Step aside, superheroes: Richard Feynman is getting his own graphic novel.

The graphic biography Feynman, out next week, follows the scientist from his early years as a curious student to the Manhattan Project, the Nobel Prize, and his his famous participation in the Challenger disaster investigation.

Writing in the New York Review of Books, Freeman Dyson says this book, along with Lawrence Krauss’ biography Quantum Man, suggests Feynman may be “rising to the status of superstar.”
