Entomology has been a part of my life since I was a very small child, in fact I can not remember a time where I was not interested in both art and entomology! I started coming up with these comics as a blend of the two, and also to enter into the SciComm world. I want to share my knowledge of the insect world with others in a fun and enjoyable way! All of these comics have basis in real life, which is part of the fun of them, of course they also have a good deal of dark humor! Check out the Facebook Page for these comics and more!

Welcome to Japan!

Entomological basis for the comic: Japan is home to a subspecies of the Asian giant hornet: Vespa mandarinia japonica. This species is known be a extremely effective predator of honeybees. Usually a scout is sent to find a hive and mark it with scent, then they entire nest of V. m. japonica goes and kills the entire hive, usually to take the bee larvae back to their own larvae as food. While native Japanese bees have figured out defenses for this, Apis mellifera has not!
