Wow. I was expecting one of those stereotypical big-eyed giant-smile girls that come up far too often in "manga style" things . . . but that looks pretty cool.

Hey that is way cool ! I wish I would have had stuff like this when I was a kid. I liked the style of art and they managed to make physics interesting to the average person.IMO I think this has a good chance at reaching alot of kids. Good job ,keep it up Smile

Oh, yeah, Dr. Marc Hairston.

He also runs the most extensive English-language Nadia website (which is over a decade old now), and he is the author of the Nadia vs. Disney's Atlantis rip-off conspiracy theory debunking page.

I'd like it a lot better if it didn't have all those horizontal disruptions. ><;

Manga as a promotional/education tool seems to be quite popular nowadays. However, if the quality is good, it can't be viewed as a bad thing.

Since my mother works for NASA, I've had that neat little book on my desk for a few weeks now.

What I want to know is: how long until the inevitable hentai doujinshi? Very Happy

(And how long before someone cosplays Cindi?)

He also runs


He's also a regular on what I consider the best anime related discussion ML on the internet; The Hayao Miyazaki Mailing List.

Hmm, more pseudo-manga...

Oh well, at least it's educational, and has a cool cover. Very Happy

I liked it. It worked well with my 11-year-old daughter. At least up until the tech calc bit, but what would an 11-year-old need to know that for? Wink On the style of it, Cindi's outfit reminded me of Ryouko's battle suit from Tenchi Muyo. And I know I've seen that hair style somewhere too. Wink

Actually I'm wondering about something: how is that technically a manga? The style looks as American as some of the comics I've read before.
