Wondermark: Another Comic Strip that Fills me with Glee

Thanks to my most recent Blog Explosion tenant, I discovered a lovable little comic strip called Wondermark, which uses old lithograph and line drawings as the basis for telling modern jokes. I loved this type of thing when I had a Mad Magazine book full of them, but this time around, the jokes are a lot more cutting. David Malki knows what he is doing, that is for sure.

The most recent comic for instance has a nice celebrity gossip feel to it and the one before referenced terrorism.

It is at times surreal, blasphemous, and spot-on in choosing its targets. I mean, who wouldn't pay to see this fight. I mean, it is gold, pure comedy gold.

Again, I am probably picking up a trend a little too late, but for those of you who haven't seen it, check out Wondermark. It is worth the time and it updates twice weekly.

You should also roll over the pictures while you are there, as the ALT tags have jokes as well. Hope you enjoy the find.

I bookmarked it. And I don't bookmark ANYTHING.

See, that's the kind of high praise on a recommendation I like to hear.
