At the Science Online conference earlier this month I was inspired by the multitude of ways that people are communicating science online through ebooks, short articles, videos, games, tweets, and, yes - comics!

With a little added inspiration from recent snowstorms and a question from a child about snowflakes, I made the comic below.
