The fascinating life of the electrical engineer and physicist Nikola Tesla will be portrayed in a graphic novel called “The Inventor” will be launched at Comic-Con 2012, which begins Thursday in San Diego, USA.
The story was written by Rave Mehta, and is based on “Tesla’s journey from its birth in an epic thunderstorm, on his arrival in America, where its greatest mentor, Thomas Edison, becomes his greatest enemy and starts War of the Currents , “said Mehta told Wired .
The 150-page book can pre-order on the official website , and the first chapter is free to download. Mehta conceived the project five years ago while working on the board of Space Florida and the research program of the Stephen Hawking Microgravity Education Research Center.
