How to Fake a Moon Landing: Exposing the Myths of Science Denial

“Here’s a look at Darryl Cunningham’s new 176-page comic book, How to Fake a Moon Landing: Exposing the Myths of Science Denial. I enjoyed his levelheaded explanations and charming illustrations that expose anti-science charlatans, flim flam men, and deluded fools.

Is hydro-fracking safe? Is climate change real? Did the moon landing actually happen? How about evolution: fact or fiction? Author-illustrator Darryl Cunningham looks at these and other hot-button science topics and presents a fact-based, visual assessment of current thinking and research on eight different issues everybody’s arguing about. His lively storytelling approach incorporates comics, photographs, and diagrams to create substantive but easily accessible reportage. Cunningham’s distinctive illustrative style shows how information is manipulated by all sides; his easy-to-follow narratives allow readers to draw their own fact-based conclusions. A graphic milestone of investigative journalism!”
