Richard Worth Comic writer, Journalist and Content Creator

ABOUT

Our goal was to create a series of comics that promoted sceptical thinking. We did this through a collaboration with Professor Richard Wiseman. Using his research and my storytelling skills, we created an anthology series that looks at the history of magic, science and the supernatural, using real-life events and science to explain theories in an entertaining way.

One of the biggest challenges was incorporating interactive elements that would demonstrate the principles we were showing. We didn't want the stories to feel like lectures, they should be enjoyable anecdotes, so the interactivity needed be immersing and a consistent part of the storytelling.

The series has been well received and we've been able to make it self sufficient. Our hope is that when the series is complete, we can transform it into a collection.
