Comic #1295

1 A stick figure representing Me: {drawing on a whiteboard} This will be so cool. The first ever webcomic drawn on a whiteboard!
2 A stick figure representing Me inside the comic the stick figure representing Me is drawing: This isn't going to be stupidly recursive and self-referential, is it?
3 A stick figure representing Me: Shut up. I'm doing the funny stuff here.
3 A stick figure representing Me inside the comic the stick figure representing Me inside the comic the stick figure representing Me is drawing is drawing: You tell him!
4 A stick figure representing Me: {struggling with the whiteboard printer} If only the bloody printer would work...

I was on a lunch break at work one day and waiting for the co-workers I usually play games with to show up, when I began doodling this on the whiteboard in the room. Meta-ironically, the printer did work, which is how I have this to show it to you today. (If it hadn't worked, you never would have seen it.)

This comic tells more than one lie. There is another webcomic that was drawn on a whiteboard, as far back as 2002, and a good six months before Irregular Webcomic! even began. The Whiteboard has since evolved into a more standard format webcomic and is still going strong. Its tagline is "Alaska's Coolest Paintball Webcomic!" which is, frankly, a claim not to be sneezed at, because I've looked at Alaska's second-coolest paintball webcomic, and it's not bad.


2016-02-03 Rerun commentary: Hey, wow, I'd forgotten about this one.

Now, of course, there is another whiteboard comic which I also look after: The Dinosaur Whiteboard. Which accepts reader contributions! All you need to go is go buy one of Ryan North's uber-cool Dinosaur Comics whiteboards, and you too can achieve fame and fortune!

Oh, and in yet another blast from the past that might need some explaining these days: The reason you never would have seen this comic if the whiteboard printer hadn't been working is because it was 2006, and people didn't walk around with phone-cameras in their pockets.

Gosh, these comics have aged really badly, haven't they? I suppose in another ten years I'll have to explain why I didn't just download the image from the memory in my brain direct to your brain, via crystal memory cubes.
