The action in upcoming comic book The Inventor is fueled by the fascinating life and amazing inventions of Nikola Tesla, the 19th-century physicist and electrical engineer who helped create our 21st-century future before dying penniless.
“Tesla’s true story is more surreal than any fictional account I’ve seen of him,” said writer Rave Mehta, whose Tesla biocomic, previewed in the gallery above, debuts at publisher Arcana’s booth this week at Comic-Con International. “The Inventor: The Story of Tesla is based on Tesla’s journey, from his epic birth in a lightning storm to his arrival in America, where his greatest mentor, Thomas Edison, turns into his greatest adversary and starts the War of Currents.”
