Random Quickies: Twitter: The Comic

20130503-165541.jpg

Gather ’round children, and let me tell you a tale of webcomics past. Webcomics of yore! You see, there used to be a time when young men and women made webcomics based on unlikely prompts. Spam email! Palindromes! Ah, but the world is a more sophisticated place now, with no time for such primitive..,.

What’s that you say? There’s a Twitter: The Comic?

Yessiree, my friends, Mike Rosenthal (or, as he’s known on Twitter, “@vectorbelly“) has been moderating a posse of webcomic artists on Tumblr to create comics based on Tweets. They’re often quite funny. It helps that most of the Tweets selected tell a sort of minifiction in under 140 characters. Do you know anyone who actually tweets:

WELCOME TO APPLEBEES MAY I TAKE YOUR ORDER. DID U SAY “A PLATE OF SPIDERS” TOO LATE HERE IT COMES. U HAVE TO EAT IT ALL OR WE CALL THE COPS

Me neither. But apparently it got 1,000 retweets… and this rad webcomic.

  1. It’s a really gimmicky comic, indeed…

    …And yet I always crack at this one http://24.media.tumblr.com/a3afdb2b6969b1dba75e8570a2b7ebdb/tumblr_miwbjflIsm1rr17gfo7_1280.jpg

    Also, the art kinda reminds me of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. But that doesn’t matter much.

  2. Thus proving that a picture is NOT in fact worth 1000 words — 140 characters is worth 4 pictures!

  3. Who DOESN’T tweet things like this?

    He seems to have hopes of publishing them one day. I hope he contacts the authors of those tweets if he does.
