Correction: Alex just informed me that this is really the work of Shenaningansen over at Owl Turd Comix. I tried to make sure I gave credit to the right person, but…what can I say? I suck. Anyway, I dig 1111comics, but OwlTurd.com has some really funny and cool stuff, too, so go check Shen out over there.
Alex Wronski over at 1111comics.me has shown a penchant for posting webcomics that are irreverent, but sometimes…you get some really deep exploration of the human condition. I love the webcomic format because it’s easily digestible, sometimes self-contained (some of the more gag-of-the-day comics don’t really focus on long-form story-telling), and easily shareable with students.
I love how this strip illustrates (pun intended) how comics can convey so much meaning with really rudimentary visuals, just as well as elaborate prose can.
