We’re producing a science comic book as part of the British Science Festival in September 2013 in Newcastle.

The comic will use super awesome EPIC THEMES to talk with children age 8-13 about science: yes, real university research, in comic book form.

Please see the Expression of Interest form for more information.  This form, and a little more information about the project, is online  at the Newcastle Science Comic blog.   If you would like to get involved, all you need to do at this stage is complete the form and return it to

We are hosting a SUPER MASH-UP event at Tyneside Cinema on 16th January 2013, 5:30-7pm to get scientists talking with artists and writers, to match up potential collaborators, and brainstorm for ideas. A full brief will be made available to scientists and comic artists/writers as the project develops.   Please fill in this online booking form for the SUPER MASH-UP event so we know how many superhero costumes (optional) and refreshments (compulsory) to order.

Please note that Lydia and Paul work at Newcastle University and are taking part in this project outside their day jobs.  This may mean there are slight delays in responding to emails about this project so it does not interfere with their day jobs.
