Description


In Dan Zettwoch's Science Comics: Cars, you'll learn where cars came from and how they work. When you pop the hood, what are you looking at? How does gasoline—or electric batteries, or even steam—make a car move? Rev up your motor and take look at the combustible history of the automobile and its explosive effects on our modern lives.

Every volume of Science Comics offers a complete introduction to a particular topic—dinosaurs, the solar system, robots, and more. 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!

About the Author


Dan Zettwoch makes slice-of-life comics, goofball illustrations, how-to diagrams and folksy art in his house in St. Louis. His books include Birdseye Bristoe (Drawn & Quarterly), Amazing Facts & Beyond (Uncivilized Books), and lots of self-published mini-comics. At the request of his two-year old son Archie he just finished a massive neon green and silver screenprint showing the mechanical and historical underpinnings of The Monster Truck. He always has ink all over himself. Science Comics: Cars is his first book with First Second.

Praise For…


"The winding scenery that gives this journey warmth is historical anecdotes...Zettwoch imbues his visually dense pages with personality and flow befitting his subject." —Booklist

"This breezy spin through the past, present, and (near) future of cars and related vehicles speeds down a well-traveled road, but its graphic format will give it particular appeal to readers years away from learner’s permits." —School Library Journal
