The (unofficial) Manga Guide to Woo Arguments

Unofficial Manga Guide to Woo

Unofficial Manga Guide to Woo

This manga short was created especially for my first post to Skeptic North! It is the second in what could eventually turn into a series of “The (unofficial) Manga Guide to:” manga shorts. The first was “The (unofficial) Manga Guide to TED“, with cameos from Chris Anderson and Prof. Brian Cox. Another manga strip of mine that comments on solipsism is a page called Boromir’s Solipsism, which has an accompanying article on the subject. The purple-haired woo character found above in uMG2: Woo Arguments first appeared in my post called Spontaneous Toaster Effect.

I hope you enjoy my work. I’m always looking for ways to randomly reference Star Trek, hobbits, or He-man.

    Great work! Found your stuff via Bad Astronomy. Do you mind if I paste these into my science class Moodle on pseudoscience? Referenced of course
    Although I may need to explain what Star Trek: TNG is to my 15 year old students as it stopped being made before they were born! Egad I feel old.
