Author(s): Corinne Maier
Brought together for the first time, this collection of witty graphic biographies delves into the minds of three of the most controversial, outspoken, and important thinkers from the 19th and 20th centuries.
Through Anne Simon's irreverent illustrative comics style and Corinne Maier's witty, researched writing, readers can join the fight against capitalism with Karl Marx, meet the father of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud, and discover the fundamentals of physics with Albert Einstein. Explore complex scientific, psychological and political ideas in a wryly intelligent graphic novel format!
I enjoyed the three Nobrow graphic biographies by Corinne Maier and Anne Simon when I read them last year. I learned new things about the subjects and appreciated the storytelling. Now Nobrow is reissuing the three of them in one volume as Marx, Freud, Einstein: Heroes of the Mind. [...] the combined edition will be a great value. - Comics Worth Reading
