A new duo of superheroes are in town, ready to battle the forces of evil in IEEE-USA’s first comic book, “The Slate Twins: Caught in the Currents.” Jeff Knurek, Jumble artist and creator of the game Spikeball, designed the characters.

This comic book is great for all engineers, especially young future engineers, to learn about the effects engineering has on the world! Readers follow the journey of the Slate twins as they learn about their dangerous family secrets–and fight to keep them safe from evildoers! 

For National Engineers Week, a limited supply of print issues has been available at select events, such as Future City 2020, and other IEEE-USA events. You can also request print issues for your schools, libraries and classes, by contacting Georgia Stelluto at g.stelluto@ieee.org; and Marnie James at m.c.james@ieee.org.

A digital issue of the comic book will be available online for purchase on 1 March via the IEEE-USA Shop at a cost of US$2.99 for IEEE members and US$4.99 for nonmembers.
