Three Kingdoms Comic
05 Jul 2005
A comment on my Origin of Koi entry led me to the Three Kingdoms Comic. Wow! Impressive. I’m not sure whether to be more impressed by the concept* or by the fact that it’s available in English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai! I haven’t gotten a chance to read them all yet, but I definitely will.
Since last year I’ve been a big fan of webcomics. My favorites:
– Dinosaur Comics. Ryan North’s sense of humor is the greatest. It amazes me how he can reuse the same panels over and over and still manage to crack me up every damn time.
– Perry Bible Fellowship. Reminds me of the Far Side, but it’s anything but derivitive.
– Nine Planets Without Intelligent Life. Good concept, good (but slow-moving) story.
– Beaver and Steve. Weird humor, cute style.
– Questionable Content. Indie rock post-Friends twenty-something sitcom comic.
– A Softer World. Reminds me of SNL’s old “Deep Thoughts,” with accompanying photography.
* I know that the story of War of the Three Kingdoms has been done in comic form before, but this is a webcomic. Difference.
