BiblenautsA friend of a friend of a friend started drawing a Web comic a couple of months ago.  Biblenauts follows two time-traveling visitors through the stories of the Bible, starting with the first chapter.

The author isn’t exactly an orthodox believer—as his “About” page jokes, “The views and opinions expressed in this comic strip do not necessarily reflect the opinions of God or his affiliates”—but Biblenauts is occasionally both thoughtful and moving.  Here, it contemplates the creation and destruction of the world and the meaning of free will, suffering, and mercy.

The comic strip This Modern World by “Tom Tomorrow” is usually pretty liberal (if you’ve never read it, suffice it to say that “Archives are currently closed for repair. / In the meantime,the past few years of TMW can be found at either Daily Kos or The Nation.”) but sometimes also pretty funny.  The current strip pokes fun at “slacktivism” and the NSA, which many from across the spectrum can unite on, and also at the current administration’s prosecution of the war itself, proving that there are some liberals still willing to be anti-war when a Democrat is in office.
