Webcomic description


Non-profit webcomic on (initially) health research, research on research itself (meta-research) and science more broadly. Technically also about cookies which are used as stand-ins for many things (usually research studies). Does include stuff on study design, questionable research practices, biases, meta-analysis, systematic reviews, randomized controlled trials, trials generally, ethical review boards and various other shenanigans.


These comics contain medical information. Illustrating in a humoristic way requires simplifying information and presenting it in a form that can be interpretated in many different ways; some subtle details are thus lost and errors can appear. Even if the information is correct, it might not be applicable to your specific situation or might no longer be relevant. Ideas found in the comics were not meant to substitute discussions with a health professionnal.

This makes me feel so much better abt my time as an intern…
I wish I could send a chocolate box to all those that help make this study a reality...
(Thank ya!)

Hard to do when participants need to remain anonymous though...
... Besides, they may be more interested in being heard and in concrete impact than chocolates...
