Back in January I rocked the first Comic Science
In July I posted this WIRED
article ... "How Comics Can Save Us From Scientific Ignorance"
Today, I'm adding to the comic science resources. I was reading a Discover Magazine
the other day and found out that comic artist Peter Bagge
started a monthly "History of Science" feature last February!
does not publish the strips on the regular site so scoured the e-Libraries of my universities looking for the strips. After many searches, I found they are not easily available as PDFs. I was able to snip one clean image (below - for educational use only) as a sample. From there I gave everyone "preview" links via cloverleaf.com with a short blurb explaining each story.
In the meantime...

3 would rock earth science
