Written by Steven T. Seagle
Drawn by Teddy Kristiansen
Published by First Second Books
Steven T. Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen manage to bring out the best in each other, and in this compact book they tell the story of a scientist, examine the myth of Einstein, look at different forms of intelligence and take the reader and characters through trauma and uncertainty into a more hopeful space with new possibilities.

Kristiansen uses a subtle color palette and roughly-hewn line work to express the struggle faced by a physicist when he discovers a world-altering secret. As the protagonist examines his life, weighing his options in an attempt to make a decision, we begin to feel the immediacy and intimacy of his internal struggle. Seagle and Kristiansen work together like a well-oiled machine, taking turns to let the words and imagery tell the story in equal measure to far greater effect than if one or the other dominated.
