Sydney Padua's delight-filled comic is one of the best comics on computing and mathematics. She transforms one of the most powerful scientific collaborations into an entertaining series of adventures. It's filled with deviation, anachronisms and sketch portrayals of famous Victorians, all divided through with an exuberant goofiness. It's also the modern world through a Padua prism, with jokes about Twitter and Venn diagrams sprinkled into the dialogue.
To begin with, Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace are Victorian London's most enthusiastic duo.
