Well-informed or sane?

Recently, I’ve been hanging out with old high school friends who’ve gone into law and government work, and thus are enmeshed with current events and politics.  I, on the other hand, don’t read the news, and have no cable TV.  They give me a lot of stick for my ignorance of what’s going on in […]

Oh No Robot

A friend brought Oh No Robot to my attention when I was flailingly describing a webcomic I’d found funny. It indexes the text of comics and makes them searchable. Not a heavily-used tool, really, but good to know it’s there. http://www.ohnorobot.com

Rhizome | General Web Content

http://rhizome.org/editorial/3739 CAPTCHArt. While the cartoons are hit and miss, the idea is hilarious in and of itself. I wish I’d thought of it first, but then, CAPTCHAs fill me with so much rage thought isn’t an option…

Sinister Bedfellows – Sunday , August 16 , 2009

http://mckenzee.comicgenesis.com/ Sinister Bedfellows is my favourite of the photo-webcomics out there. It’s not as Dark as A Softer World, and there’s a pleasant mix of foreboding and laugh-inducing strips that make it a great joy to check regularly; you never know what you’ll get.

JOE MATHLETE EXPLAINS TODAYS MARMADUKE

http://marmadukeexplained.blogspot.com/ A blogger attempts to explain what makes Marmaduke strips funny. He’s got a tough job, but as his powers of observation are clearly stronger than mine, I have faith… Marmaduke’s habit of skulking about in the attic is not appreciated by his sleepy owners, who implore him to stop as he peers down at […]

Why we dont hate Garfield. – By Chris Suellentrop – Slate Magazine

http://www.slate.com/id/2102299 And from the opposite end of the spectrum, an examination of the hollow sham/commercial juggernaut that is Garfield. Davis makes no attempt to conceal the crass commercial motivations behind his creation of Garfield. Davis has the soul of an adman – his first job after dropping out of Ball State, where he majored in […]

Deadpool – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deadpool I’ve spent the past two days immersing myself in the waters of comics geekery, waters in which I’ve barely paddled previously. Growing up, the comics I read were tattered hand-me-downs from my older cousins, pretty much limited to Ghost Tales and Scrooge McDuck. When my friends in school started buying comics, the prices were […]
