In 2015 Harvard University published the first dissertation entirely written as a comic. Sousanis’s book Unflattening challenged how we create and communicate knowledge. Is there any benefit in science comics?
What we could say with a science comic in a better way than in a traditional way? What do we know about using comics in the classroom? I made an experiment. I transformed my own PhD thesis on Innovation into a comic.
