Hilarious science comics

The phrase, “a picture tells a thousand words” is quite apt when it comes to depicting all the feels associated with doing a Ph. D, or just working in a lab in general. Here are some of my personal favourites…

Upturned Microscope (

Highly relatable if you’re familiar with lab inter-personal relationships. Sometimes gets a little too close to home and you find yourself laughing and pitying yourself at the same time.

Piled Higher and Deeper (PHD Comic) (

Pretty much #PhDLife in a nutshell.

The Awkward Yeti (

My personal favourite is the gall bladder. “I maked these” is part of my vocabulary now.
