T-Minus: The Race to the Moon

Now here’s a book that everyone can enjoy. Writer Jim Ottaviani masterfully tells the true tale of the space race between Russia and the US, starting 100 years before we ever got to the moon. But unlike classics such as The Right Stuff or Apollo 13, this story almost entirely focuses on the faceless scientists tirelessly laboring throughout the decades to make the dream real. Wonderfully rendered by Zander Cannon and Kevin Cannon (no relation), the work is simple and straightforward yet quite expressive. Besides being entertaining and educational, this may be one of the single greatest examples of the comic book form, employing virtually all of the elements which make the medium unique. Kevin told me this was due to budgetary concerns which demanded less pages be produced, proving again how necessity breeds innovation. If you’ve never read a comic in your life, I really can’t think of an easier way to test the waters.
