For most of 2017 I have been collecting any article on science comics that I could find and reading extensively about related fields of research such as visual communication, narratives and metaphors. Now I have tried to put it all back together into this long essay for the Journal of Science Communication.
There are no comics in it (it was a difficult but deliberate choice) just a lot of references, so it's not exactly a fun read. However, if you are interested in this field and you want a thorough introduction I hope this will be of some help.
Now it's time to test some these ideas!
