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.
I want this to happen to me some day, just so I can use that same joke.
Look at how adorably grumpy she is!
This is an excellent, if long, comic, explaining some really interesting science.
I just really like this comic.
I think it has been awhile since I mentioned how adorable Grace is. Grace is adorable.
Forget the joke. This is the craftiest comic ever!
I just love Susan’s pose of triumph.
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.
