If You Wish to Make Evolution Cake From Scratch, You Must First Invent the Universe

Almost Totally Excellent

Oxford’s geology department’s cake depicting Earth’s entire geologic time spiral presumably tastes better than the rock layers it represents, and is somewhat more fresh than the time periods it showcases.

At least, we hope so, because we’d really like a slice of the Precambrian period, if you please.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
