Science Comics: Wild Weather by M. K. Reed - OPTIONAL

Science Comics: Wild Weather by M. K. Reed, 119 pages. GRAPHIC NOVEL. First Second (Macmillan), 2019. $19.99

Language: G (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content: G; Violence: G



An educational graphic novel featuring Stormin’ Norman Weatherby, a news channel meteorologist. When Stormin’ Norman becomes frustrated with the ignorance of his coworkers regarding weather, he sets them straight—on the air!

I thought the degrading humor was a bit juvenile and overdone, but I think this graphic novel style teaches science effectively because it has to be simple enough to come through in short, connected pieces and is based on pictures. Some of the topics covered are still hard to understand in their simplified form, but I feel like I understand climate change and other weather topics better now than I did before.
