WELCOME TO THE ZEN OF NIMBUS

Greetings! I'm Michael Sloan, and this is the official site devoted to Nimbus, my comic character. You can view my Zen of Nimbus comic, read my Chronicles of Nimbus graphic novels, browse through Travels of Nimbus artwork, and buy Nimbus t-shirts at my shop.

Who is Nimbus? He's a world-famous astronomer and explorer, reluctant celebrity, space traveler, adventurer, quixotic character, cosmic contemplator... and more. Browse through this site and discover the world of Nimbus!
