Big interview with Jim O. 

The Pulse has posted a terrific interview with Jim Ottaviani about Suspended in Language, his forthcoming graphic novel about the life and work of Niels Bohr. The interview is salted with some very cool panels by one of the artists Leland Purvis, who illustrated most of the book.

I had a great time illustrating a Bohr story for Jim, years ago in Two-Fisted Science. Bohr is an fascinating character, one of the giants of the 20th century, and Jim's enthusiasm for him is infectuous, to say the least. I can't wait to sit down and read this one. Leland has brought pages from the book to the studio a few times, and it's been exciting to see the work grow. This preview will give you a taste for the story and a look at Leland's endlessly inventive (yet scrupulously clear) ways of laying out a page.

Suspended in Language is listed in the MAY Previews, on page 314, ("think of Pi") along with the awesome quantum teleportation poster by Roger Langridge . Preorder them both at your local comic book shop.
