Recently started reading, on a binge
« on: 12 Jan 2021, 16:53 »

Hey! My name is Manu, I started reading recently, and was crazy enough to go back to the first comics and try to binge the entire thing. currently around comic 790.
Not sure how often i'll post in here, but i'm just happy that I was able to find this place. Happy QC'ing, and see y'all around!

Ah, The BingeTM ... unsolicited advice, if I may? Enjoy it. My own binge (ten years ago) lasted about five days, and it's a bit of a shock when you go from one comic every 30 seconds to five comics per week.

Welcome, hope to read you in the future!

I envy you. I started reading around #150. About 18 years ago? I don't know. You're in for something nice. Check Alice Grove too, and Dresden Codak, Dinosaur Comics, and some other things that might be not to your liking so I won't mention them. Also try smbc and xkcd (Randall's) and that other one I can't remember the name of -- now that's bugging me.

EDIT: meh, I'll think of it tomorrow: I've already thought of half a dozen, and I don't want you to get on more of a binge.

I, for one, welcome the fragmentation of deeper levels of shared reality.

Welcome, new friend.

Yeah, pace yourself. The comic slows down a lot when you end up reading it daily instead of 400 in a row.
