Cool comic about Tesla:
http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla

Now to find out more about him. I knew he was an electrical genius, but I didn't realise how much.

Another (shorter) comic about Tesla.



But not nearly as inspiring as the previous.

Science Versus Luck

Not actually about Edison and Tesla, but it'd be funny if it were.

Didn't David Bowie play Tesla in The Prestige? Or was that not enough Bowie/Tesla for you?

I believe actually only 111 were counted in the US and 275 were counted worldwide:

http://www.tfcbooks.com/teslafaq/q&a_047.htm

Someone might be overly-exaggerating the data...
