UK astronaut star of a comics adaptation

Wales Online has a story about Tim Peake, a prominent UK astronaut, becoming the subject of a new graphic novel:
A British astronaut has been turned into a comic book superhero to encourage children to take an interest in science.

Tim Peake, who became the first British astronaut to walk in space, has been rebranded as Orbital in the new comic book called the STEM Squad, which highlights the work of prominent people working in science, technology, engineering and maths.

He said: “I’m so excited to have been invited to join the STEM Squad; I’ve always loved superheroes but never imagined I could get to become one someday, let alone Orbital, helping to defeat elemental climate change monsters.”

[...] Comic book artists Andy Lanning and Ant Williams, who have worked on comics featuring the likes of Captain America and The Hulk, have been brought in to bring the project to life.
Engineering & Technology also has the story. It sounds interesting, and could certainly be a good way to promote the topic of science for children.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
