Tim reads webcomics (October 18, 2010)
I’m posting this earlier than usual because this week looks grim in terms of me having time to read lots of comics, so I’ll just talk about some comics from last week and we’ll see what happens. Today: comics made by graphic designers! Infographics for everyone! Plus, one comic made by a hack!
Joy of Tech (13/1o/2010)
Car analogy: the cutting edge of humor. Yeah, I know it’s kind of topical but come on.
The Oatmeal (13/10/2010)
I usually don’t mind The Oatmeal, but this one strikes me as particularly shitty. And not just because I have a fetish for #7. It just oozes smugness and disdain for those stupid people who dare to enjoy the moments in life. Though this Randallesque attitude is present in some other Oatmeals, usually they have at least something amusing in them. Not in this one – it’s just completely boring and devoid of joy.
Also some obscure hate-blog “Unfunny Things” made a parody of The Oatmeal this week, which is pretty much spot on.

Oh Hipster Hitler, why must you be so sexy? And lazy. Much like a certain Carl Z. Wheeler. I’m probably going to be fuehred for this.
So you guys were too mean to Kirk and he won’t be writing QCSucks anymore. I don’t read QC regularly, but I just can’t ignore this particular strip:
Questionable Content (15/10/2010)
It seems that Jeph Jacques joins our cause to promote breast cancer awareness (see my previous column) and here we have Angus (that’s Angus, right? they all look the same to me) checking Faye’s breasts for lumps. How thoughtful of him! Let’s just hope this story arc doesn’t take a sudden turn to Funky Winkerbean-ville. Also it might be just me, but this gradient Jeph uses for blushing is hilarious.
