Plagues: The Microscopic Battlefield by Falynn Christine Koch is part of the SCIENCE COMICS series, a graphics series of books each of which explores a single scientific topic. In this case, as the title might indicate, its plague, but more broadly it’s an examination of how pathogens (bacteria,...

While I like the series SCIENCE COMICS I thought "The Microscopic Battlefield" was a little tough to follow. The science was complex enough with so many strains of viruses, bacteria, fungi, and flagella to keep track of, but the authors wanted us to follow the story of the scientists who use simu...

I'm a big fan of the Science Comics series, but this entry is undercooked (there's a better, illness-related joke there, but I just can't think of it at the moment). The framing device revolves around a scientist who has recruited anthropomorphized versions of the black plague and yellow fever to...

I really enjoyed this graphic novel. The set up for this book was very interesting and would be an excellent book for students to read.

I enjoyed the process of the scientist talking to the germs to enlist them in h...

There are two things I love: comics and reading about infectious diseases. Science Comics: Plagues combined both, making me a very happy nerd. Definitely recommend to young people, or anyone, really, looking for a refr...

Definitely one of the better volumes in the science comics series. Still fairly dense for younger readers, but the frame story is fun and interesting and the science is great! Possibly too much for a first dive into the material, but an excellent follow up to the very basics.
