Leo Ortolani is one of the most popular and beloved italian comic authors. And he is a geologist.
There couldn’t have been a better choice to get us started, and so he was the first to sign his name to Comics&Science, with the historic, sold-out first issue dedicated to Science.
Science with a capital S, the ‘hard’ kind: Mathematics, Astronomy, Computer Science, in a memorable episode of… Misterius! The “program” where Ortolani talks about Science, originally from the pages of his Rat-Man and readily adopted by Comics&Science, inaugurated the typical format that combines comics and in-depth studies. Guest of honour, the great French mathematician – and living comic – Cédric Villani.
