"We need books like Goodbye God? to help expose both religious and scientific nonsense that can get in the way of sound thinking and to help produce a healthier and happier world with public policies that properly address the challenges of the 21st century" -Professor Lawrence M Krauss, author of A Universe from Nothing; "A unique and innovative primer on Humanism, the importance of science and the evolution vs creationism debate. This illustrated guide deserves to reach a wide audience" -Richy Thompson, British Humanist Association; "A superbly even-handed and open-minded graphic narrative discourse... gripping and genuinely revelatory reading" -Comicsreview.co.uk; "The graphic novel format is ideal for the confused adolescent or adult averse to tedious "learned" polemic, with the inimitable Hunt Emerson's tableaux and strips complementing the narrative with zest and a measured comic sense" -Morning Star.
