For a Chuckle

In addition to blogs in my feed reader I subscribe to a number of RSS feeds for comics related to gaming or my life in general. I figured I would share them with you and request that you do the same. Let me know if there are any gaming-type comics out there that I should be paying attention to.

1) Ctrl+Alt+Del by Tim Buckley: This is a humorful sight that has a bit of an edge to it. Most often it is safe for work. Tim covers the gamut of consoles to pen and paper gaming and also publishes a blog about these things to accompany his comics.

2) xkcd by Randall Munroe: This comic has a lot of high brow humor and makes you think a bit. I’ll admit I don’t even get all of the comics but there are a ton that have been pinned up at work.

3) PhD Comics by Jorge Cham: If anyone ever went through grad school this comic will definitely make you laugh and cry. Having attended graduate school, this comic reminds me frequently how much I am glad I have graduated.

4) Order of the Stick by Rich Burlew: This comic is new for me and I am so glad I found it. If you have ever played Dungeons & Dragons, this is the comic for you. If you haven’t PnP’ed then you may still like it, but you may not understand some of the humor. If Belkar isn’t your favorite character then I can’t associate with you. LOL

5) PvP by Scott Kurtz: This is one that used to be on my feed but got lost during the transition from google reader. It has been a while since I read it but from what I remember it was pretty good, so I am happy to have added it back on.

6) Penny Arcade by Mike “Gabe” Krahulik and Jerry “Tycho” Holkins: Everyone knows about these guys and I used to read them often, unfortunately they were making reading their comic at work a little dangerous for a while so I removed them from my reader. Definitely funny, but be careful.

So that is my list. Like I mentioned please suggest more, but please recommend ones I can read at work too.

    Oooo! Never heard of PvP. I won’t lie, the comics list on my RSS feed is pretty intense, but it’s all good stuff. Are you ready? (I’ll skip ones you’ve already mentioned)

    Aikonia / Awkward Zombie (made by the same author, her take on gaming is hysterical)
    Dinosaur Comics (uses the same panels, but with different text)
    Dork Tower (John Kovalic. You’ve seen his artwork)
    Le Rage Comics (because I love the crowd sourcing)
    Looking For Group (serialized, similar to Order of the Stick)
    Nerf Now (three-panel, about MOBAs mostly, but sometimes other games)
    The Oatmeal (because Matthew Inman is genius… disturbing, but genius)
    SMBC (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. Daily comic, cerebral and random like xkcd)
    Surviving the World (not a comic, but daily musings)
    PhD Unknown (from the same guy who does Surviving the World)
    and The Trenches (Penny Arcade’s serial about game development)

    From your list, I would assume we have similar tastes, so I think you would enjoy all of these. :)
