Sums up their personalities pretty well.
Eddy: I can achieve anything
Edd: there’s a logical way to achieve what I want
Ed: there’s nothing standing in my way
Eddy hopping over the fence indicates his willingness to “cheat” the system, or to take a shortcut. Much like his schemes, it might end up being more work, but in his mind, cheating is the best way to get ahead.
Edd goes the neat and logical way, he’s straight forward. BUT, note that he closes the gate behind him rather than leaving it open. He’s incredibly meticulous and even if it’s more convenient to leave it open for anyone coming in behind him, he has to leave things neat, tidy and as he found them.
Ed is also is straight forward, he in fact is using the MOST direct route. But this route is one no one else would consider because it seems completely nonsensical. Which sums him up pretty well. The fact that it works for him is also fun to note. In general his earnestness and determination carries him through situations that most people would be stopped by.
I’m more astounded by the way Edd turns into Eddy mid-animation in the first gif
So during my recent (current?) commission run, client asked me to draw a picture of Sandra from the webcomic Sandra on the Rocks, from a time when she dressed up as Emma Frost without realizing it. (It makes sense in context.) Anyway, since I’m a fan of the strip, I thought it’d be fun to draw and it was!
So I hope y’all like it. :)
Yesterday, the nominations for the Eisner Awards, often considered the Oscars of Comics, came out, honoring five comics in the digital comics category. But there are dozens of amazing webcomics out there that the Eisners have completely ignored.
Eisner noms aside, this is a great list of #webcomics - I’ve read a few! As long as AG is on your lists- I’m happy :)
In the Eisners’ partial defense, I’m pretty sure a lot of these comics aren’t submitted to them with any regularity— and they need to be submitted to qualify. You can argue that’s a flaw in the system, but it does mean that not all the comics on this list were exactly snubbed. Still, it’s a great list.

I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.

No matter how many times I look at Myers-Briggs classifications, they really don’t make sense to me. People are rational about some subjects and irrational about others, they’re extroverted in some contexts and not others, judging is sensible in some situations and a poor response to limited information, and the test seems painfully easy to lie to, to the point where I don’t trust my answers to be genuine even if I’m really trying to make them genuine.
And some personalities really are worse than others. Self-acceptance is important but so is self-improvement.
But don’t just take my word for it. David J. Pittenger has his reservations, too. The most interesting of his findings, to my mind, is that up to 50% of test subjects can take the test twice in five weeks and get assigned two different types. Now, surely any test has got to allow for the idea that personalities can change, but that many changes in five weeks? Kind of calls internal validity into question, don’t you think?
I think we latched onto Myers-Briggs at some point because it was simple enough to grasp, complex enough to look like an answer to the mysteries of personality, and its gently “judgment-free” nature (thinking isn’t better or worse than feeling!) could make us all feel accepted. Nice and all, but when it comes to the mysteries of personality, I don’t trust anything that looks too much like an easy way out.
