trying to write science stuff for kids and things here. Doing it in comic format seemed like a good idea at the time and now we're too far down the road for me to scream "this is a hell of a lot of drawing!"
I am actually an electron microscopist and the comics are to accompany a project where we get ( UK ) schools sending in water samples that we trap the viruses from, take pictures and upload to Zooniverse for phase 2.
Current goals - learn to draw faces! - Professor Scribble can't only be known from the back of her head, clean the water cooler, draw more squid.
I think you have a great idea. Comics are very underrated when it comes to being used for educational purposes. They are visual with just the right amount of writing. I think making an educational comic is a beautiful idea.
