natural science comic anthology
Released November 2018
The Story

The brainchild of Angela Boyle, Awesome 'Possum is a black-and-white comic anthology with four volumes so far. The stories range from autobiographical experiences with nature to an overview of a specific species to descriptions of scientific studies. The stories showcase what the individual creators love about the natural world.

Angela Boyle edits and designs Awesome 'Possum. She is a cartoonist with an MFA from The Center for Cartoon Studies and a natural science illustrator. It simply makes sense for her to combine these two passions.

Volume 4


Awesome 'Possum Volume 4 is a book that wants to entertain and inspire, but the presence of this bibliography and an index show that it’s equally willing to make it easier to learn more about the subject matter.
