“The most surprising thing about Stephen Hawking is his razor wire wit that is sometimes withering and other times matched with a puckish sense of humor. He maintains a child’s delight in discovery and credits his disability for allowing him to focus his mind. Our favorite quote from Hawking: ‘I have noticed that even people who claim everything is predetermined and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road,'” Said writers Michael Lent and Brian McCarthy
“I learned a lot from reading the script and doing the research for the issue. The very concept of making an engaging comic book where the protagonist is essentially immobile is a pretty tall order, but I think the key to us keeping it exciting was being able to get inside his mind (one of the greatest of our time) and show some of his most abstract concepts in a visual and dynamic way. Additionally, we got several chances to tip our hat to many famous artistic icons of pop culture, as well as famous people that he’s met, taken inspiration from or even inspired himself. He truly is a living legend, and I was honored to be able to illustrate his life in comic book form,” said artist Zach Bassett.
