The First Comic for Nanoheads Now on NanoApex
As our story begins, a group of highly advanced nanobots, built for
hazardous duty and dubbed “Grey Goos,” have escaped from the National Transistor
Assembly Labs. These little critters, each with a different technical specialty and a
distinct personality, look rather like drops of soft ice cream in hiking boots. They end up
in New York City, living in a loft with Dorothea (Dot) Kalm and Globo Bill, a couple of
“constructs” who also have escaped from the same lab. Meanwhile, scientists at the lab
have created a nanocop they’ve named Blue Goo, whose job is to round up the wayward
Grey Goos and return them to the lab.
What happens when you have a bunch of incredibly sophisticated and unbelievably tiny nano-personalities with names like Azztech, Dr. Strings, Tewah and MeOwl running around the world trying to do good—all the while pursued by Blue Goo and his vicious canine sidekick Neuro? You have a lot of fun, that’s what.
“I’m excited about nanotechnology and where it’s all headed, but it can sometimes feel intimidating,” said Grey Goos creator Joel Fisher. “We wanted to put a friendly face on the technology—humanize it, give people a chuckle. But even though the characters and the plots appear to be pretty lightweight, readers will find many political and spiritual nuances in the mix—so there’s more going on than first meets the eye.”
The strip is currently being offered exclusively by NanoApex, one of the Internet’s leading resources for information about nanotechnology. NanoApex offers general science and business content, including extensively linked databases; however, the company’s president, Arya Kumar, thinks it’s important to lighten things up a bit for his audience. “Ultimately, we want the color, personalities and uniqueness of the comic strip to capture people’s hearts,” he said.
