Finally, a graphic novel about manufacturing! @ LA Times…

As any fanboy will tell you, there are graphic novels about everything. The Bible. Crime fighters that dress like bats. Mosquito-abating teenagers.

Now, for the fanboy who loves manufacturing, comes “Tinkerers: An Original Tale of the Near Future” by David Brin. Brin, the prolific author of such books as “Startide Rising,” “The Life Eaters” and “The Transparent Society: Will Technology Make Us Choose Between Privacy and Freedom?” has taken on the manufacturing demise in America in a 24-page tome.

The book begins: “Imagine a nation that has lost its ability and desire to make things….” Tinkerers is set in 2024, a town where high school graduates go into service jobs and buy brand names from overseas. Our hero, who looks a little like Fabio, but with shorter hair, is one of the few handy folks left in town.When disaster strikes, he must use his skills to save lives.
