Genius by Steven T. Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen
Ted found school really boring and the teachers could tell him little that got him excited. He was always too busy doing something else too, much to the frustration of his teachers. Ted is gifted, brilliant. So brilliant even that he is able to skip a couple of classes. You could say that mentally he is a couple of years ahead of his peers, but physically though, he is a few years behind his classmates. Ted discovers there is a chasm between knowledge and knowing.
After this introduction Steven T. Seagle and Teddy Kristiansen compare Ted's intellect to that of Albert Einstein after which they take us forward to present time, a time where Ted is an adult, with a wife and two children. He has a 'normal' son and a daughter that might even be more gifted or brilliant than he is himself. Ted's wife's father Francis lives with the family and actually Ted and him do not really understand each other well and maybe do not even seem to want to.
So what's the big secret and how big can it be? Will this help Ted retain his job at his employer? And could his sick wife benefit from this secret, and in what way? If these are the sort of questions you want to ask yourself when reading a graphic novel, look no further than Genius!
