Summary
  • "A story of the Manhattan Project and the price J. Robert Oppenheimer, Leo Szilard, and we all paid for the atomic bomb."
  • So, you've always wanted to learn how to build an atomic bomb? You're in luck; Jim Ottaviani is not only a comics writer, he also has a master's degree in nuclear engineering! But even though it's not a complete do-it our self manual (assembly required, and plutonium is definitely NOT included), Fallout will bring group up to speed on the science and politics of the nuclear gadgets. The focus of Fallout is on scientists, in particular J. Robert Oppenheimer and Leo Szilard, whose lives offer a cautionary tale about the uneasy alliance between the military, the government, and the beginnings of "big science"
