In this volume, join a crystal-crazy fanboy and a famous rock hunter on a geological journey that will take them to the summit of a volcano, deep within the earth, and even into outer space! They'll learn about the unstoppable forces that shape our planet and they might even pick up a gemstone or meteorite along the way.

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

Review Quote*

Praise for Science Comics: Rocks and Minerals:

"A rock-solid review for serious students of our planet's story, infused with humor and wonder."-School Library Journal, starred review

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
