Adafruit’s comic reading list: Doc Nickel’s The Whiteboard #adafruitcomics

A new edition of Adafruit’s comic reading list — this week it’s The Whiteboard, the first in a series of webcomics recommended by Adafruit forum support guru Mike!

Doc is a polar bear who runs a paintball shop in Alaska. He’s an engineer and inventor. His coffee maker is nuclear powered, and his home-made Mountain Dew melts pavement.

He’s sent paintballs backwards through time, created a pizza teleporter, and ran out of zombies before running out of experimental weapons to test during the Halloween episode.

It started as a slightly aimless gag-a-day format in 2002, but quickly evolved into good, old-fashioned, Looney Toons style slapstick.
