Mr. Tompkins, the inquisitive bank clerk created in 1937 by esteemed physicist George Gamow--developer of the Big Bang theory of the origin of the universe--returns in a new series of "graphic textbooks"! Previously available only as part of The Adventures of Mr. Tompkins Volume One, this Tompkins adventure finds him on the surface of an uranium atom, learning about it from the "Father of Nuclear Physics", Professor Ernest Rutherford! Whether you are a budding beginner or seasoned scientist, The Adventures of Mr. Tompkins and the Atom provides a feast of fantastic imagery and mind-expanding information! Igor Gamow, son of George Gamow, proudly brings his father's literary hero to the 21st century for a new audience. For thirty-seven years he was a professor of engineering at the University of Colorado in Boulder. He holds numerous patents in the field of bioengineering, including the Gamow Bag, a device that treats high altitude mountain sickness. Scorpio Steele, in addition to illustrating Mr. Tompkins' new adventures, has worked on Spider-Man and Iron Man projects for Marvel Comics, as well as art for the glam-rock band The New York Dolls.
