While the review is designed to poke the Logicomix audience with a sharp stick in their collective self-righteousness, there’s no merit in my viewpoint if its wound up in sounding like a misogynist jerk.
But as a story of Russell’s search for order against the winds of chaos, I found the book a compelling excursion. Of course, he failed.

Certain details are preserved and recalled well where these are relevant, but the strength of Logicomix is that the finer points of logic interweave but never interrupt the drama of human failings and personal tragedy and the glimmer through all of it, of hope for Russell, the quest is as much for this balance as for the truth that might liberate him from his foundational anxieties.
Every cool thing that fres book tries to do is pointed out in the “meta” modern-day sections with the creators discussing the work. But h An innovative, dramatic graphic novel about the treacherous pursuit of the foundations of mathematics.
