BUY THE BOOK

In Dan Zettwoch's Science Comics: Cars, you'll learn where cars came from and how they work. When you pop the hood, what are you looking at? How does gasoline—or electric batteries, or even steam—make a car move? Rev up your motor and take look at the combustible history of the automobile and its explosive effects on our modern lives.

Every volume of Science Comics offers a complete introduction to a particular topic—dinosaurs, the solar system, robots, and more. Whether you're a fourth grader doing a natural science unit at school or a thirty year old with a secret passion for airplanes, these books are for you!

Praise for Science Comics: Cars

Praise for the Science Comics series:

"This series—written by a handful of authors—seems determined to offer a useful introduction to anything a curious grade-school student might wonder about. The insight behind these books is a powerful one. So much information about the world around us is actually better conveyed visually, through charts, illustrations, and sequential panels, than purely using words." —New York Times

"Like having a Time Life Science Library in comic books. Which is awesome!" —Popular Science


Praise for Science Comics: Cars:

"The winding scenery that gives this journey warmth is historical anecdotes...Zettwoch imbues his visually dense pages with personality and flow befitting his subject." —Booklist

"This breezy spin through the past, present, and (near) future of cars and related vehicles speeds down a well-traveled road, but its graphic format will give it particular appeal to readers years away from learner’s permits." —School Library Journal

Reviews from Goodreads

Dan Zettwoch

Dan Zettwoch makes slice-of-life comics, goofball illustrations, how-to diagrams, and folksy art in his house in St. Louis, Missouri. His books include Birdseye Bristoe (Drawn & Quarterly), Amazing Facts & Beyond! (Uncivilized Books), and lots of self-published mini-comics. He has finished a series of homemade screen prints about local gross foods, baseball statistics, and, at the request of his son Archie, monster trucks. His first car was a silver 1984 Volvo 740 Turbo. Science Comics: Cars is his first book with First Second.
