Tired of searching the web for countless hours trying to find something new on YouTube to entertain you? While you can still continue to waste time on this often less-than-fruitful search, I may have found a optional solution to your needs…
I personally find this to be a rather pleasant change of scene from the ‘Sittin on tha toilet’ videos floating around on YouTube. If you find a good web comic, you get to read it (which means you can do this whenever you happen to have internet and a laptop, silently) and they are usually full of intelligent humor and witty comebacks.
There are two web comics that I keep up with regularly. Both are kinda nerdy (as most web comics are) and both are very different in artistic style.
xkcd is geared more towards the scientific, computer savvy and overall nerd crowd. It’s in a minimalistic setting and you definitely need to have a taste for smart humor. You don’t actually have to read the comics in order (most of the time) but there are some comic series, so it might be better to start at the beginning.
But for now, here’s an example below of one from a few days before..
I highly recommend this comic by Randall Munroe. It’s updated every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Here’s the link! http://xkcd.com/1/
And now for the second one.
This comic by Jeph Jacques is a hilarious and witty story about Marty, his anthropod Pintsize, and other friends and their eventful lives. For this series you HAVE TO start at the beginning of the whole thing, and trust me, once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop until you’ve reached the latest one. This comic is definitely for the music/indie snobs and overall smart-ass people.
A plus with this comic is that you get to see the progression of Jeph’s drawing abilities over time. His art and comics just get better and better. His characters are lovable and quirky, content always unexpected and you are almost always guaranteed a laugh.
I don’t have a picture of an actual comic of his, but here is one of the characters.
Here’s the link to QC http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1 It’s updated every day, Monday through Friday.
I hope you guys enjoy these as much as I do.
