Los Angeles-based artist Jed McGowan specializes in what might be called wordless biological/geological/astrophysics comics. A niche but a good one. His previous efforts include the Xeric-winning Lone Pine , and webcomics on Voyager’s journey through space, a volcanic eruption near Hawaii, and an eerie comic about interplanetary exploration.
He’s back with “Sun,” which explores the giant blowing bacll in the sky. Go give it a read — if you’re in the Northern hemisphere it will warm you on this winter day.
