A lot of magic happens under the Earth's crust. Thanks to magma vents, shifting continental plates, and volcanic eruptions, we know that our planet is alive and in motion.

Praise For Science Comics: Volcanoes: Fire and Life…
"Like having a Time Life Science Library in comic books. Which is awesome!" —Popular Science, praise for the Science Comics Series
"Chad’s well-drawn and clearly labeled diagrams in rich, saturated colors concisely explain key concepts, and vocabulary words are defined both in the text and a glossary. While the stylized cartoon figures and adventure narrative are an entertaining framework, the science fittingly occupies the center stage." —Booklist
"The artwork is bold and engaging, cleverly intertwining the science and the more fantastical elements of the narrative."— School Library Journal
