    quero a minha caricatura tb!!

  15. 2115

    Great, very nice and funny comics!

  16. 2266

    Nice graphics..great job guys.

  17. 2417

    oh man, this keeps getting worse and worse…..
    but hey you can’t say anything negative, because the ego of the “artists” gets hurt….

  18. 2870

    Nice graphics but not funny at all.

  19. 3021

    Maybe for those of us “on the outside” of these inside jokes you should include liner notes, or even a blog entry, about the topic that the cartoon is trying to make a satire out of. It could be an interesting way of creative a productive conversation and discourse about topics in web development, or just a way for your readers to be in on the joke. I personally don’t get the “Jessica Talk Show” one with the Cat snatching the twitter bird away at all. :(… I don’t like being on the outside.

  20. 3172

    so funny , i like it

  21. 3323

    piracy makes poor people happy, the blue bird makes a poor cat happy. You are very positive!

  22. 3474

    just gr8. the ipad one is awsome! good job! keep them coming!!

  23. 3625

    I don’t get the Jessica strip. Is the punchline just the fact that the Twitter bird gets eaten by the cat and it didn’t have time to say anything?

      Lay off, they’re web developers, not comedians

      • 3927


        While that is a good point, surely these are supposed to be comedy? And so should be reviewed as such. If web developers don’t want criticism of their comedy – good or bad – they should stick to web developing, and avoid cartoons.

          “they should stick to web developing, and avoid cartoons” – KAPOWWW –
          Thanks for clarifying Thor’s point.

  24. 4229

    This is how i see the twitter comic, same as how myspace was eaten by facebook that’s how twitter will be eaten by something else. Stuff comes and goes, nothing lasts forever. That’s why the “…next” in the last slide is there…

    I might be wrong, but that’s what i think the creator had in mind when he created this comic.

  25. 4682

    Cartoon #8: Jessica Talk Show

    LOL! fantastic, Ricardo Gimenes is amazing. This is the perfect combination with SM!
    I love this cartoon now and waiting to see more!!

  27. 4984

    Nice and funny., clean cartoon. personally I like it, even there’s some pictures I don’t understand, strangely the cartoons made me feel comfortable to be in this site., what software you’re using to draw it Ricardo?


  28. 5286

    from JORDAN, Awesome

  29. 5437

    Great…..very good. Thanks…

  30. 5588

    More Busty Blonde cartoons!

  31. 5739

    Where are their arms?! OMG! Other than that, they’re pretty good =)

  32. 5890

    Pretty funny… LOL :)

  33. 6041

    Please, make a animated version of this Cartoons!

    It’d be so cool! :-D

    • 6192

      I can’t agree with you more. Ricardo is the best artist with the funniest sense of humor x-) Keep going, Ric… You are the best!!

  34. 6343

    Prossssssto……………o4en krutoi!

  35. 6494

    they’d be better with arms. i know artist like to add their “thing” that sets them apart, “oh, that’s the guy that draws characters without arms”, but it just doesn’t work. the boobs on the boss lady look like her missing arms are crossed most of the times. just always include the arms and it’ll be much better, trust me brother :)

  36. 6645


    You’ve got extreme skill man! You can make a guide – how to draw so awesome characters and comics – I would like to learn it :)

    Your fan,

  37. 6796

    funny, creative and full of great illustration skills.


  38. 6947

    Really funny and very cool 8)

  39. 7098

    So funny :D

  40. 7249

    The artist can remain, but whoever is writing these things needs to be replaced.

  41. 7400

    creative with Funny :-)

  42. 7551

    What’s wrong with using Microsoft’s Internet Explorer?

  43. 7853

    Just love it ;)

    It will be good to put every picture on a separate page. Thus people can comment every single cartoon and also will be easier to share a specific cartoon via Facebook or Twitter.

    Awesome, I love them!

  46. 8457

    Excellent & so funny!!! :-))

  47. 8608

    Cool Comic Stuff. Great Smashing :)

  48. 8759

    i like how you hide the arms and hand so you dont need to draw them if you dont “need” to draw them, NOT. thats pretty lazy and it doesnt look good. plus i dont think these are very funny at all

  49. 8910

    hahahah they are all really funny and hats off to those who did all of em :)

    thanks for sharing :D

  50. 9061

    do you get money from apple for these cartoons? ]> (

    • 9212

      yes, i´m sure they get some grants for this…bad publicity is better than no publicity.
