It's Techno Thursday!

If you're a regular reader of the Portland Mercury, you're probably familiar with the newest comic in the back section: Techno Tuesday. This comic replaced Jesse Reklaw's weekly dream comic, Slow Wave, and that other one that felt like a bit of a knock-off of Perry Bible Fellowship (Thingpart). A lot of people, including myself, are not a fan of Techno Tuesday. I came up with this idea a week ago and made it today, thinking that I might send it in to the Mercury as a Letter to the Editor:

To be fair to Andy Rementer, the guy that makes this comic, I think he's a pretty good illustrator. I'm not a huge fan of his style, which is a bit of a mix between Robert Crumb and Ron Rege Jr., but he's definitely talented. I just think he's a bad gag writer. Oh, also: he doesn't really make his comics on the computer (I learned that today), but it was funnier to me to have it that way.

Nice one, Khris! I definitely am not a fan of "Techno Tuesday" and thought Ron Rege as well when I first saw it.

I will disagree with you about thingpart by Joe Sayers. I did enjoy that one. Though I wish that stupid Dinosaur comic would meet the same fate as the species...

Uh, it looks like robots have how to start leaving comments.

Techno Tuesday is awesome! You are being a little unfair here. Even if you don't like it, there's no way he spends only 5 minutes on each comic. Every one has new characters and a new hand-drawn title. Plus you are missing the point. It's more about our relationship with and dependence on technology than just cheap computer jokes. I know not every one is solid gold, but usually they are pretty great!

Good job thinking up that idea!
