Taking a break!

Hey folks! After publishing science comics for 126 weeks straight, I’m going to take a short break from drawing new weekly comics. But fear not, you can revisit the entire collection to feed your invertebrate enthusiasm. interviews with invertebrates originally grew out of a class project I did for a zooplankton ecology course in 2016. Check out the original comic…we’ve come a long way, haven’t we?

Today marks my 125th week drawing comics! This week I learned about blanket octopuses and they are pretty dang cool looking.  While they may look just like “blankets” they are anything but. Learn more about the blanket octopus in today’s comic: sham sham

I just finished up the first week of 2020 at the annual Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology meeting where I learned about some pretty cool invertebrates. Graduate student, Sebastian Echeverri, University of Pittsburgh, studies mating dances of the jumping spider Habronattus pyrrithrix. Add some new moves to your dance repertoire in this week’s comic: date dance.

Texas titan

Happy New Years folks! Later this week I’m heading off to Austin, Texas for the annual Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology meeting so today I’m releasing another comic in my “United States of Invertebrates” series. Since it’ll be my first time to the Lone Star State, I did a little research on the invertebrates that Texans are particularly fond of. In today’s comic: Texas titan, meet the Lightning Whelk, the official state shell of Texas!
