Who doesn’t love technology? Waking up Christmas day and unwrapping that new shiny toy that allows you to access the internet from the strangest of places, like a train heading to the big city or the bathroom of a pizzeria? When I began the search for today’s web comics Wednesday, I never imagined that the theme of Tech was so prevalent. But here they are; five quality strips that share the love for new technology.
If you’re new to this, here’s the scoop: Each Wednesday we will showcase five indie web comics. Each will be categorized and will be judged by ART, STORY and APPEAL. This will give you an opportunity to support indie artists and the amazing work they do.
Comic: The Brads
Story & Art: Brad Colbow & Brad Dielman
About: The Brads is a weekly web comic about Brad Colbow and Brad Dielman, two web designers in Cleveland Ohio. Brad Colbow spends part of his days wondering how to combine his two loves, comic books and easter eggs. The rest of his time he spends trying to design killer user interfaces. Based on the real life front end development ninja with the same name Brad Dielman’s obsession with web standards and Apple products will one day ruin his life, but for now it makes him a great designer.
Comic: The PC Weenies
Story & Art: Krishna M. Sadasivam
About: The PC Weenies have appeared online since October 1998. The primary audience for this thrice-a-week comic are technology enthusiasts, engineers, systems administrators / IT, and software developers. While you’re at it, be sure to check out Krishna’s other webcomic, Uncubed. You may also find his portfolio site worth checking out.
Comic: Geek Hero Comic
Story & Art: Salvatore Iovene
About: Geek Hero is a comic about Randall (friends call him Randie), a hardcore geek with the sweetest heart. Randall is an Open Source developer for a large company, a Debian user and sometimes doesn’t relate well with his peers!
Comic: Little Gamers
Story: Pontus Madsen
Art: Christian Fundin
About: “I personally don’t see LG as a webcomic, since we have no ‘2 months ahead of schedule in comics and storylines’.. I see it more as a blog, about what happens in our lives, and exaggerated to be a bit more fun than CNN.” –Pontus Madsen (Note: Little Gamers will be unavailable for most of 1/18 in observance of a blackout to protest SOPA.)
About: The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture, created by Nitrozac and Snaggy, and updated three times a week. We like to feature the people and events that are making today’s tech news.
