Just because newspapers are dying out, doesn’t mean comic strips are.
By Brandon Rizzuto
When you were a kid, did you used to take the comics section out of your parent’s newspaper? The ten minutes it took to read that day’s Baby Blues, Zits, Peanuts, and The Boondocks strips were as much of a staple for me as Saturday morning cartoons. However, it’s 2016 now. Who reads newspapers? Screw that noise. Now I get my dose of the “funnies” through the internet, mostly Tumblr. I encourage you to waste some time at work and check out these comics. Hell, go all the way back and even check out their earlier strips. Why? Because your boss has never made you laugh, right? Exactly. Antidisestablishmentarianism. With comics.
The Awkward Yeti
The Awkward Yeti is a comic encompassing a few different strips, created by cartoonist Nick Seluk, The two main series include The Awkward Yeti, relaying to readers the everyday awkward life of Lars the yeti, and a spin off strip entitled Heart and Brain. Many strips, including Heart and Brain, personify Lars’s organs and how they interact with other organs and Lars himself. While Heart and Brain is probably the most popular series of strips, I’m particularly fond of Lars’s gall bladder – a baby organ just trying to help.
