Time-waster of the day: September 15, 2011
So you’re soooo into XKCD. Yeah, okay, cool. Everyone on the internet is “soooo into XKCD.” For a new webcomic that hits a bit closer to home (literally), check out Bobwhite, a webcomic by Magnolia Porter, a recent RISD grad.
Bobwhite follows the lives of three friends at an “arts-focused college in Providence, Rhode Island” *COUGH WONDER WHICH ONE,* and it is great.
Part of the fun is spotting PVD specifics, like the statehouse in the background or a reference to H.P. Lovecraft. But even without the added bonus of College Hill in-jokes, this comic does a superb job expressing college, friendships and that particular brand of collegiate insecurity masked by pretension.
Start from the beginning. The comic ended last spring, which means you can read it all in one go. Go!
