From Alpha: Directions by Jens Harder.
This experience blew my mind away. The graphical novel tells a story of evolution of the Universe, from the very beginning to first ape-men. A boiling fusion of visions and concepts. I enjoyed every bit of it even though I don’t read German.
The second volume, Beta: Civilisations, was released in Feb 2014. It’s about the human evolution. As you might guess, it is also awesome.
These two are among favourites on my bookshelf, right next to the books of Roger Penrose, Ilya Prigogine, Jared Diamond and some albums on world arts. No name-dropping, I just want to underline how insipational the novel is.
