Good writing, while missing in much of modern culture (regardless of medium), always struck me as particularly missing from much of the comic book genre. However, every now and then a creator comes along who far exceeds the genre’s norms, and this past week an excellent newspaper strip called Speed Bump by Dave Coverly found its way onto my computer screen.

The strip follows a similar format to Gary Larson’s Farside newspaper comics, and offers excellent single panel hilarity. Coverly does an excellent job of using limited space to convey his ideas in text and pictures. And now for two final Speed Bumps to wrap things up:
