5. Our people


Applied Comics Etc was founded by Lydia Wysocki, building on the Newcastle Science Comics project she led with a team of seven editors.  We continue to work as a team.

Here’s a list of our talks and articles about comics.

Comics Boss

Lydia Wysocki is an educator, artist, editor, publisher and founder of Applied Comics Etc.  All that wouldn’t fit on her business card, so it says Comics Boss.

Lydia has extensive experience of teaching, development, and public engagement in Higher Education in the UK, USA, and China.  She has also worked in social and market research, as a retail buyer, and as the voice of English language textbooks.  Lydia is doing a part-time PhD in Education, focusing on comics, and is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

For more about Lydia’s artistic practice in comics, drawing, and printmaking, visit her website.

Past collaborators

Applied Comics Etc. uses its local, national, and international networks of comics creators to bring together the right artist, writer, and editor for each project.  This offers the flexibility to find a voice and art style that works for what you want to communicate: the only ‘house style’ is awesome comics.
