On a Lighter Note

  A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about a comic I'd run across in Dinosaur Comics which talked about lazy posting. Dinosaur Comics are definitely a good read but doesn't have much connection to computer science with the exception of a wild one here or there. I thought it would be a good idea to share some other comics I've run across that largely deal with computer science and I enjoy a lot.
  Abstruse Goose is the most recent one I've read. It's a comic with no real overarching presence but has a pretty strong connection to computer science, art, and mathematics. This comic sums up my college career pretty well.

  xkcd by Randall Munroe is a well known and well acclaimed web comic that has a very heavy focus on math, physics, and computer science, although it does get sidetracked sometimes with some rather sappy comics that can feel a bit off track. He also has a lengthy blog of his own with tons of mathematics and science to read to your hearts content.
  Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weiner is my favorite of the comics listed here. Updated daily, Weiner is able to produce consistently funny comics over a wide range of subjects, from philosophy to economics, from politicians to scientists, and inject enough of his own goofy humor into it that it's always a great read. He even has a comic about communicating science!

  1. Comics help me keep my sanity during school. XKCD is great, but I'm not as familiar with the other ones. As far as computer science goes, I think this is the best XKCD comic.

  2. I think these are good but I only hardly understand 2 of them (the first one is easy). These are definitely for an audience like yourself and not so much for the public to become interested in the science of it. It was a nice post though to change things up
