As I wrote on Scott Aaronson's blog last December:

Logicomix was very good, and its focus on Russell was the right choice 
 from a dramatic point of view, but it gives an overly pessimistic view 
because it slights the key work of Zermelo and Tarski, as well as 
Godel’s Completeness theorem, leaving the impression that the 
foundations of mathematics are in bad shape when they are largely a 
success story.

For FOMers who are not already aware of it, Doxiadis and Papadimitriou
came out with a book called "Logicomix" last year....
