“Comics are not books” or you are a fucking dinosaur.

Sometime back a customer was pointing out to his teenage son something which we believe is not true. The man did not want his son to pick up some comics before we had an instant intervention the man made the mistake of saying really stupid in our store: “Comics are not books”.

THE THRILLING ADVENTURES OF LOVELACE AND BABBAGE

Ready to fall into a rabbit hole?

Our intervention went by stating, you sir are seriously mistaken, comics are books in some truly exceptional cases they transcend the realm of books, we picked up these books and the man walked out with two of these lovely beauties…

This is a tale of a little boy scout who grew up with a heart and conscience, became a sys-admin at the NSA (big evil spying agency) It covers his early life experiences, his personality and privacy and governmental surveillance. It is a story of a young idealist against the most powerful government in the world. Read it think about it and ask your self if you were in the same position if you would do the same thing?

Neurocomic is a wonderfully illustrated book which beings you up to speed with all of the usual suspects in the functioning of your brain, yes your brain. You get an introduction to all the great pioneers in the field of neurosciences. If you have ever wondered about how the damned thing works and have found your knowledge on the subject lacking you might want to really look into this one.

Feynman a safe cracker, a physicist, a Nobel prize winner one man who was a little larger than life, quite possibly one of the greatest minds that we have had. The storyscape in this book covers his life from childhood, his work on the Manhattan project, the challenger disaster, if you want a curious mind to celebrate the mans sense of wonder this might be a good start before any of his books.

The true parents of the computer? Meet Charles Babbage and his accomplice Ada, the Countess of Lovelace. footnotes for Babbage’s plans for a mechanical calculating machine contained the first presentation of a computational theory over a hundred years before the first computer was actually built, Lovelace died young and Babbage never built his machine…

Wait, there are hilarious alter-verses where the duo kick ass in Victorian London, let these images speak for the book.

In short if you still think comics are not books you are a fucking dinosaur.
