Since we talked so much about the web comics I read on the latest episode of Nerdy Librarians (available here or on iTunes) I wanted to link to them all and talk a bit about why I like them and mention a few that didn’t make it into the episode:
A very nerdy and fun daily web comic with a focus on science humor. It takes a sarcastic look at most everything so not for the feint of heart.
Very cleave comics delivered in a minimalist stick figure style. This is a consistent gem that is covers a range of topics. A personal favorite.
Unique in that it uses the same panel images for each comic. The cleaver writing makes this a very popular comic.
The web comic about librarianship, should be in the feed of every librarian for it’s insider humor.
Cameron Stewart’s on ongoing story is very interesting contemporary noir story with a enough in common with Lost to hook me.
A sometimes shocking inside look at working in a comic shop, the artist shares things he hears while at work each day.
Certainly NSFW but possibly the best web comic there is. I really don’t know how I failed to mention it. You may have read about the recent legal nonsense going on (if not check out Ars Technica’s coverage, it’s really good) its a great example of why IP law in this country (and other parts of the legal system) may need an overhaul. But the moral of the story is over $220,000 was raised for charity. I’m happy to say I helped contribute. Because of all this, comic updates aren’t as frequent, but dig though the archives. There are some amazing comics.
