Sometimes, it’s good to remember all the tiny wonders of physics and motion that we could not actually observe until the invention of the camera. Like, you know, the leg placement of a horse while galloping, the shape of water droplets, or a slinky’s ability to disturbingly flaunt gravity in a way that makes us feel like medieval pesants.

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.
