Get ready to explore the depths of the ocean, the farthest reaches of space, and everything in between! Volcanic eruptions, vampire bats, feathered velociraptors, and more await you in SCIENCE COMICS.

In a not-so-distant future our world is as cold as a frozen burrito. But can humanity save itself by harnessing a power that dwells inside the Earth? Explode into the world of geology in Volcanoes: Fire and Life!

Editorial Reviews

"Like having a Time Life Science Library in comic books. Which is awesome!" -Popular Science, praise for the Science Comics Series"Chad's well-drawn and clearly labeled diagrams in rich, saturated colors concisely explain key concepts, and vocabulary words are defined both in the text and a glossary. While the stylized cartoon figures and adventure narrative are an entertaining framework, the science fittingly occupies the center stage." -Booklist"The artwork is bold and engaging, cleverly intertwining the science and the more fantastical elements of the narrative."- School Library Journal
