Description



About the Book



In this volume, readers get to know the critters behind history's worst diseases as they delve into the biology and mechanisms of infections, diseases, and immunity, and also the incredible effect that technology and medical science have had on humanity's ability to contain and treat disease.



Book Synopsis



"This useful introduction to the topic of disease and immunity is recommended for graphic novel enthusiasts or as a companion text in science classes."--School Library Journal

Writer/illustrator Falynn Koch's Science Comics: Plagues takes readers across the microscopic battlefield to get to know the critters behind history's worst diseases. We delve into the biology and mechanisms of infections, diseases, and immunity, and also the incredible effect that technology and medical science have had on humanity's ability to contain and treat disease.

Every volume of Science Comics offers a complete introduction to a particular topic--dinosaurs, coral reefs, the solar system, volcanoes, bats, flying machines, and more. These gorgeously illustrated graphic novels offer wildly entertaining views of their subjects. Whether you're a fourth grader doing a natural science unit at school or a thirty-year-old with a secret passion for airplanes, these books are for you!



Review Quotes



Praise for the Science Comics series:

This series--written by a handful of authors--seems determined to offer a useful introduction to anything a curious grade-school student might wonder about. The insight behind these books is a powerful one. So much information about the world around us is actually better conveyed visually, through charts, illustrations, and sequential panels, than purely using words. --New York Times

Like having a Time Life Science Library in comic books. Which is awesome! --Popular Science

Praise for Science Comics: Plagues:

This useful introduction to the topic of disease and immunity is recommended for graphic novel enthusiasts or as a companion text in science classes. --School and Library Journal
