just one chapter so far at 9 pages, it's interesting if not amusing.

The Nerds of Paradise is an ongoing online comic by D. Beran attempting to approximate the sort of comics nerds would read if accepted into paradise.  New comics will arrive about once a month and will always be free.

The writer/artist also wrote A Lesson is Learned but the Damage is Irreversible, which i seem to remember starting and not finishing.

Some of the "Damage is Irreversible" strips really spoke to me, though in that way that your own dreams really speak to you.

You can barely remember why they felt so important the moment you leave.

I wonder, if there happened to be a next life, if that's how this world will feel after the fact.

Vague and lingering, narratives half-remembered but the occasional freezeframes burnt in behind your eyes like Polaroids preserved in amber.

Hm. Good strip.

Yeah I 'm looking forward to seeing more of this.

Too much. Tone it back a smidge.

Wow, I really like that. Looking forward to more.

I'm hesitant to repeat the old Onstad chestnut, but it really would read better in print.
