara McClintock, Birute Galdikas, and Hedy Lamarr. The stories offer a human context often missing when we learn about the discoveries attached to these scientists' names. Readers, drawn in by the compelling anecdotes, will discover intriguing characters. End notes and references will lead them to further information on the scientists they've read about.
