Genius; Seagle & Kristiansen

 Genius is the new fantastic graphic novel by Steven T. Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen, published by First Second for a mere $17.99. Seagle and Kristiansen have collaborated on many of my favorite graphic novels like It's A Bird (an excellent, very different kind of Superman story), Red Diary (two WWI stories), and Vertigo's House of Secrets. With their new work, Genius, they do not disappoint.

 Genius is about Ted, who develops genius level intelligence very early in life, about puberty, family, and what happens when genius doesn't lead the possessor of said intelligence to rewards in the physical world. Ultimately, Genius is a beautiful book about a man who loves and cares about his family and wants to provide for them. His solution for doing this when he's no longer able to contribute in the realm of theory or big ideas is wonderful and there's several people I ca't wait to share Genius with.
