Cindermain, you have made me the happiest guy in the world. I make science comics, and have quite a few scripted.

Now, to just find an artist. Let me look around.

Comics? Science? What?!

But I'm for more girls into comics. Not so much into science myself though.

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
