I need to break my webcomic addiction

This comic, titled "Outreach" from xkcd is perhaps the only thing that gives me a tiny twinge of envy when people tell me they're studying science. Once I stop laughing at the comic though, I remember that my degree means I get to read children's books and have only nine contact hours of classes a week. Take that, flying shark-wielding scientists.

Kinoko Fry. And coffee.

The latest update on the wonderful Hark! A Vagrant, was a guest comic by Rebecca Clements from Kinoko Fry. Kinoko Fry, it turns out, is all kinds of awesome. It's sort of like SuperMario, some anime and The Nightmare Before Christmas had an inky three-way (oh dear, where am I going with this??) which somehow resulted in a love-child. And that love-child was beautiful and humourous, knew that comics needed tight and strong narratives.

This is one of my favourites, mainly because it reflects exactly how I choose to work.

And now, given that I've run out of things to blog about here... I better go to another cafe...
