DC Comics Team’s Up With ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Star Mayim Bialik For New Middle Grade ‘Flash Facts’

by Oliver MacNamee

DC Comics have tapped up actress Mayim Bialik, who played Amy Farah Fowler in the hit comedy The Big Bang Theory, and who is a Phd neuroscientist herself. So, the perfect celebrity to help put together a new middle grade (ages 8 – 12 years old) graphic novel looking at the world of science through the eyes of The Flash. A hero who is no stranger to science himself.

Debuting February 2021, this new graphic novel, Flash Facts, aligns with Next Generation Science Standards, providing a helpful bridge between the S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) lessons taught inside the classroom and how these principles affect our everyday lives. And, it looks like it’ll be a fun read too, as you’ll pick up from these interior unlettered pages released by DC to accompany this announcement, with art by Dustin Hansen.

Have you ever wondered what’s at the bottom of the sea? Why polar ice melts? Or which tools forensic scientists use to solve a crime?

Well, look no further! Everyone’s favorite Scarlet Speedster is here to answer all your burning questions! Barry Allen, with the help of some of his close friends, will take readers on an exciting journey that examines everything from the vast expanse of our galaxy to the smallest living organism known to exist.   

Curated by award-winning actress and author Mayim Bialik, PhD, and featuring stories created by an all-star cast of writers and illustrators, this anthology aligns with Next Generation Science Standards and provides a helpful bridge between the lessons taught inside the classroom and our everyday lives.
