How a full-time biology professor managed to write and illustrate a 300 page comic book in his spare time is beyond me, but we've certainly benefited from his professional expertise; Last of the Sandwalkers is a graphic adventure story that is also a fascinating introductions to lesser known beetles, worms, spiders, and other insects. Well-researched footnotes and scientific nomenclature make this a great educational read for any age, and Hosler strikes the perfect balance between the two worlds of science and entertainment without leaning too heavily in either field. I'm astounded that such a talented artist can be such a thorough biologist, and vice versa!
