In addition to reading comic books, I also enjoy reading comic strips or what some may call “The Funnies”. Open up your local newspaper and you are likely to find comic strips that have been there for years and in some cases decades. Some of these comics are funny, and some are clearly phoning it in. From what I can tell, it’s extremely hard to break into the business and get syndicated. Luckily for us, there is such a thing as the Internet.
I would like to point you to one such web comic, Sheldon, which makes me laugh on a consistent basis. I emailed the creator, Dave Kellett, and he told me I could post one of his comics here, as long as I link back to his site. Here is the Sheldon strip from Sunday. This one really made me laugh. It is equal parts funny, cute, and nerdy. You can’t go wrong with that. Click on the strip to enlarge it. Click here to read the comic at sheldoncomics.com.
So, if you like this comic, stop by http://www.sheldoncomics.com/and check out the rest of the comics. Here is a description of the comic and its characters. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Here is a link to a story arch about Star Wars.
