This year Wigan STEAM selected Cath Garvey to undertake the Natus residency. During the residency Cath worked on a short comic entitled 'Alien Agency', which was written by Cath and her sister Sarah. The story follows Fran, an outspoken nerd who has always been too busy looking for aliens to have any friends; and Dakota, who is an alien disguised as a human.
