(Posting this 2007 comic in 2015)

I remember I made this comic because so many people were starting to think Evan, Milton, and Jerry were meant to be positive depictions of nerds. I wanted to show their individual flaws so that people could see that even though they’re depicted from a sympathetic point of view, we’re meant to be laughing at them and not necessarily approving of their behavior. It’s not easy to pull off, and every time I have a character do a “wrong” thing I seem to get complaints from people who think I’m endorsing their behavior, but quite frankly I think it would be pretty hypocritical to spend so much time making fun of nerd media and never point that satire around at nerds as well.
