Should you buy your comics on Comixology or Amazon?

Any comics you buy on Amazon, you read with the Comixology app. What is Comixology? Comixology is by far, the leading digital comic app. They have nearly everything. I read all my […]

The first xkcd you ever read

When did you first discover the webcomic xkcd? If you don’t know about this webcomic, you need to read it NOW.

From detention-grade mattresses with welded seams...

Prison construction released to the public

Ben Katchor has such unique views of urban life. Here he draws the parallel of how the durability of prison construction is eventually adopted by the outside world. Tamper-proof toilets and sinks.

Calvin nails Susie with a water balloon

Telling a story in one comic strip panel

That one panel where calvin throws the water balloon is brilliant. All the action summed up in one panel. Other comic strip artists would have put the “HEY SUSIE!!” in another panel. But here Watterson takes both actions–the before and after and puts it into one panel. In fact, it’s three actions. The before (warning), […]
