Dr. Stone by Riichiro Inagaki and Boichi. Viz Media. This continuing Manga series if full of engaging science and post-apocalyptic imagery. Two high school students set off to restart civilization where everyone has been turned to stone - using science.

This is a way to create a classroom library and to open the boundaries of science - it really is everything.
