Scientists highlighted include Elisabeth Blackburn, JoGayle Howard, Nan Hauser, Elisabeth Kalko, Gudrun Pfleuger.  You have the option to download the comics or read them right in your browser.

The Smithsonian is also running ads for the site on websites such as Facebook.  There hasn’t been a day I haven’t seen the ad at least once.  Overall, a great use of comic books and a website.
