Environmental comic strips
Andy Lubershane’s weekly series Earthly Comics works to unpack environmental topics that can be difficult to understand: walkability; pervious concrete; cellulosic ethanol. Not the stuff of Marmaduke, but it does break some complicated ideas down into digestible chunks, and it’s pretty lighthearted.
For younger earth-conscious readers, the Department of Sanitation’s outreach and education arm, NYCWasteLe$$, has put together a comic book series called TrashMasters! Aimed to kids grades pre-k-1, 2-3, and 4-6, the series follows the adventures of kids who believe in cleaning up their schools and neighborhoods. TrashMasters also comes in an interactive online format.
