Worthwhile Webcomics: xkcd, by Randall Munroe

Mama Fisi's picture

A webcomic I've heard lots about, and which has been frequently referenced by my friends, is xkcd, which is neither an acronym nor a pronouncable word, just a string of random meaningless letters, unless you like Scrabble, and then they're some of those high-score letters you hate to get because they're hard to get rid of.

That kind of sums up my impression of xkcd, the comic strip.

Once you start hitting the "random comic" button on the strip, you can get stuck there all day...


Firefly vs. xkcd: “The Race”

Happy June, everyone.

Recently the web comic xkcd did a small, but pretty funny Firefly-based arc. The thing I liked about it (Aside from it actually being funny) was that they actually kind of caught the characters’ voices from the show and the overall feel of the space cowboy patois they spoke with in the show. It’ll take you less than five minutes to read it, and it’s well worth your time.
