Stephen Hawking is the world-famous physicist with a cameo in The Simpsons on his CV", but outside his academic field his work is little understood. To the public he is a tragic figure - a brilliant scientist and author of the 9 million-copy-selling "A Brief History of Time", and yet confined to a wheelchair and almost completely paralysed. Hawking''s major contribution to science has been to integrate the two great theories of 20th-century physics - Einstein''s General Theory of Relativityand Quantum Mechanics. J.P. McEvoy and Oscar Zarate''s brilliant graphic guide explores Hawking''s life, the evolution of his work from his days as a student, and his breathtaking discoveries about where these fundamental laws break down or overlap, such as on the edge of a Black Hole or at the origin of the Universe itself."
Oscar Zarate is one of the UK's leading graphic artists. He has illustrated numerous Introducing titles. His graphic novel A Small Killing won the Will Eisner Prize.
