Nedroid Picture Diary


Rating: 4/5 – Extremely strange humor with great characters

Nedroid Picture Diary was originally a miscellaneous gag strip, but eventually the author of the comic made it more or less officially about the wacky misadventures of a walking blue bird named Reginald and a bear-potato hybrid named Beartato.  The comic updates irregularly and has hover text on all comics except some of the earlier ones.  It also has instances of strong language, but is otherwise a relatively friendly comic.

What Makes It Awesome
Unlike many gag strips which rely on actual gags or references to popular culture, Nedroid instead relies n its well-developed set of crazy characters.  The humor is frequently offbeat and absurdist, but usually in a clever way.  The strip can be picked up and read from the most recent one, or reward the reader for going through the archives, although much of the humor can still be understood either way.  This humor can be a bit too strange sometimes, however.

My Thoughts
Nedroid Picture Diary, despite its irregular update schedule, is still my all-time favorite webcomic.  It gets this title for me because of its truly unique and consistent absurdist humor, something that I personally am a huge fan of in a gag strip.  I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in reading a funny webcomic as the read will definitely be worth it.
