According to Wikipeda, the medium has only been around since the late 1980's. I'm not so sure about that, but I do know that one of the most fondly regarded web-comics currently in existence is (probably) xkcd.
It's uber geek (and proud of it), and mixes biting sarcasm with multi layered humour about high level maths, academia, physics, all thinks geek, and the authors musings on life, love and what it is to be human.
As you may have gathered I'm a little bit of a fan.
So I was delighted when I stumbled across a gorgeously iced xkcd cake which recreated an entire comic, over at the Google-centric blog Googlified.
Unfortunately this is the biggest picture I can find. Original comic link here:

That's it for tonight. See you Wednesday !
