Book Review: Neurocomic Graphic Novel by Dr. Matteo Farinella and Dr. Hana Ros


Ever wondered what makes you tick? How your brain works?What it’s made of?It’s a pretty complex piece of kit, and one who’s wellbeing we are  becoming increasingly aware of.

Advances in neuroscience have heightened our curiosity towards the brain and it’s inner workings and in an effort to further increase awareness, neuroscientists Dr. Hana Ros and Dr. Matteo Farinella have created a unique graphic novel unravelling the mysteries of the mind.4

Beautifully bound in hardback with gold and silver embossing on the cover, Neurocomic is drawn simply in plain black and white and leads us on an amazing journey through the human brain, through forests of neurons, castles and memory caves, guided along the way by pioneers of neuroscience.1

It’s genuinely educational and the graphic novel format is perfect for this purpose using drama, humour and peril to arouse the interest of the reader and help them understand the functions of the very thing they are using to read this book and why those functions work (and sometimes don’t.)



With mental health becoming more and more at risk in modern society, it’s essential to provide a basic education in how the most important organ in our bodies works, and the beauty of Neurocomic is that it does so very simply, without resorting to jargon or condescending the reader and accomplishes more in a short graphic novel than a lot of educational textbooks have in teaching the essentials of brain function.
