Max, Kid Scientist
Max is the lovable 8 year-old with a heart (and hair) of gold. His deep curiosity about his world explains his drive to innovate and try new things. His generosity and love of both computers and biotech inform his desire to improve the lives of others through technology. Max is a dreamer, loves science research, and remains wildly optimistic despite countless past failures. He approaches every new idea with a childlike spirit only an 8 year-old can have. His creativity ensures that he will never run out of projects, some of which have been impulsive and zany. He skipped junior high, finished all his college coursework in one year, and enrolled at The University for graduate studies. Despite his precociousness, Max seems to have a knack for screwing things up, often because he's still just a kid.
Max believes he can achieve anything he sets his mind to, deriving strength from his favorite superhero characters, especially Iron Man. He loves video games and social media, but admits both can be hugely wasteful.
The Think Shop comic strip is largely about Max and his scientific ideas. But his friends and their kid adventures are also explored in the strip. Fans can read Think Shop comics online free at The MuseStand website, by RSS, or on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook.
