Science and art coming together to create beautiful and practical things.
If this has inspired you at all, turns out Robert J. Lang has a YouTube channel with talks and tutorials. As soon as I have spare time again, I’m going to try my hand at this. I have a feeling it’ll be very zen.

If you’re just getting started with comics (or even a long time fan), this is a great place to learn more. From here you’ll discover not only these characters but others as well. (and yes, my favorite character, Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, is not represented but that’s okay. I’m excited to discover new reads).
