I’ve nothing to add. The blurb text at the bottom right says it all.
Haha. Annie, you had me worried there for a second!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Allie Brosh, the creator of Hyperbole and a Half, a comic series of hilarity dealing from everything from pets to depression, is publishing a book. And she was asked to market said book on the internet. Which she did on Twitter. To which someone on Tumblr happily collected into the following link. Please read it, as it is hilarious.
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:
Do these kind of exchanges happen in real life? I kind of hope they do.
Anyone who has been a stealth rogue in a D&D party has felt this pain.
Hannelore, how I love thee.
I’ve all but decided to make my second cat, who won’t stop meowing, internet famous. This is sure to backfire on me too.
I’ve never actually noticed this. I’ll have to try it…
This is why you don’t go into tall grass alone!
I never connected flat tongues with dogs before. Huh.
That should totally be a new rule in the Evil Overlord book!
Guess what? Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Search – Part 1 is headed to stores and available for purchase from comic shops right now!
For those of you who haven’t seen Avatar: The Last Airbender, today is your lucky day! Go watch all of it right now! For our non-US readers, the show is call Avatar: The Legend of Aang outside the US. After that you you’ll get to watch the sequel series Avatar: Legend of Korra and read the last graphic novel Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise (Parts 1,2, and 3)! So much to catch up on and it is so worth it, because one of everybody’s major questions from the first series is finally about to be answered, or at least starting to be answered, since The Search will have 3 parts just like The Promise.
The co-creator of the show, Mike DiMartino, has posted an article advertising the release of the comic. In it he shares his fears about releasing this story. It’s been four and a half years since the conclusion of Avatar: The Last Airbender with this major question hanging over our heads. People have been fantasizing what the answer might be. Will this comic answer it satisfactorily or will things go the way of Lost? It’s a creator’s dilemma and if you know what question I’m talking about, I recommend reading the article here.

I’ve never really been in this situation. I’m usually the one saying “programming!”
Does this make creepers a kind of STD?
I think we’ve all experienced this at some point.
My cat does not lack such intelligence, she just lacks the courage… so far.
It’s true too! So weird to see them floating around in the toilet when I haven’t puked.
