my friend challenged me to make a comics that involved inventors and their inventions, so I chose Tesla.
Nikola Tesla was a genius ahead of his time, but he gained this recognition just during our last decade. His contribution to electric engineering is astonishing. Tesla is claimed to be a “True father of the electric age”. And there are many inventions that prove his title: he constructed phosphorescent lighting (a precursor to fluorescent lamps), the Tesla coil, he even produced artificial lightning near his laboratory in Colorado Springs. In his later years, Nikola Tesla suffered from obsessive - compulsive disorder. One of his signs of illness was that he could not bear to touch hair. My comic strip shows how Tesla’s work could have affected his illness.
