ACADEMY X

acx51304c.jpg

ACX is an online comics series drawn by Rob Wheeler and written and created by Adam Cadre. The first story, Academy X, is based on a simple premise: You know how in the comics there are a bunch of guys whose field of expertise is not "theoretical quantum optics" or "atomic scattering theory" but rather, well, Science? How it doesn't matter whether you're looking for a report on the xenobiology of the twelfth dimension or an orbital laser platform or a palmtop time machine, any one of these guys can help you out? Academy X is the story of a magnet school in Massachusetts whose mission is to provide a steady supply of these gifted people.

Bonus! Read my article, Drawing AcademyX, for all the details on what the series took on my end of things. It's like a DVD commentary track, only different!
