Irregular Webcomic

One of my favourite places to visit online is "Irregular Webcomic". The strip runs several independent plotlines which sometimes overlap, including Shakespeare as a modern technical writer, an incompetent fantasy-world adventuring party, an entirely… more »

Lore Sjöberg, Wired's resident humourist, takes a look over the various spells from the world of Harry Potter. This will be my only Potter-related link ever, promise. Ritchie, on the other hand, will happily post reams on why magic is entirely… more »
