    Dinosaur Comics are totally hilarious! A+ for giving Ryan props!

    I think this comic makes me laugh more consistently than any other.

    We have regular impromptu readings at my house, whether my fiance likes it or not.

    Of course, the best bit of the comic is the meta-text and the mailto: link text, which you may miss out on in the book, although I can only imagine this is either included or offset by other, more awesome (and sexy!) book-only content.

    This has long been my favorite comic.

    @3 – in fact T-Rex claims he owns The Angriest Dog In The World. http://www.qwantz.com/archive/000393.html

    Kaiza @6 makes a good point, does the book include the alt-text, RSS feed title, and the comment e-mail subject? Even if I’m not feeling the comic itself, the combination of the 3 bonus lines is always enough to make me chuckle.

    This is without a doubt one of the most consistently hilarious comics I’ve ever read.

    Dinosaur Comics is published every weekday, not weekly. This makes it that much more amazing.

    Sounds realistic to me. Everyone knows cuttlefish make terrible neighbors.

    Fortunately, them’s good eating. Solves the neighbor problem.

    Yeah, I got the book from Ryan at MOCCA last year. The book contains the alt text under each strip, but no comment email subject lines. The only thing in the book not on the website is an intro by Joey Comeau. Even so, I still love having the book; it’s a great coffee table book.

    Love it.

    Love it so much, I made a guitar pedal out of it:

    Wow, David Rees is hilarious! So original!

    This reminds me of the LA Weekly strip (from college days): The Angriest Dog in the World

    Sure enough, do a search for it and Wikipedia has an entry and it, of course, links to Dinosaur Comics.

    David Rees? I thought we were talking about Max Cannon.

    Of all my favorite web comics, this is the only one my wife consistently laughs at as well. If nothing else, the look on T-Rex’s face as he exclaims something in the second panel cracks her up every time.
