Charles Darwin meticulously spelled out the Theory of Evolution in his most famous book, On the Origin of Species (1859). It was the first book on the subject of Evolution that presented the material in a clear and accessible manner that enabled not only scientists, but also the general educated populace to understand Evolution. 150 years later, however, Michael Keller and Nicolle Rager Fuller are helping to make Darwin’s masterpiece accessible to even more people by presenting the information in the form of a graphic novel. This medium is especially powerful for this book, because it was through seeing the world that Darwin was able to develop his Theory on Evolution. Presenting the material in this new and interesting way will help to bring Darwin’s research to the next generation and will hopefully inspire them through its words and images that Evolution is process by which the world has formed. It should also be noted that I stumbled upon this book, because of how well made it was, being recognized within the graphic novel community with a 2010 Eisner Award Nomination for Best Adaptation of Another Work.
