Read from February 17 to March 18, 2011

this is quite good in many ways. It's amazing what author smith can do with very few words and stripped down drawings: transitions, flashbacks, multiple stories, inner dialog, out loud dialog, everything one would find in a prose novel. A fascinating take on Tesla, the good ol usa with edison (zapping elephants to prove HIS DC electricity was safer), FDR, einstein, maxwell equations, a cute Hopi girl...
i cannot wait for v. 2.
i think the women in this novel are not strong characters though, they seem smart and strong, but then revert to quiverers. Listen to the HOPI GIRL Rob!
