The Zen of Professor Nimbus
Tor.com is proud to present Michael Sloan’s “The Zen of Professor Nimbus” strips.
But this is hardly the good Professor’s first foray onto the paneled page:
The Temptation of Professor Nimbus, a 3-page 32 panel comic strip, appeared in The Comics Journal Volume 5 (the Manga Masters issue), published by Fantagraphics in 2005. It is the first commissioned work featuring Nimbus, and offers a rare glimpse into his domestic life.
Professor Nimbus and the Amazing Spectacles, published in 2004, is the first book in the series. It was followed by The Heresy of Professor Nimbus, published in 2006. The Redemption of Professor Nimbus, published in 2009, is the third book in the series. It is about catastrophic global warming, and takes place in Hong Kong.
All three books are available for purchase here.
