Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Science Comics series:

"This series―written by a handful of authors―seems determined to offer a useful introduction to anything a curious grade-school student might wonder about. The insight behind these books is a powerful one. So much information about the world around us is actually better conveyed visually, through charts, illustrations, and sequential panels, than purely using words." ―
New York Times

"Like having a Time Life Science Library in comic books. Which is awesome!" ―
Popular Science

Praise for
Science Comics: Coral Reefs:

"Author and illustrator Wicks’s experience shines through with accurate facts and appealing, colorful drawings."
School Library Journal

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Maris Wicks is a writer and illustrator of science comics, as well as a self-proclaimed gigantic nerd. She has written, drawn, and colored comics for First Second Books, New England Aquarium and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, as well as Spongebob Comics, Marvel Comics, and DC Comics. Wicks is the illustrator of The New York Times Bestselling book Primates (2013), written by Jim Ottaviani. Her first solo graphic novel, Human Body Theater (2015), is a 240-page rollicking romp through the major systems of the human body (told in comics format, of course). Her latest book is Coral Reefs (2016). Wicks has also collaborated with science communicator/comic artist and writer Rosemary Mosco to bring you Your Wild City, a weekly webcomic about urban ecology.

When she is not busy making comics, Wicks can be found prepping slides for her collection of vintage microscopes, traveling, scuba diving, hiking, and baking cookies (though never all of those things all at once). She was a program educator at the New England Aquarium for eight years, teaching kids about how awesome marine science is. Now, her work in science education and outreach continues into her comics work: Wicks was the science outreach communicator for Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution onboard the R/V Atlantis for Popping Rocks Cruise in March/April of 2016. Most recently, she was in Antarctica as a part of the USAP Artists & Writers grant, working on a graphic novel about life and science in Antarctica.
