Good Philosophical Comic Strips (Friday Fun)


Let’s get a list of good philosophical comic strips going. Post one you like. If it is online, great; list a brief description along with the web address, like so:

Dinosaur Comics on philosophical progress – http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=787.

If you just have a hard copy, take a photo of it and post it somewhere online. Or, if you can’t do that, send the photo to dailynouseditor[at]gmail[dot]com and I should be able to put it up and send you a link to it for you to post.

The webcomic ‘xkcd’ often has rather good comics intersecting with philosophy. Here are a just a few:
“Trapped” – http://xkcd.com/876/
“Revolutionary” – https://xkcd.com/675/
“Philosophy” – http://xkcd.com/220/

Chaospet is full of great philosophical comics.

One of my favorites is the three-part series on the Trolley Problem:

http://chaospet.com/31-trolley-problem-again/

http://chaospet.com/32-double-effect-saves-the-day/

….which gives us one of my very favorite lines in the history of webcomics, “Oh no, a consequentialist!”

And we shouldn’t forget Dresden Codak’s two “Dungeons and Discourse” comics.

SMBC is really excellent. And I never knew the big red button gave you a bonus panel – now I have to go through a bunch of comics there again!
