Awesome Possum is a natural science comic anthology collecting art from seven natural science illustrators. The anthology is a collection of short comics about the natural world. The other artists and I are all graduates of a natural science illustration program at the University of Washington. After a year's worth of hard work, we couldn't give it up. We had to keep sharing. The natural world is a wonderful place that deserves exploration. We wanted to show you some of our favorite views of the natural world.

The book is 54 pages of comics and illustrations. Seven artists contributed eleven stories: Alyssa Suzumura, Angela Boyle (that's me), EJ Landsman, Ellen Van Wyk, Hatfield Koerner, Jessica Heide, and Kami Koyamatsu. The cover is full color (with beautiful art by Marly Beyer). The interior pages (comics and illustrations) are in black and white.

The book includes the following comics:

What is it: Opossum or Possum

Secrets of Insect Diversity

The Ostrich (or is it an emu?)

Gray Fox

Narwhal: What's my tusk for?

Brooding: The Lives of Periodic Cicadas

Pitcher Plants: Lunch Time in Borneo

Bat Humor

Octopus vs. Human Eyeballs


Cute or Deadly: Tapir Edition
