"This useful introduction to the topic of disease and immunity is recommended for graphic novel enthusiasts or as a companion text in science classes."--School Library Journal

Writer/illustrator Falynn Koch's Science Comics: Plagues takes readers across the microscopic battlefield to get to know the critters behind history's worst diseases. We delve into the biology and mechanisms of infections, diseases, and immunity, and also the incredible effect that technology and medical science have had on humanity's ability to contain and treat disease.

Every volume of Science Comics offers a complete introduction to a particular topic--dinosaurs, coral reefs, the solar system, volcanoes, bats, flying machines, and more. These gorgeously illustrated graphic novels offer wildly entertaining views of their subjects. 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
