Last year, I decided I wanted to start reading more webcomics. Not for any particular reason – I just wanted to. So, I went online, looked up lists of good webcomics and added them to my bookmarks. I read stuff diligently for about a week, after which I forgot all about them and they sunk into the recesses of my bookmark folder.
I’m dusting off one of those links and bringing it back for the letter X. As I’ve mentioned, I’m not the most well-versed in webcomics, but XKCD was one of the first ones I found that immediately appealed to me. It’s nerd humour at its best (the kind that celebrates it), and in an ever-growing collection, there are things to appeal to every kind of nerd.
I haven’t read all 1,000+ comics, so I can’t make a favourites list, so here are 10 good ones I found just by clicking on the ‘random’ button:
Winter (relevant to my previous post)
Dating Pools (relevant to my life)
Mess (relevant always)
Date (relevant to my field of study)
ContextBot (relevant because I’ve complained about this so much)
Convincing (relevant to what I’m teaching my tuition kid – I’m totally the guy in this)
Identity (relevant because it reminds me of my brother)
Scary (relevant because Toy Story is now 20 years old, you guys)
TED Talk (relevant because these are the things I think about as well)
Flies (relevant because mothers, including mine, just say what they need to)
