Changes in the blog and The Umbrella Academy, Dark Horse Motion Comics

First off, now that the school year has started, I’m eliminating the required weekend posts–I may still post on topics like that sporadically, but I’ll let it develop naturally. Some of those posts were really easy for me to write (interestingly, those tended to be the longer ones) but many of them were more of a struggle. I should really use that time to read papers.

Alternatively, I’m thinking of doing a few posts on the most basic of the basics in terms of being in the field of biology. Things researchers usually take for granted, but things that non-scientists might have less exposure to. Like maybe how research results and data are distributed to the scientific community.

Any interest in that? Or any questions? Can’t promise to answer all of them, but I’ll try.

Anyway, onto the post:

Dark Horse has some motion comics showing on Geek and Sundry’s YouTube channel.

So this is pretty cool; it’s comic book art, but with a bit of motion thrown in, and shot in a video with voice acting. I think it’s great that Dark Horse is airing some of these on YouTube, too.

    Yes! The more info laypeople have about how science actually works, the better.

    • Seconding this! So much! Especially since I find science interesting, but usually get lost within a few chapters of a textbook or a few minutes of a lecture. Biology would be especially awesome.

    Yes yes yes to talking about knowledge production in your field! I may not know much about biology, but i am really interested in how communication happens, especially in scholarly communities 🙂
