It is authored by research scientist Dante J.T. Shepherd, and was started when he was a research professor at the Fred Paulson Institute. The site takes a novel approach to the webcomic genre in that it features a photograph (or a series of them) with text, graphs and sometimes comics drawn on a chalkboard and expressively framed by the author. This novelty is discussed in the comic itself as an intentional decision. The webcomic is approached as a continuing college class, including recitations, homework, and supplemental material, even going so far as to label the individual comics as "Lessons" and the authors as "Faculty." The strip consists already of over 1639 lessons (including recitations).
