The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace & Babbage
Tori got me The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace & Babbage by Sydney Padua for Christmas; I’d seen a few scattered excerpts, but didn’t really know anything about the thing as a whole. Turns out it’s rather good. The comics are entertaining, imaginative and well executed, but the real treat are the notes. Padua goes into detail about the characters, history and technology in an informal and engaging way, often exploring surprising tangents. Definitely recommended.
