Neurocomic: 11/21/14

Neurocomic by Hana Ros and Matteo Farinella is a meta nonfiction about the inner workings of the brain. The book follows a man who is sucked into a human brain through a magical portal. His one and only goal is to get back to the beach and to the woman he was meeting.

Each part of the brain is drawn as a combination of the actual physical landscape and a metaphysical one. The metaphysical landscape builds on the way in which that part functions, the background for its name, and how it creates perception. These landscapes while not as gag oriented as the "Monster from the Id" episode of Phineas and Ferb, they are emotionally similar.

As the reader follows the adventure through the cerebral landscape, he or she will learn how the brain works and perhaps get a healthy appreciation for the use of metafiction to educate.

Five stars
