We have just launched a Pozible crowdfunding campaign to help us publish a print edition of our new graphic novel, The Invisible War!

France, 1916. While treating a patient with dysentery, Sister Annie Barnaby encounters a strain of lethal bacteria. As these tiny invaders journey into her gut, her resident microbes fight to survive. Annie’s life hangs in the balance. Enter the phage, a deadly viral predator, ready to wage war to protect their host...
The Invisible War is a unique, micro-macro story designed to engage, entertain and educate students and adults alike. Created by Briony Barr and Dr. Gregory Crocetti in collaboration with writer Ailsa Wild, artist Ben Hutchings and microbiologist Dr. Jeremy Barr this is the third book about microbial symbiosis published by Scale Free Network.
For teachers, students, science nerds and graphic novel fans...prices start from $25, and include postage.
To purchase one or more first edition copies of The Invisible War, visit before ANZAC Day (April 25th). Thanks to Creative Partnerships Australia’s MATCH program, every dollar you give to this campaign will be matched dollar for dollar up to $8,650, provided we reach our Pozible campaign target...sharing this link with your networks will also help make this happen.
May the phage be with you.

This project was developed with support from:

"Bacteriophage Adherence to Mucus — or BAM — is a new model of immunity, which emphasizes the important role bacteriophage viruses play in protecting the body from invading pathogens.
This discovery not only proposes a new immune system but also demonstrates the first symbiotic relationship between viruses and animals."

Dr. Jeremy Barr, San Diego State University, USA

Microbiologist and co-author of The Invisible War
