Darwin US Comic

Did you know that yesterday was Charles Darwin's birthday (12/2/1809)? To mark the occasion Smithsonian Books has published Darwin: A Graphic Biography written by Eugene Byrne with artwork by cartoonist and illustrator Simon Gurr (CLICK). The comic is aimed at readers aged from 10 to 15 and explores Darwin's life from his inquisitive boyhood, through his adventures in Africa, South America and Australia, to becoming the world's most revolutionary scientist. The paperback costs $9.95 from Smithsonian Books or £5.67 from Amazon UK. The big question is: Will it persuade the offspring of religious fruitcakes to give Creationism the bum's rush?
