What is Human Body Theater: A Non-Fiction Revue?




Human Body Theater: A Non-Fiction Revue is a comic book that combines science, art, and humor to educate and entertain you about the human body. It is divided into 11 chapters, each focusing on a different system or aspect of the human body. The chapters are:


  • The Skeletal System: Learn about the bones, joints, cartilage, and ligaments that support and protect your body.



  • The Muscular System: Learn about the muscles, tendons, and fascia that move and shape your body.



  • The Respiratory System: Learn about the lungs, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli, and diaphragm that help you breathe.



  • The Cardiovascular System: Learn about the heart, blood vessels, blood cells, and plasma that circulate oxygen and nutrients throughout your body.



  • The Immune System: Learn about the white blood cells, antibodies, lymph nodes, spleen, thymus, and bone marrow that fight off infections and diseases.



  • The Digestive System: Learn about the mouth, teeth, tongue, salivary glands, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and appendix that help you digest food and absorb nutrients.



  • The Excretory System: Learn about the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, skin, sweat glands, lungs, and liver that help you eliminate waste products from your body.



  • The Endocrine System: Learn about the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries, testes, pineal gland, and hypothalamus that secrete hormones that regulate your growth, metabolism, mood, reproduction, and more.



The Nervous System: Learn about the brain, spinal cord,


The Nervous System: Learn about the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and sensory organs that help you sense, process, and respond to information from your environment and your body.




The nervous system is the control center of your body. It consists of two main parts: the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS).


The CNS includes the brain and the spinal cord. The brain is the largest and most complex organ in your body. It has three main parts: the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brainstem. The cerebrum is responsible for higher cognitive functions, such as thinking, learning, memory, language, and emotions. The cerebellum is responsible for coordinating movement, balance, and posture. The brainstem is responsible for regulating vital functions, such as breathing, heartbeat, blood pressure, and digestion.


The spinal cord is a long bundle of nerves that runs from the base of your skull to your lower back. It connects the brain to the rest of your body. It also acts as a relay station for sensory and motor signals between the brain and the PNS.


The PNS includes all the nerves that branch out from the spinal cord to the rest of your body. It has two main subdivisions: the somatic nervous system (SNS) and the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The SNS controls voluntary movements and sensations, such as moving your muscles and feeling pain or touch. The ANS controls involuntary functions and responses, such as sweating, blushing, or digesting food.


The PNS also includes the sensory organs that help you perceive the world around you. These include the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and skin. Each sensory organ contains specialized cells called receptors that detect different types of stimuli, such as light, sound, smell, taste, or pressure. The receptors then send signals to the brain via the nerves for interpretation.


The Reproductive System: Learn about the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, vagina, testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate gland, urethra,


The Reproductive System: Learn about the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, vagina, testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate gland, urethra, penis, and scrotum that help you produce and deliver gametes and hormones for sexual reproduction.




The reproductive system is the system that allows you to create new life. It consists of two main parts: the female reproductive system and the male reproductive system.


The female reproductive system includes the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, and vagina. The ovaries are the organs that produce eggs (or ova), which are the female gametes or sex cells. The ovaries also secrete estrogen and progesterone, which are the female sex hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. The fallopian tubes are the tubes that connect the ovaries to the uterus. They are the sites where fertilization occurs if a sperm meets an egg. The uterus is the organ that houses and nourishes the developing fetus during pregnancy. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus that opens into the vagina. It dilates during labor to allow the baby to pass through. The vagina is the muscular canal that connects the cervix to the outside of the body. It serves as the birth canal and the organ for sexual intercourse.


