Owen the Sponge

We’re talking about sponges this week in Invertebrate Biology and I remembered I had a story about that. “Owen” was a 3-page mini-comic (nano-comic?) that I did in 2000 for the Small Press Expo. The sink in the final panel is from our first apartment. The baby mentioned off panel is Max. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Note that bits of Owen broke off when he was harvested. He’s still there on the reef, same as Phil. To the extent that sponges have an identity that it it’s identical (yes, I did that on purpose) with their genome.
