“academic mice” is a web comic drawn by me, in my capacity as a professor of economics who is an amused observer of trends in higher education. On September 2, 2010 “academic mice” debuted in print in The Breeze, the student newspaper of James Madison University. It ran for a year before reverting to web-comic-only status. Below you’ll find the strip’s story and a few sample comics.

And finally, the only animated version of “academic mice” that appeared: Holiday Greetings!
