Tesla Comix!

Hark! Vagrant.jpg

As Germans love David Hasselhoff, so do young science nerds love Nikola Tesla. Why? My personal theory is that the alchemy involves one part "rooting for the underdog" and two parts "promise of ray guns".

Either way, it's hard to argue with a cultural trend that brings us the likes of The Five Fists of Science, wherein Tesla and Mark Twain battle equally historical villains, (Mark Twain is to journalism nerds as Nikola Tesla is to science nerds. Discuss.) and Hark! A Vagrant, a fabulous Web comic from whence we get the above teaser clip.

Via the Submitterator, this list of comics featuring Nikola Tesla will ensure you get your fix.

Thanks, Dr. Pretto!
