Pixton – create your own comic strips

Comic strip

This morning I’ve been playing around with Pixton, an online application that allows you to quickly and simply create comic strips.

Look what (utterly random bits of digital nonsense) I made:

Next week I plan to recreate the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy using Pixton …

Well, that or the Old Testament.

The DM of the Rings

36-year-old software engineer Shamus Young likes The Lord of the Rings. He also likes Dungeons & Dragons, so he combined his two passions and created The DM of the Rings, a webcomic in 144 parts.

Seemingly it took him about a year to complete. It’s great, obviously some understanding of both LOTR and D&D is a bonus in understanding its humour, but seriously: this should be published as a book.
