A comic has been making the rounds in Tumblr that was is both sad and incredibly sweet. Translated from a Japanese comic, I highly recommend this for fans of the Pokemon series, I highly recommend reading it below. Warning, you may catch a few tears in your eyes.

Hehe. I love how enthusiastic the doctor is in the second to last panel.

Girls With Slingshots: 2014-01-10: #1174

I want this to happen to me some day, just so I can use that same joke.

Look at how adorably grumpy she is!

PHD Comics: The Higgs Boson Re-Explained

This is an excellent, if long, comic, explaining some really interesting science.

Something Positive: 2013-09-13: First Day Back

I’ve nothing to add. The blurb text at the bottom right says it all.

Gunnerkrigg Court: Chapter 44: Bonus: Okay

Haha. Annie, you had me worried there for a second!

Superlark: Dear Miss Mayor

Wow. I think I would have to quit video games if any of my video games were ever this nice to me. I wouldn’t be able stand the guilt.

Least I Could Do: Back Hoe FTW: 2013-11-05

I got to admit, this is one of the best one-liners LICD has done in a while. If you want to see the start of the storyline click here.

Comic Suggestion: Star Power

by on Sep.11, 2013, under Comic Suggestions, Comics, Entertainment

Star Power is a three-day a week comic written by the author of Dominic Deegan, Michael “Mookie” Terracciano, and drawn by Garth Graham, whose other work I don’t know but is an excellent artist.

Star Power is about a super hero in a science fiction setting, which is neat in and off itself. But that is not why I am recommending it to you. I’m recommending it to you because of the latest page, which is sadly a spoiler to most of the action of Chapter 2. So I recommend starting from the beginning, but if you need more proof, click here for Star Power: Vol 1 – Chapter 2 – Page 20: Right Call. I’ll warn you it likely doesn’t have the same emotional impact.

Aside from that, the comic has a baseline of aspects that just make it likeable, including varied characters of obvious depth, good levels of humor and drama. If I have one complaint it is how slow the story moves, even with a three-day a week schedule.

Comic: The Oatmeal: Mantis Shrimp

You have likely heard of the Mantis Shrimp. If you have not, it is perhaps one of the sea’s most special creatures. So special that The Oatmeal devoted and entire rambling comic to how awesomely special it is, which I must share with you.

Actually I’m pretty sure it was the porn that spawned the idea.

This is the most amazing idea ever.

Something Positive: 2013-07-09: Questing

Okay now I want to hire an employee just so I can do this.

Yeah I’m with PeeJee. I’m not sure I’d go that far.

If You Find a Baby Bird

by on Jun.26, 2013, under Articles, Comics, Entertainment

The myth of not touching baby birds because their parents will abandon them has annoyed me for a while. Luckily artist Rosemary Mosco has created this lovely graphic for helping us decide what to do:

What about if it has feathers AND sharp pointy teeth?
