Friday Humor: Comical

Web comics have always been a part of internet culture, but I have yet to feature one in my Friday Humor section. So, to rectify that, I draw your attention to GU comics.

I don't find them absolutely hilarious but most do make me smile. My favorite two from recent past: the April 13 take on Matrix Online and, of course, the April 21 depiction of Smed as virtual item peddler. But take a stroll through the archives yourself.

While GU covers a wide variety of video games, the main focus is on MMORPG's. In fact, as stated in the faq, the GU was originally /gu which is the Everquest guild chat command.

While this is a comics site, there is also
a very extensive and interesting interview with Brad McQuaid of Sigil Games on virtual merchants.

There are also some pretty intelligent forums. One thread led me to
the link for this incredibly touching story about the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Everquest which I hadn't seen before.

The forums also contain
commentaries from the creator on many of the cartoons along with public discussion which I think is an interesting feature.

On an unrelated note, I would also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone who has not seen the
Friday Humor: Limericks post from two weeks ago to check out the reader contributions. And, even if you did read it the first time, you might want to check back as I recently received and posted some additional submissions. It really shows what a creative bunch you are. A big thanks to everyone who participated!

Having recently discovered it, I have to say GU Comics is pretty good. Not laugh out loud, ha-ha funny, but a lot of stuff that brings a smile to my face.
