From the lab to the drawing room, a science communication comic:
A science communication comic implies, for the authors, to be able to keep a balance between trustworthiness and creativity. In collaboration with ERCcOMICS we are defying this challenge with science communication comics. We create beautiful comics collaborating with professional artists and top-notch scientists. Check the website, as there are 16 webcomic coming…
Regarding Max Order: I’ve drawn it myself when I was working for the ERC project Flow Machines. The strategy to communicate science behind Flow Machines was quite peculiar. With my colleague Massimo Colella, François Pachet and Pierre Roy we tried to build up a deep and interesting story. At the same time, we stayed as much as faithful to the original research.
We identified a few cornerstone issues from Flow Machines, and transform them into characters. But characters need a setting, a story and a personality. So we tried to develop all of these while staying faithful to the original research.
