Abstract

Science comic strips entitled Dr. Scifun were planned to promote science jobs and studies among professionals
(scientists, graduate and undergraduate students) and children. To this end, the authors collected intriguing
science stories as the basis of scenarios, and drew four-cut comic strips, first on paper and subsequently as
computer files. Eighty three episodes of the cartoons in English are available on the homepage (anatomy.co.kr).
The comics have been displayed in the on-line science magazine and the science museum in Korea. The
reception has been positive. The comic strips help inform graduate students and young scientists of the
appropriate philosophy for their devotion to science. As well the comics demonstrate the fascinating and
meaningful activities of scientists to juveniles. It is anticipated that competition between comics created by
different scientists will improve the quality of the publications, benefiting readers worldwide.
