"From Earth to Babylon" is a historical comic-strip biography based on the life of Gerald Bull - considered to be one of the most brilliant scientists of the twentieth century – whose work affected the course of two modern wars.
Bull’s research led him across the globe, from Canada, to the Pentagon in the US, to Barbados, South Africa and Iraq – where he developed the “Supergun” for Saddam Hussein, and ultimately to Brussels, where he was assassinated in 1990.
Much like a John LeCarre story of drama, intrigue and international politics, theories still abound as to who was responsible – ranging from Iran, the CIA, the Israeli Mossad, to the Iraqis themselves. Though his family is still searching, his assassin has never been found and the case remains open in Belgium.
