What I love most about comics is their ability to highlight the humor in everyday things. Be it work, family or society, comics put a silly spin on all the mundane aspects of our lives. Mondays, for example, used to be the bane of my existence until I started working at GoComics. Now, I come in, log on and start my week off with a laugh, catching up with all of my favorite GoComics characters and how they’re making it through their Monday mornings. That little bit of relatable ridiculousness has become a very welcome and necessary part of my workday.
Because of that, I feel like I should share the comic wealth with all of you and tell you about some of the strips that have had me cracking up in my cubicle throughout the past few weeks. If you have been following along with our newest comics, you know that we have launched some seriously hilarious ones recently!
First, there’s Wrong Hands by John Atkinson. You want to hear about ridiculousness? This strip deals with everything from calculus to coffee to chocolate addictions, making them all laugh-out-loud hilarious.
Next, I’d like to rave about The Daily Drawing by Lorie Ransom. This strip is the perfect example of turning commonplace things into comedic relief, and it keeps me laughing day after day (literally, I laugh at every single strip).
My final favorite, Michael Jantze’s The Norm 4.0,is a continuation of an old favorite. You might remember Theodore Norman Miller from his original strip, The Norm, but he’s all grown up now. With a job, a wife and two little kids, Norm’s life is wilder – and more hilarious – than it’s ever been! He embraces it, though, finding humor in the chaos, making him the kind of hero that I love to root for.
