Cartoon Abstracts

The Taylor & Francis Group thought it might be easier, or at least more fun, to read scientific abstracts as comics. They are testing this theory with a series of Cartoon Abstracts, where real studies are summarized in public service-style comic pages. They are enlargeable at the link.

Shown here is an illustrated abstract for the 2014 paper “Perturbations in Epidemiological Models: When zombies attack, we can survive!” You can read the original paper in this pdf.

Oh yeah, they take submissions, in case you want to get your abstract illustrated. -via Metafilter

This is such a great idea! Seems like the next step from infographics. I wonder how the first paper were picked? Would more complicated papers have greater problems in making a comic out of them? Sounds intriguing.

It's good to know that biomathematics shows that we can survive (as a species) a zombie outbreak!
Of course, we're doomed. Congress will never allocate money toward zombie eradication!
