Geek Squared

My BCU colleague Inger-Lise Bore got me into reading Piled Higher and Deeper – a web comic about being a research student. The humour is pretty geeky and quite niche on a good day, but the last three instalments have ticked all my geek boxes.

The three parter is about a trip to a comic-con, and as such is full of in-jokes about both research and media studies. Enjoy:
