One of my favorite Dutch comics now has some English pages. It's about a psychiatrist.



But for some reason the burka-babes keep showing up



Oh, there's a Latin version as well

I have recently been introduced to Gunnerkrig Court, and it is good.

Read it from the beginning.

I've recently discovered the spiritual successor to The DM of the Rings: Darths & Droids

It's the same basic setup: a classic nerd movie reinterpreted as an RPG session, although the creators have the specific intent of telling a different story with the same pictures. They're maybe a third of the way through The Phantom Menace now, and they've come up with some amusing ideas to explain away why so much of the movie is horrible: Naboo geography and politics make no sense because the players were supposed to stay in orbit and never visit the planet, so the DM had to make it up as he went along, Jar Jar is annoying and childish because his player is a six year old girl, R2 doesn't have a damn voice chip because his player took "mute" as a penalty in order to get bonus points to max out his Repair skill, etc.

I just read through all of Truck Bearing Kibble. That's awsome, even if I have no idea what the name means.

I sort of gave up on Real Life a while back, but I skim the RSS feed now and then. Today's is funneh, if you're a WoW geek:

Ooh, I'd forgotten about this thread. New one since my last post: Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. This one's just panels, no storyline.

In a similar vein to GarfieldminusGarfield
Marmaduke with witty explanations of each comic's deeper meaning.
Many suck but some are freaking hilarious.
http://marmadukeexplained.blogspot.com/

"Marmaduke is mildly rebuked by his owner-lady
(who says she would prefer a subtler and less
aggressive courtship) as he prepares to fuck
the living daylights out of her."

This is probably the best place to put this. Here's the New Yorker vs xkcd. linky Look through the slides for the entries. It is lulz-worthy for the last one.

I dunno if anyone else reads PVP. but the recent Ombudsmen storyline was pretty amusing, in a geeky sort of way. Minor Watchmen spoilers, I guess, if you count seeing syndicated newspaper cartoon characters reenact some key scenes to be spoilers.

So eons later I finally start reading this, and holy shit it's hilarious. Reminds me of my old D&D group, big time.

Oh, yeah, DM of the Rings was so damn funny. I loved it. So far Darths and Droids, its successor, has been a bit of a disappointment, but it's ok. More a problem of the bar being set so high by DM than this one not being good.

I finished Buttersafe yeterday. I subscribed to Amazing Super Powers and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, but I don't think I'll read the archives until next weekend at work.
