4. Our people

Applied Comics Etc was founded by Lydia Wysocki, building on the Newcastle Science Comics project she led with a team of seven editors.  We continue to work as a team.

Here’s a list of our talks and articles about comics.

Applied Comics Etc. uses its local, national, and international networks of comics creators to bring together the right artist, writer, and editor for each project.  This offers the flexibility to find a voice and art style that works for what you want to communicate: the only ‘house style’ is awesome comics. The team for each project is credited within that project’s outputs.
