The Order of the Stick
« on: December 15, 2004, 10:47:40 AM »
I'm sure most people here are familiar with this strip, and I did try a search on the board to see if anyone had talked about it before, and I didn't see anything.

But I love this comic. I blazed through all 128 episodes over the course of a couple days. Very funny for anyone that enjoys role-playing.

Here's the link: http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/GiantITP/ootscript?SK=1

Now, considering that about the first post I ever put on this board was the Forklift Training Video (now locked down), I want to make sure to preface this link with what you're going to see by going there.

You will see:
- numerous stick-figure deaths
- stick figure monsters
- minor language, of the sort you might hear in any elementary school in the country
- a leather-clad nubile stick figure hottie thief
- an androgynous stick-figure elf that is strangely attractive regardless of gender

One of my favourite webcomics! Narrow in scope, but I get the jokes, so it rocks.

BTW, I call dibs on Hayley.

Yeah, it is narrow in scope, but oh so funny.

I like Belkor.

Here's a great example of a comic that does a hell of a lot with very simple art. It knows it audience, and it's obvious he's having fun with it.
