Webcomic Wednesday – PhD Comics

This week our regular webcomic guru Sean is buried under a pile of non-comic books due to his studies, so it’s my pleasure to step in for the week to cover a webcomic I enjoy: PhD comics:


A disclaimer up front: this is a webcomic devoted to a very specific audience of those working towards achieving a PhD or other research-related degree at a university.

That said, some of the humour is general enough to give anyone some enjoyment, but if you fall into the target audience you’ll enjoy the strips immensely. Created by Jorge Cham and running since October 1997, there’s the whole gamut of life issues covered, usually with humour. Like any humour-driven comic it does fall flat at times but more often than not it’s a fun read.

So whether you’re a PhD student or not, check out the strips!

Have any webcomics you want checked out? Let Sean know on Twitter @Pipes815, or send him a message via our contact form.
