I was reading through all the bioephemera archives that I missed through being hideously busy and was motivated to find something pretty and artistic connected with Synthetic biology (if my lovely gene designs weren't pretty enough...) Somewhere at the beginning of our course we were sent a link to a quick comic explaining synthetic biology, which I didn't bother with but which the engineers in our course were incredibly pleased with, and found really useful.
I went back and took a look at it last night. And actually, it's really good:The full story can be found here.
And it's actually in a nature paper! Which means it is most definitely not just a childish 'comic' and deserves to be taken seriously, like any other graphic novel.
