PC Magazine fears me. That is, I think, the only logical explanation.
First they published 10 Wicked Awesome Webcomics, a list of the ten comics they decided had the highest amount of “awesome” tempered with “wicked.”
Help Desk wasn’t on the list. At the time I could only assume the reason was because Help Desk is “awesomely wicked” instead of “wicked awesome.” Still, all the comics they did list are worth looking at.
Now they’ve published The 10 Best Unsung Webcomics, a list of the ten best comics that don’t get the attention they deserve.
Help Desk wasn’t on that list, either, and now of course under the Internet Self Promotion Act of 2001 I am obliged to state that the reason I’m not on the list is because PC Magazine fears me. I’ve never been shy of ridiculing the Computer Industry Press, so obviously they’re retaliating by whimpering in fear any time my url is mentioned.
It’s the only possible reason!
That’s right, guys… I know. I know your fear. If the Internet had olfactory bandwidth I’d be able to smell it.1
That said, you should still check out their list. There are some good comics on it.
