Following the popularity of the 2012 film by the same name, award winning authors Jim Ottaviani and Leland Purvis present a historically accurate graphic novel biography of English mathematician and scientist Alan Turing inThe Imitation Game.
Credited with many of the foundational principles of contemporary computer science, Turing has left a legacy that includes his groundbreaking work on the fundamentals of cryptography, artificial intelligence, and code breaking. His efforts led to the cracking of the German Enigma code during World War II, saving countless lives and driving the Allied defeat of the Nazis. While Turing’s professional successes still follow him long after his death, the personal story of his life and open homosexuality in post-war Europe continue to fascinate audiences today.
Ottaviani and Purvis provide a detailed and factual account of Turing’s life—as an unconventional genius cruelly chastised for his openly gay lifestyle, and whose innovative work and contributions as a theoretician still fuel the computing and communication systems that define our modern world.
Any computer science buffs, comics fans, and history aficionados will be captivated by this riveting and tragic story of one of the 20th century’s most unsung heroes.
