The readers eventually discover that M.C. is Marie Curie, hence the names Poppi (Polonium), Ray (Radium) and Granny Eve (Marie’s Curie’s youngest daughter). Each episode is roughly 50 pages and is soft bound with center staple (like the standard comic book). Stay tuned for more files! You can also check out Kid’s Chemical Solutions for more information.
