Comic Review: Flash Facts

Flash Facts by Mayim Bialik

Flash Facts
by Mayim Bialik (Goodreads Author)
3 out of 5 stars

The Flash and other superheroes answer questions about scientific subjects while fighting off supervillains and doing good. They explore atoms, energy, virtual reality technology, DNA, the solar system, and even the depths of the ocean.

One thing that I really hate in scientific books is when a scientific THEORY is presented as if it were a fact. This is so unethical, and it would be so easy to correct. If only the text said, “One theory about this subject is … etc.” But they don’t say that. They write as if the details of climate change, renewable energy sources (like solar panels and wind turbines), and the age of the universe are established empirical facts that have been tested and proven. But they’re not.

And it is dishonest to present a theory and pretend that it is a fact. It makes me not trust anything else that the book says. If they are misrepresenting one theory, they might be doing it all over the place. How can I trust what is written in this book if they aren’t careful to present the information in the correct way? It’s terrible that they are misleading children!

Each chapter showcases a different superhero as they use science on their adventures. Green Lantern talks about renewable energy. The Flash explains forensic science. Poison Ivy talks about DNA in plants and animals and humans. Supergirl takes us on a tour of the solar system. I love the humor and adventure that is blended in with the scientific facts!

Each chapter has a different unique art style and supporting characters. The colors are bright and attractive, and each panel has energy and fun!
