Logicomix

If you like graphic novels, math, philosophy, logic, or anything, really, you absolutely must read Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth.  The graphic novel, written by Apostolos Doxiadis and Christos H. Papadimitriou and illustrated by Alecos Papadatos and Annie Di Donna, is an amazing look at the life and work of Bertrand Russell.  As a computer science major who also dreams of being a graphic novelist, I am mesmerized both by the story itself and by the ways in which the storytellers present it visually.  Unlike most graphic novels I’ve read, Logicomix features illustrated scenes of discussions between the book’s creators, and the interweaving of their storyline with that of Russell and his fellow logicians is especially intriguing.  Logicomix is an excellent read – no wonder it made the New York Times Bestseller list!
