More LHC!

In addition to being the biggest particle physics experiment in history, the Large Hadron Collider will likely also soon win the prize for most random collection of media attempting to describe it. The gamut is huge: from the sublime to the mundane, from education to infotainment, and finally to the outright wackadoo, the experiment is so complicated that everyone is having a crack at explaining it to his or her target demographic. (Though the hip-hop-particle-physicist demographic is likely quite small, I would argue that it is also the most awesome.)

Now, a nascent comic book from PhD comics (via Boingboing). The LHC is the kind of thing the cliche "a picture is worth a thousand words" was invented for.
