I am happy to announce we now have a comic book about cold fusion and
U.K. publisher Curtis-Press Publisher of Science will be shipping copies
starting Sept. 21.
You can order "Discover Cold Fusion" from their website at
https://www.curtis-press.com/ The story is an effort to create a
narrative about the controversy from the scientist's perspective and
expand the awareness of the science to a wider goup.
The beginning of the story is a brief history of various forms of energy
that humans have used, and then our heroes are introduced. Artist Matt
Howarth does a tremendous job depicting Martin Fleischmann and Stanley
Pons as they discover cold fusion and deal with the consequences.
Attached to this post is a short .pdf with the comic book cover and a
(no, instead see https://www.discovercoldfusion.com/ also
couple sample pages. These pages are the most "sciency" that it gets,
and there is much of the drama that ensued after the news conference.
There are cameos from the whole community of scientists who were first
to try to replicate the experiment, though all the characters are more
Icon than Individual. Sources for the text are listed on the website
I hope you will all buy lots of copies and give them to your friends,
family, and neighbors! Drop one at the dentist office. Mail one to
your governing representatives. Drop one at the Boys and Girls Club,
the high school science department, the college quad. Comic books are
widely read these days by young and old. People will pick it up and
check it out for the artwork alone, and get a dose of new science and
history along with it.
It is sold in the U.K. at British pounds. Here's a currency converter
to help figure the cost. https://www.xe.com/ This Limited Print Edition
has a slightly harder, laminated cover, different from a regular comic
book paper cover, so it is a little more premium quality.
Mike McKubre and Mel Miles consulted and gave lots of suggestions.
However, all the story decisions made were mine and the artist's. Any
flaws are my own. I hope you will enjoy this educational and fun object
d'art and I look forward to your comments. With all that is going wrong
in this world, I'm glad to offer something fun to hang our hope on.
