Summary, etc.: A graphic adaptation of one of the most famous and contested books of all time. Few books have been as controversial or as historically significant as Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Since the moment it was released on November 24, 1859, Darwin's masterwork has been heralded for changing the course of science and condemned for its implied challenges to religion. In this graphic novel adaptation, the authors introduce a new generation of readers to Darwin's original text. Including sections about his pioneering research, the book's initial public reception, his correspondence with other leading scientists, as well as the most recent breakthroughs in evolutionary theory, this adaptation breathes new life into Darwin's seminal and still polarizing work.
