It’s tough identifying as female and as a nerd. It’s especially tough when you have to be both together, at the same time. Over the years, being one of those two things has aged better than the other. If you’re here reading this in 2017, you know which one it is.
You've doubtless come across webcomics such as Cyanide and Happiness, or The Awkward Yeti, on your timeline at some point. The self-contained stories and gags, along with the simple, cute art make for easy sharing, and they're a great combination of hilarious and morbid. These comics, and several others like them, all rode the wave of a new kind of humour that was finding it's way on the internet. They tackled awkwardness, depression, and anxiety in self aware ways, with an absurdist layer that made them funny rather than depressing.