The male reproductive system includes the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate gland, urethra, penis, and scrotum. The testes are the organs that produce sperm, which are the male gametes or sex cells. The testes also secrete testosterone, which is the male sex hormone that regulates sperm production and secondary sex characteristics. The epididymis is a coiled tube that stores and matures sperm. The vas deferens is a duct that transports sperm from the epididymis to the urethra. The seminal vesicles and the prostate gland are glands that secrete fluids that nourish and protect sperm. These fluids form semen, which is the fluid that carries sperm out of the body during ejaculation. The urethra is a tube that runs through the penis and carries urine and semen out of the body. The penis is the organ for sexual intercourse and urination. It has erectile tissue that fills with blood during sexual arousal and erection. The scrotum is a sac of skin that hangs behind the penis and contains the testes. It helps regulate the temperature of the testes by moving closer or farther away from the body.


The Integumentary System: Learn about the skin, hair, nails, and glands that help you protect and regulate your body.




The integumentary system is the system that covers and protects your body. It consists of the skin and its appendages, such as hair, nails, and glands.


The skin is the largest and most visible organ of your body. It has three main layers: the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis. The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin that provides a waterproof barrier and creates your skin tone. It also contains cells that produce melanin, which is the pigment that gives your skin color and protects you from ultraviolet rays. The dermis is the middle layer of the skin that provides strength and elasticity. It also contains blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles, sweat glands, and sebaceous glands. The hypodermis is the innermost layer of the skin that provides insulation and cushioning. It also contains fat cells and connective tissue.


The hair is a filamentous structure that grows from the hair follicles in the dermis. It helps you sense touch and regulate temperature. It also reflects your genetic makeup and influences your appearance. The nails are hard plates that grow from the nail beds in the epidermis. They help you protect and manipulate your fingers and toes. They also indicate your health status and hygiene habits. The glands are structures that secrete substances onto or into the skin. They include sweat glands, sebaceous glands, mammary glands, and ceruminous glands. They help you regulate temperature, lubricate and moisturize your skin, produce milk for breastfeeding, and protect your ears from infection.


The Lymphatic System: Learn about the lymph nodes, lymph vessels, lymph fluid, tonsils, adenoids, thymus, and spleen that help you transport and filter lymph and fight off infections.




The lymphatic system is the system that helps you maintain fluid balance and immunity in your body. It consists of the lymph nodes, lymph vessels, lymph fluid, tonsils, adenoids, thymus, and spleen.


The lymph nodes are small bean-shaped structures that are located along the lymph vessels. They act as filters that trap and destroy foreign particles, such as bacteria, viruses, or cancer cells. They also produce white blood cells called lymphocytes that fight off infections. The lymph vessels are thin tubes that carry lymph fluid throughout your body. Lymph fluid is a clear liquid that contains water, proteins, salts, waste products,

They also produce white blood cells called lymphocytes that fight off infections. The lymph vessels are thin tubes that carry lymph fluid throughout your body. Lymph fluid is a clear liquid that contains water, proteins, salts, waste products, and immune cells. It drains from the spaces between your cells and returns to your bloodstream through the lymph vessels. The tonsils and adenoids are masses of lymphoid tissue that are located at the back of your throat and nose. They help you defend against respiratory infections by producing antibodies and trapping pathogens. The thymus is a gland that is located behind your sternum. It helps you develop immunity by producing and maturing a type of lymphocyte called T cells. The spleen is an organ that is located under your left rib cage. It helps you filter blood by removing old or damaged red blood cells and platelets. It also helps you fight infections by producing and storing lymphocytes and antibodies.


The Urinary System: Learn about the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra that help you filter and excrete urine.




The urinary system is the system that helps you remove waste products and excess fluids from your body. It consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra.


The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs that are located on either side of your spine. They act as filters that remove waste products and excess fluids from your blood and produce urine. They also regulate your blood pressure, pH, electrolyte balance, and red blood cell production. The ureters are two tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder. They transport urine from the kidneys to the bladder by using peristalsis or wave-like contractions. The bladder is a muscular sac that is located in your lower abdomen. It stores urine until you are ready to urinate. It can hold up to 500 ml of urine at a time. The urethra is a tube that connects the bladder to the outside of your body. It carries urine out of your body during urination. It has two sphincters or valves that control the flow of urine: an internal sphincter that is involuntary and an external sphincter that is voluntary.
