This week's staff pick comes from our Permissions Director, Mary: Probably the most consistently funny (as in out loud guffawing) comics I read every day are Dilbert, The Argyle Sweater, anything Glenn McCoy touches, and Non Sequitur.
Dilbert himself must be hiding in our cubicles, at our meetings, and sure as hell by the water cooler. No one has a better sense of what “really” goes on in an office environment than Scott Adams. You’d think the man was psychic!
Non Sequitur comic has such underlying wit combined with humor, it’s simply remarkable. Wiley Miller for years has been satirical and clever at the same time. Not an easy task when you’re creating comics every day.
Of course there are many more I really enjoy. Ultimately, though, I think we’ll see WuMo become many peoples favorite comic. It has all the makings of a star.
In my line of work -- where companies pay to use our older material -- you get a good sense of the popularity of a comic and its relevance to business just by the sheer number of reuse sales.
To sum it all up, that’s what Dilbert brings to the table.
