Books and Lasagna

A friend’s husband posted a comic clip I thought it worth saving and sharing.

Penny Arcade, “Progress”:
pennyarcade

Written by Jerry Holkins and illustrated by Mike Krahulik, Penny Arcade is a comic that focuses on the gaming culture and video games. Debuted in 1998, it’s among the popular gaming comics online.

Two webcomics that I’ve occasionally read the past several years are Little Gamers and the Order of the Stick. Written and illustrated by Christian Fundin and Pontus Madsen, Little Gamers is another webcomic that comments on the video game culture. A satire about tabletop roleplaying games, The Order of the Stick follows Dungeons and Dragons adventurers on a quest. Created by Rich Burlew, it has a lot of inside jokes.

Little Gamers:

Speaking of comics and since I recently read about it, Jim Davis’s strip about a lasagna-loving cat holds the Guinness World Record for being the world’s most widely syndicated. First published in 1978, Garfield is printed in about 2,500 newspapers. That’s heaping piles of chuckles and pasta that all started because Davis’s asthma kept him inside a lot as a youth and from following in the family’s farm business.

Anyone else like any particular comics, online or off?

  1. That comic strip just tickled my funny bone. :]

    Yes, I am quite a big fan of online comics, specifically those of the fantasy or historical genre. Have you heard of Phoenix Requiem, Haru Sari, or Hero? These are just a few of my favorites.

    As for offline, I used to be an avid reader of Japanese-styled comics, manga. Now, not so much as I don’t spend much time in bookstores anymore.

  2. Then it did its job. ūüôā

    No, I haven’t. Might have to check into them sometime. I used to read Japanese comics.
