The Scientists

This graphic novel is a real inspiration. Writer artist Geoff Weber began this story with his friend Trent Beckett in 2005, developing a classic 80’s style kid’s adventure story—Stranger Things way before there was a Stranger Things. Trent died in 2007 but Geoff kept the torch burning, continuing to write, draw and self publish the Scientists as a four-part comics series. He finally completed the project with a hard cover collection in the summer of 2020. I’m holding it my hands, it is a great package and a fun all-ages read. Most of my comic books are on a basement shelf but I keep this book at my desk next to Save the Cat and my other “how to” books. If I hit a rough patch in my comics projects I just need to look at the Scientists to remember that all that matters is to keep moving and finish the thing.
