Críticas:

"Trinity illuminates a turning-point in human history, and does so with admirable pace, grace, and skill." --Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing "Succeeds as both a graphic primer and a philosophical meditation." --Kirkus (starred review) "Fetter-Vorm's work . . . is altogether exemplary. And the writing's as good as the art, making this a strong primer on the A-bomb's development." --Booklist "The story behind the weapon that ended World War II and changed the nature of international conflicts forever, Trinity covers both the scientific, technical side of building the bomb and the very human side of realizing what its existence would mean for mankind." --Mashable "A succinct, compelling, and dramatically illustrated history of the making of the atomic bomb, Trinity is an excellent primer for students and younger readers." --Cynthia C. Kelly, founder and president of the Atomic Heritage Foundation and editor of The Manhattan Project "The story of J. Robert Oppenheimer and the creation of the first atomic bomb lies deep in our collective imagination. Jonathan Fetter-Vorm's graphic novel honors the physics, the politics, and the human drama of this contemporary morality tale in a manner that is as informative as it is entertaining." --John Adams, Pulitzer Prize winner and composer of Doctor Atomic "The story of the Manhattan Project has rarely been told with this much clarity and alertness to moral nuance." --Joseph Kanon, author of Los Alamos "A hugely important story told with virtuosity and heart, Jonathan Fetter-Vorm's Trinity is a standard-bearer for great comics." --Nick Bertozzi, Harvey Award-winning author of The Salon and the Rubber Necker series "Trinity" illuminates a turning-point in human history, and does so with admirable pace, grace, and skill.

Reseña del editor:

In "Trinity", the illustrator Jonathan Fetter-Vorm tells the history of the race to build and the decision to drop the first atomic bomb, and the ethical debates that followed. He sets the stage with early research in Europe, which began prior to World War I and accelerated rapidly as World War II approached. He takes special care to explain the process of a nuclear chain reaction, transporting the reader into a splitting atom in the vivid way that only a graphic book can. The action then shifts to Los Alamos, and Fetter-Vorm showcases the strong personalities of the physicists under the supervision of the Manhattan Project leader J. Robert Oppenheimer and high-level military personnel. These men and women wrestled daily with both the difficulty of building an atomic weapon and the moral implications of actually succeeding. When the first bomb finally went off at a test site code-named Trinity, the world was irreversibly thrust into a new and far more dangerous age. Richly illustrated and deeply researched, "Trinity" is dramatic, informative, and thought-provoking.
