I was all set to write an article about how excited I was about the Google Marvel comics app when I discovered that Matt was already working on one. Instead I’ll tell you a tale of how I started collecting comics, and the dark dark day that I stopped.
Scott Kurtz, Mike Krahulik, and Jerry Holkins all started web comics in the 90s. PvP and Penny Arcade have gone on to be MASSIVE online hits and have even branched out into conventions (PAX), books, and an animated series. The success is easily measured. Well the three of them apparently bored out of their skulls with running their current empires decided to branch out with a new comic called The Trenches. Only been one strip so far, just came out yesterday. The new series is titled The Trenches.
I could tell you what it’s about, but to be honest with only one strip out, they can probably do it better.
The Trenches documents the tribulations of software testing with the precision tools of “the office comedy.” It has lots of characters and lots of things happen. We’re getting to all of that. For now, here are some mysterious silhouettes.
So there you have it, this has already been added to my weekly reader list.
