Reviews

Impressive ... Simultaneously a standout historical examination and a compelling story * Booklist *
It's fun, it's heartbreaking, it's thought-provoking, and it's tragic - and it's absolutely one of the greatest graphic novels I expect to read all year * i09 *
A colorful love letter to Greek history * Kirkus *
Probably the best and certainly the most extraordinary graphic novel I have ever come across * Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times on LOGICOMIX *
Logicomix is highly original, a rich and enthralling encounter with myth, maths, theatre and the giants of twentieth-century philosophy * Posy Simmonds on LOGICOMIX *
An extraordinary piece of work... Its great subject is the historical desire to make the world totally understandable by reason, and it itches us inside the debate * John Walsh, Independent on LOGICOMIX *
