Meta-meta-culture

OK, so perhaps it’s just me, but when I heard (from Big Blog of Cheese) that there’s a review written in the style of a graphic novel about a graphic novel, that is itself a story that combines not just the history of the graphic novel as a format but also a re-examination of a canonical English fantasist author –

Nice subtle bit of humour from the Penny Arcade boys, there. Click through for the full-size version, and have a read around while you’re there. If you or any of your mates are serious gamer/obsessive types, you can’t fail to find a good laugh.

Pearls Before Swine

This could almost be a transcript of a conversation between myself and my mate Paul Circuitbenders…he likes to keep me grounded. Either that or he gets a kick out of reminding me that I’m a closet egotist. Possibly both.

Of course, my stats (and occasional comments, cheers guys) tell me that a few people *ARE* reading, so I manage to fend of the paranoiac insecurity that way. Kind of. 🙂
Spotted this on Respectful Insolence, BTW. Another webcomic for the aggregator.
