Darwin: A Graphic Biography

By Eugene Byrne

Rating: 3 stars

This short graphic novel was being given away free as part of the Darwin 200 celebrations. It’s a sketch (no pun intended) charting Darwin’s life and the decisions and milestones that led to natural selection. The language is clear and pretty simple and the art is sketchy but clear. The book is framed by the device of a group of anthropomorphic apes making a documentary about an orchid and nebulously tying that to evolution.

A good way to get an overview of Darwin’s life.
