Bertrand Russell's Comic Life

Yes, famous skeptic Bertrand Russell is coming to a comic book near you. Logicomix: An Epic Search For Truth is described as follows:

"While the life of Bertrand Russell is the core narrative of Logicomix, the book's focus is really on Russell's life work -- a passionate and ultimately futile attempt to establish a foundation for modern mathematics on clear and concretely stated logic ... Logicomix can be seen as a book about Russell's failure to achieve his goals ... an accessible general primer on basic mathematics, reason and logic that will engage ordinary readers while it skillfully shows the connections between Russell's own search for intellectual certainty and the great moral questions of our time. Not a bad day's work for a comic book."
