As long as there have been computers there have been computer geeks. And as long as there have been geeks there have been geeky comic strips. Here are some comic strips that register high on the geek-o-meter:
1. Dilbert(www.dilbert.com): Arguably the most popular comic strip of all time, Dilbert has been the torchbearer of the disgruntled cubicle worker for years. Full of wit and ‘the same thing happened to me’ moments, Dilbert is a must read for everyone.
2. Monty(www.comics.com/comics/monty): A surprisingly not-so-well-known comic, Monty tracks the travails of a inventor/nerd Monty and his robot friend as they take on some everyday and some not-so-everyday problems. Highly recommended.
3. User-Friendly(www.userfriendly.org): This is the geekiest of them all. A certain level of familiarity with geek-speak is required here. Programmers and in-jokes abound in this one. Bookmark it. Now!
4. Penny-Arcade(www.penny-arcade.com/comic): This is one of the few webcomics to have made it big. Very out there and very popular among the geeky. You have to read it to believe it.
I’m sure most of you have other personal favourites that tickle your geek bone. Don’t forget to share them with the rest of us. For the time being though, read ’em and geek.
