Trinity: A Graphic History of the First Atomic Bomb

Trinity by first time graphic novelist Jonathan Fetter-Vorm visualizes the steps that led to the destruction of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. His art and pacing draws readers into the excitement of discovering the atom and its power, onward through the development of the ultimate weapon, and finally resulting in the horrific outcome of its use upon the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

There are other works about the development and aftermath of the bomb’s use in graphic novels like Fallout: J. Robert Oppenheimer, Leo Szilard, and the political science of the atomic bomb by local author Jim Ottaviani and Barefoot Gen, the heart-breaking manga about Hiroshima by Keiji Nakazawa. Yet this compact 160-page work is worth the read for the science, history, politics and people involved.

Sounds to be good. Like to read and know more about it.


I finished this recently- a very cool read! If you find atomic bomb history interesting you may also enjoy the movie White Light/Black Rain.


Great cover! Can't wait to see the illustrations on the inside.
