Logicomix by Apostolos Doxiadis

Graphic novel telling the spiritual journey of philosopher and mathematician Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) as he seeks to unearth the foundations of mathematics. From childhood to his later years, this book tells the life story of one great thinkers of the 20th century.

Very fascinating book. How often do you find a mathematician as a protagonist in a comic book? Author does a great job of breaking down complex mathematical concepts and telling Bertrand’s life story. Fun read with unique artistic style.
