I am Science: CHEMISTRY and COMICS
My first love has and always will be chemistry. However shortly thereafter I fell in love with a guy that owned a comic book store. After graduating as a chemistry major in college, we got married and I started my PhD. While in graduate school, I attended comic book conventions helping my husband sell comic books and toys . I had attended more comic book conventions than chemistry /science conventions … The balance has changed now tipping in favor of science.
Subsequently earning my phd in bioorganic chemistry, my husband sold his shop and followed me to CA so I could carry out my postdoc. He took up freelance editing and landed a job as an editor for DC comics in NY..fortunately I was able to secure a faculty position in NY. Now he is a freelance comic book writer and I am leading an awesome group of bright young scientists /engineers.
I am science. 
PS. Comic book conventions and scientific conferences are very similar—-the only difference is that you are likely to find yourself standing in line next to someone dressed up as storm trooper!
