Ah, by the time this comic is posted, I’ve officially begun my vacation time over the holidays. I will be “off the grid”, as they say – or at least pretend to be – so I won’t be posting any new comics until after new years. But with some luck I’ll probably post something before [...]

Hello. Here’s a comic I made for your enjoyment purposes. Oh, and I’ve gotten a ton of StumbleUpon traffic these past couple days, so a special greeting goes out to any new visitors, followers and subscribers!
Fun fact: This one started out as a bad comic. (And you can probably tell!) Provided I can pull it off properly, I’ve got a much more somber affair planned for Monday. Stay tuned.
Mon dieu! C’est une bande dessinée! Avec aliens! This one went through so many iterations that will never see the light of day, but became a lot easier to write once I realized the Eiffel Tower probably is an asshole. (No offense to my French readers! I love you!)
Trivia: I somewhat tried to make the last panel look like a certain scene from Jurassic Park. Also, the soundtrack to this strip is probably “The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)” by Flight of the Conchords.

Here you go, another retro comic from the depths of the Optipess archives. This one was one of the very first strips I made back in 2007, and I dug it up figuring it would contain a shred of entertainment value even now. My rediscovered essays from grade school, on the other hand, still surely [...]
Ah yes, it’s a programming joke! Also: stay tuned for a blog post on Wednesday with an exciting video depicting the process of making this strip. And, is it funny today? Vote!
Here’s a new comic. I hope you like it. These aliens will probably make a few more appearances. (Oh, and the alien design is inadvertently somewhat inspired by the one alien character from the excellent Norwegian webcomic Paraetaten.) Also, and I know it looks a bit messy at the moment, but I’ve added submit/vote buttons [...]
If I ever get around to make Optipess merchandise, real boxes of “Crunchies” cereal will be a top priority. Also, apparently my webhost was down again sometime over the past few hours — obviously it’s working right now as you’re reading this — but if this keeps up I guess I’ll have to look for an [...]
