Synopsis: Ted Marx works hard at his career as a quantum physicist. But lately the demands of his job have begun to overwhelm him. Then Ted makes a startling discovery: his wife's father once knew Einstein and claims that Einstein entrusted to him a final, devastating secret—a secret even more profound and shattering than the work that led to the first atom bombs. If Ted can convince his father-in-law to tell him what Einstein had to say, his job will be safe. But does he dare reveal Einstein's most dangerous secret to those who might exploit it? Acclaimed duo Teddy H. Kristiansen and Steven T. Seagle have created in Genius an exploration of the heights of intellectual and scientific achievement and the depths of human emotion and confusion.
Review: An aging physicist learns that his dying father-in-law was told a secret from Albert Einstein.
This novel follows that physicist and his family as they deal with medical issues, work issues, and family issues. The artwork uses sketches and watercolor. There are some adult situations in this graphic novel.
I found the build up written very well. I wanted him to find the secret out so bad. The family was also written very well with each of the members appearing very real.
I would recommend this graphic novel to readers who enjoy intellectual reading and also situations that come from being an intellectual. I give it a 3.5/5.
