Is hydro-fracking really safe? Is climate change real? Did the moon landing really happen? How about evolution: fact or fiction? Author-illustrator Darryl Cunningham looks at these and other hot-button science topics and presents a fact-based, visual assessment of current thinking and research on eight different issues everybody's arguing about. His lively storytelling approach incorporates comics, photographs, and diagrams to create substantive but easily accessible reportage. Cunningham's distinctive illustrative style shows how information is manipulated by all sides and his easy-to-follow narratives allow readers to draw their own conclusions.

Thoughtful rebuttal book against the conspiracy theorists, the quacks, the denialers, the rich & the powerful.
Author conclude science & its methodology is important in explaining the universe.

Science writer and cartoonist Cunningham effectively uses the comics medium to expose controversial ideas and concepts. With comics, photographs, diagrams, and text amazingly free of scientific jargon, Cunningham painstakingly debunks nutcases and challenges skeptics. The moon hoax, homeopathy, chiropractic, the MMR vaccination scandal, evolution, fracking, and climate change fall under the author's cool, critical analysis. While the intelligent and witty Cunningham ruffles feathers from both sides of most of these debates, How to Fake a Moon Landing promises an entertaining and important piece of investigative science journalism.

Great job on the MMR vaccine and fracking parts! A little weak on the moon landing though.

Brilliant graphic novel debunking myths and presenting the truths of well known scientific fact. It even includes a list of references for each chapter.
