I've had a thought in the back of my mind that popped up again when I reread the Sam&Max webcomic. I looked at Steve Purcell's Wikipedia entry and it said he attended the California College of Arts and Crafts. In reading his webcomics and even vaguely remembering lines from Hit the Road (I've not read any of his print comics. :o ), I would have guessed he had some sort of medical or scientific background.
How many comic writers use medulla oblongata, talk about neurons and think of using ethylene glycol e.g.? :eek: I'm curious about the infusion of science into his comics and if anyone knows what inspired/inspires him to use it. I love it by the way. :)
If this question's been asked before, sorry. I couldn't find anything.
