From the Earth to Babylon: Gerald Bull and the Supergun Debuts

So - multiple rounds of copy editing have been completed. Files have been formatted, then formatted a few times, then a few times more for good measure!

And now, here's the cover and the official description with some preview pages too!

From the Earth to Babylon: Gerald Bull and the Supergun
by Diana Tamblyn

Mixing the fascinating approach of historical journalism with a mesmerizing biography comes the wild and crazy, true story of Gerald Bull.

A historical graphic novel based on the life of Canadian Gerald Bull—considered to be one of the most brilliant scientists of the twentieth century and whose work affected the course of two modern wars. Bull’s research led him across the globe, from Canada, to the Pentagon, to Barbados, to South Africa, and finally to Iraq.

This volume tells of how this “boy genius” of rocket science experienced early success with the launch of HARP (the High-Altitude Research Project) with McGill University, to owning one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated space programs with the Space Research Corporation.

I enjoyed the media coverage video and article! Got very stressed, though, when I saw you struggling a bit with the lid of your ink bottle so close to the paper. :)
