interweb shoutout: xkcd
In the last few years I've been getting a lot more into graphic novels from artists like Chris Ware and Lilli Carré. But sometimes you just want a quick hit of cartoon humor, and I'm happy to say I've found a great new place for just that: xkcd.
Billed as a "webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language," xkcd is a thinking man's (and woman's) cartoon. While not lounging in the ball pit he installed in his apartment, author Randall Munroe makes his stick figures loveable by placing them in cerebrally advanced situations such as... Playing with the Large Hadron Collider! Digging (and dishing on) Mythbusters! Poking fun at the Drake Equation!
Anyone with nerdy tendencies should check this comic—and its accompanying blog—as soon as possible. ∞
