Every volume of Science Comics offers a complete introduction to a particular topic—dinosaurs, coral reefs, the solar system, volcanoes, bats, flying machines, and more. These gorgeously illustrated graphic novels offer wildly entertaining views of their subjects. Whether you're a fourth grader doing a natural science unit at school or a thirty-year-old with a secret passion for airplanes, these books are for you!
This volume: In Bats, we follow a little brown bat whose wing is injured by humans on a nature hike. He is taken to a bat rehabilitation center where he meets many different species of bats. They teach him how they fly, what they eat, and where they like to live.
About the Author
Falynn Koch can be an illustrator, comic book artist, or storyteller, depending on when you ask. Born in Buffalo, NY, she then went everywhere, near and far, and wound up in Philadelphia, PA with her two dogs and fiancee. Falynn once owned a food truck, is fascinated by germs and microbes, and has drunk mountain water with life enhancing properties (so the locals told her) on three different continents, and hasn't died from it yet! She graduated with a degree in Sequential Art from SCAD, and Science Comics: Bats is her first graphic novel with First Second. Her favorite things to draw are illogical mythological creatures.
