Logicomix“Logicomix” was a best seller in the author’s, Apostolos Doxiadis, native Greece when it was released last year and now number-fiends in the U.S. can get their hands on this book that combines mathematical theories and philosophy within a film-noir-esque comic.

“Improbable material for comic-book treatment? Not really. The principals in this intellectual drama are superheroes of a sort. They go up against a powerful nemesis, who might be called Dark Antinomy. Each is haunted by an inner demon, the Specter of Madness. Their quest has a tragic arc, not unlike that of Superman or Donald Duck.” Link!
