I padroni del caos (2003)
A. Russo (writer) / Esposito Brothers (artists)

An Italian comic book whose title translates as "Masters of Chaos".

Contributed by Marco Abate

Not much mathematics in here, but several of the characters are mathematicians. They've better not talk about mathematics (the writer clearly didn't know what he was writing about), but at least the characters are not too much stereotypical.

Published in Martin Mystere 255, Sergio Bonelli Editore, Milano, 2003, 94 pp.

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks! -Alex
