On the heels of explaining to his planetary leader the intricacies of human genetics inThe Stuff of Life, the intrepid alien scientist Bloort-183 is charged in this sequel with covering the wider story of evolution. Using the same storytelling conceit thatPlentymagazine declared “so charming that you won’t even notice you’ve absorbed an entire scientific field” and that causedSeedto pickThe Stuff of Lifeas a best book of 2008,Evolutionbrilliantly answersWired’s demand, “What’s the solution to America’s crisis in science education? More comic books!”Evolution, the most accessible graphic work on this universally studied subject, takes the reader from earth’s primordial soup to the vestigial structures, like the coccyx and the male nipple, of modern humans.
