  2. 2

    very cool! cute little “Smashies” :)

  3. 3

    Excellent! This browser just incredible (:

  4. 4

    Was there something funny on that page? I don’t get it

    • 5

      This is a good description of what we feel for IE6 and its brothers about website rendering. Funny!

  5. 6

    nice !!! :D Like it.

  6. 7

    Very funny!

    I would like to see bigger images :P

  7. 8

    Lol… The little IE character is funny… “WHAT!?”

    Can’t wait for the series…

  8. 9

    I like it :D

  9. 10

    This should be fun. Best of luck Ricardo! (tip: ignore the haters)

  10. 11

    wow , that’s very funny and good step from smashingmagazine for comic web cartoons ;)

  11. 12

    What’s the license on these? Would love to be able to share, like XKCD. #1 is fabulous!

  12. 13

    Me Likez!

  13. 14

    this has to be a lot better than your fail comic.

    • 15

      I wondered how far down the comments I’d have to read before I saw one like that. Cartoons/Comics are meant to be subjective. Each to their own and all that.

  14. 16

    Aww! The little ie character almost makes me like the browser. Almost.

    Thanks guys ;)

  18. 20

    Very good initiative! I’ve been longing for a smashing comic! Please make sure to put them up in a good manner so one can read them through a rss-reader or similar on the cellphones. I read all my comics on my phone while I’m on the subway or the likes.

  19. 21

    I don’t like IE5 6 7 8 either.
    I do like cartoons.
    I sneak around quite a while.

    But: I don’t get it.

  20. 22

    I like is cool!

  21. 23

    Fabulous !
    I can’t wait to see next scenes !
    I guess it all will be tweeted ?

  22. 24

    I like it!

  23. 25

    Cartoon #1 very funny.
    You should add “Boo”, to make it funnier.

  24. 26

    What the heck is wrong with you guys? Are you all zombified by the G trend? I am looking stupefied how an incredible large number of “followers” are turning normal people into Demi, or Semi Gods. It;s just a magazine composed of articles gathered form around the world. If you were to Google it, you’ll find just as that or better.

    I see nothing funny guys, sorry.

  26. 29

    ummmm…. i have nothing to say but one word in dinosour:RAAAAAWWWWWRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!♥

  27. 30

    someone please tell me what is funny about this.

  28. 31

    So this is a web design magazine? The page is broken in FF 3.6 on a 1024×786 monitor. The right edge of the comic overflows & gets hidden.

    • 32

      Yes this is a web design magazine. Site demographic would entail designers with FAR HIGHER resolution and therefore they may extend their site resolution higher….solution, buy a real monitor.

      • 33

        Thanks for the advice, James. Designing for a 1024 pixel width monitor is pretty standard. Many people still use that size monitor. Especially on laptops and netbooks. For a site that specializes in web design, it’s kind of a silly mistake to make. Telling people to buy things to fix the website’s problem is a lazy snob’s excuse – it’s the same as a web designer ignoring their IE users and telling them to install FF.

        And I’m in agreement with the majority of readers here – the comic’s not even funny!

          I have to agree. 1024px is standard. And its standard for SMag, too. They could provide solutions for higher resolutions but they have to make a version for 1024. Definitly.

          The IPad is funny, but i dont get the IE one.

  29. 35

    jajajajajaja, just love the second one… XD

  30. 36


  31. 40

    Very cool idea. Keep going !!!

  32. 41

    Friday is April 2, not April 3… :-)

  33. 42

    damn gud !!! :)

  34. 43

    haha.. the ipad one is so trueeee!

  35. 44

    Funny and at the same time so true :)

  36. 45

    Okay, that iPad one is so true it’s not even funny! Keep up the good work, guys!

  37. 46

    Great! Now you’ve killed IE6 am sure he is going strait to HELL! :)

  38. 47

    Is ‘adpaters’ written this way on purpose (should be ‘adapters’ ?) or have you misspelt it?

  39. 49

    The adpater thing, looks really like a mispelling, rather than fun being poked. What was it meant to be? Otherwise, nice. :)

  40. 50

    JAjajaja.. so fun.. wonderfull comics.. very nice style.. good sens of humor and the best design magazine ever..

  41. 51

    the iPad one is pretty cute, but the #1 cartoon literally took me 15 mins to get. its not very noticeable that the hand in the 5th frame is from IE. and the last pilot one is just kinda poorly designed. whats with all the negative space in the upper left hand corner? i get its a cartoon, but its a cartoon on a design blog.

  42. 53

    Smashing is just awesome, keep up the creative stuff

  43. 54

    Aamazing :)

  44. 55

    Everybody loves iPad, except me :D

    Really awesome stuff’s here. Keep going!

  45. 56

    I love it!

    These characters have a name ? why you don´t give them a name, to every one of them; with the help of your readers. They have been created by you, however since they have been online, they belong “some way” to your audience, Don´t you think so ?

    • 58

      I think the characters are the company founders and employees himself. See the illustration in “About Smashing Magazine”….
      As for the cartoons some are a bit way too geeky for me, but some are really cute!

  47. 59

    Cool and absolutely creative.

  48. 60

    I love it. Really really good.

  49. 61

    lol… vewwwy naaiiiceee…. :D

  50. 62

    Nice, i love it
