Annual portion of cool comic strips

A little over year ago I had posted about comic strips about tech that never fail to make me smile in the morning. Then and since then I had burned through some more and year of time proven few of them to be sticky.

So here they are.

Geek and Poke



This comic has no distinct characters and no other purpose other than witty trashing of social media and hype that comes with it. It puts many cloudy things in deadly logical perspective and always says aloud dumb little things, that techies tend to keep silent about.

Person that got me hooked - Altiris_Grunt, if you are still reading blog – thanks for suggestion! :)

What the Duck



Comic covers work an (lack of) life of professional photographer. I cannot really relate to photography part (maybe, some day…) but I relate a lot to misanthropic professional that has to deal with humans (yuck).

Person that got me hooked – Peter, another reader I hope is still around. :)

The Brads



This one covers another profession – web design. Yet again not my area, but something I have to keep an eye out for my blog. Comic is full of soft charming (self)irony and always pleasure to read.

What got me hooked – don’t remember, might have picked it up on Twitter.

Ben Tremblay



After seventh (or so) course change Ben’s blog turned into stream of minimalistic graphical posts. It’s not really a comic but it is very refreshing form for a blog and in few words it upkeeps what Ben was always good at – keeping his corner of the web free of dumb crap.

What got me hooked – by now I am simply curious if Ben ever stops shooting his blog three times a year. :)

What makes you smile in the morning? Share your favorites in comments. :)

    "Keeping my corner of the web free of dumb crap"...Might consider that for a new tag line. ;) Thanks Rarst for including me in your "cool comic strips" post, even though what I do would be better described as sketches or minimalistic graphical posts as you mentioned. Will I be shooting my blog another time? Only time will tell. Seriously, I love doing these sketches: they kinda represent how my brain works(lots of short visual thoughts/ideas ), it's very natural to me and I've been not too bad so far at pumping out content quite regularly. Anyway, thanks again Rarst ( for this and for still reading the blog after 7+ course change :) ) Ben.

    @Ben You are welcome. And your blog isn't hard to read - there is less to read after each shooting... ;)
