Sea Pangolin and Deep Sea Mining


I never thought I'd ever use a Marvel reference in my comics, but here I am, because explaining the plight of this deep sea 'Iron Man' called for it! Meet the endangered Sea Pangolin, one of the many creatures threatened by deep sea mining for polymetallic nodules.

Special thanks to my friend and Marvel fan Anuradha Kulkarni for giving me a crash course on Iron Man because my knowledge about the Marvel universe is zilch. Comic from my column with Sunday Mid-Day.
