Winona and the Muon by Scisyhp Winona and the Muon by Scisyhp
Woot another comic! I love how Winona turned out as a chibi. >w<.

Although I'm not sure everyone will entirely understand what's happening, because this comic is mostly intended for physics people BUT... I can explain somethings:
-Muons have a half life of around 2.2 Ás/microseconds/millionths of a second.
-Muons decay via the weak nuclear force (hence Winona's appearance)
-The "W- Boson" is the interacting particle of the weak nuclear force that creates the decay, and is indeed a VERY heavy particle compared to other particles. In this case it's Winona's 2H hammer.

Update: One thing that I forgot to add while drawing her costume was her hair-bow. It was one of those things that slipped my mind. XD

Mr. Muon, i'm sure it will be very painful...

This is so nerdy, I love it lol xDDDD
I especially like how she's not one of those anime chicks who just randomly have a big-ass hammer; it actually represents something in the physics world and has an explainable purpose for being there! Very awesome.

Pffffft. xD I didn't really get the physics stuff, but that 2H hammer is -still- funny. And that muon looks truly terrified by it, LOL. c:

Thank you very much! :)

It *is* hard to incorporate Winona in a comic, mostly because the other three forces are recognizable once you explain them with one or two sentences.

But I always pictured a situation like this once I did my muon lab last year, with Winona and a muon in a parody of a children's picture book with cartoonishly cute characters but with dialogue that is VERY nerdy. And that's sort of the inspiration for this comic.

I always wanted to give one of the characters a hammer. You could say this is what Winona does every fraction of a second throughout the universe.
