The future graphic textbook: “Quantum Computing for Beginners”

by Paul Pham

Now that the class is over, you may have noticed that I never actually finished my story of how Richard Feynman and Alan Turing meet, and together with your help defeat the Nazis using quantum computing. Fret not, I still plan to complete this project, but after I finish my thesis and graduate.

I would like to combine elements of a graphic novel with a traditional textbook, inspired by things like Logicomix, the Feynman graphic novel, Larry Gonick’s cartoon guides, Scott McCloud’s comic book about comics. Maybe I’ll do a kickstarter, maybe I’ll self-publish.
