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!
In this 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.
|Biographical Note||Dan Zettwoch makes slice-of-life comics, goofball illustrations, how-to diagrams, and folksy art in his house in St. Louis, Missouri. His books include Birdseye Bristoe (Drawn & Quarterly), Amazing Facts & Beyond! (Uncivilized Books), and lots of self-published mini-comics. He recently finished a series of homemade screen prints about local gross foods, baseball statistics, and, at the request of his son Archie, monster trucks. His first car was a silver 1984 Volvo 740 Turbo. Science Comics: Cars is his first book with First Second.|
