It's summer, so here's some light entertainment:
In honor of Ada Lovelace Day last March, Artist Sydney Padua created a comic featuring the mostly-true-except-for-the-inaccurate-bits story of Ada Lovelace's childhood, education, and her fateful meeting with Charles Babbage which ultimately lead to their crime-fighting partnership (I mentioned the inaccurate bits, right?). It's steampunk, it's geeky, and it's got copious explanatory notes - what more does a comic need?
Check out Ada Lovelace - The Origin. Then read the continuing adventures of Lovelace and Babbage:
- Lovelace and Babbage vs. The Economy
- Metaphysical Speculation Into The Nature of This Comic, or: Lovelace and Babbage vs The Salamander People
- Lovelace and Babbage vs. The Client (currently in progress).
