Winner of the Eisner Award for Best Graphic Album

472 page hardcover in full color! A New York Times Bestseller, RASL is Jeff Smith's follow up to his epic fantasy BONE. A tightly wound mixture of science fiction, noir and conspiracy theories, RASL is a gritty, hard-boiled tale of an inter-dimensional art thief caught between dark government forces and the mysterious powers of the universe itself.

When Rasl, a thief and ex-military engineer, discovers the lost journals of Nikola Tesla, he bridges the gap between modern physics and history's most notorious scientist. But his breakthrough comes at a great personal price. In this twisting tale of intrigue and betrayal, Rasl finds himself in possession of humankind's deepest, most dangerous secret.

Originally serialized in black & white comic books and graphic novels, the award winning completed novel is embellished with muted, smoky color by Steve Hamaker and Jeff Smith. Praised by The Village Voice, USA Today, NPR, Physics Today, Booklist, The Onion/AV Club, Paste, Publishers Weekly and more.

The science is not true in any way but it is still a great read.

A great read.
The storytelling is interesting and exciting.
The artwork is great.
I've heard others comment on the poor anatomy representation, I didn't find it an issue - I read comic books with anthropomorphic characters just fine.
That it's founded on some hard science it a big plus in my book.

Jeff Smith does it again. His visual storytelling paired with his creative foresight allow for darkly tantalizing tales like RASL. Romance and action are wrapped in scifi that's bound to spark creative interest for young and old readers.
