Comics Alternative Kickstarter: Ada’s Adventures in Science

It’s Poetry in Motion

This week Derek talks with Edward Gomez and Laura Sorvala about their Kickstarter campaign Ada’s Adventures in Science. This project began as a three-comic-book series, starting with the idea, “There’s no such thing as a stupid question.” The ultimate goal of this Kickstarter is not only to excite children about science, but to empower them to pursue it. Edward and Laura’s protagonist Ada is a believable, relatable character pursuing her interests in science. She functions as both as a role model and as a conduit for the reader.

What is so significant about this Kickstarter campaign is that not only will you be able to get the collected three-issue Ada’s Adventures in Science series in one nice volume, but by backing this project you’ll be providing students around the world with copies of the comic books and encouraging them to pursue their own passions in science.

So help promote this educational tool, and read a great adventure, by backing this Kickstarter!

About Derek Royal

The Comics Alternative is a weekly podcast focused on the world of alternative, independent, and primarily non-superhero comics. (There’s nothing wrong with the superhero genre…we just want to do something different.) New shows become available every Wednesday…much like the comic books you get. Episodes feature reviews of graphic novels and current ongoing series, discussions of upcoming comics, examinations of collected editions, in-depth analyses of a variety of comics texts, spotlights on various creators and their oeuvre, roundtable discussions with prominent critics and scholars in the field, and interviews with the artists and writers who make all of this possible. Along the way, Andy and Derek will talk about the various books that they are reading; the many pop cultural references that, for better or worse, inform their lives; and the unpredictable (and inexplicable) weirdness that seems to creep into each episode. In essence,The Comics Alternative podcast is brilliantly simple: Two guys with PhDs talking about comics.
