we think of comic books our minds usually jump to stories of myth and fiction - such as the famous superhero comics, Spider-Man and Super-Man.

Andy Cruz shows that we don’t need to write purely fictional stories for comic books to be captivatin­g. This format can be education, as demonstrat­ed with Andy’s paleoart project Dinosaurco­mics - shared graphicall­y on Instagram and Twitter.

Andy’s designs have led to a successful Kickstarte­r campaign for unique dinosaur pins based on Cretaceous species from the geological Hell Creek formation. We speak with Andy about the creative process behind Dinosaurco­mics.
