The best kind of flare

Posted Mon, 4/5/2010 by Dave

The advertising for 3-D television has become really, really ridiculous all of a sudden. It bugs me on a fundamental level because up until now I’ve been able to take a DVD, watch it on my television, pop it in my computer and play it, and then use Handbrake to put it on my iPod, if I feel so compelled. 3-D throws that right out the window–and makes me wear glasses, to boot. I kind of look forward to the day I have to wear glasses (because then I’ll look uncannily like Gordon Freeman) but that time is not now, and Nicholas Cage’s 3-D face is not the reason.

I have to wonder, will the web go 3-D? I’d imagine so–eventually. But until they demonstrate a compelling reason for me to view anything in 3-D on a regular basis, Apartment 4H is staying firmly in two dimensions. Any more and Pestilence looks even more like a beanbag chair covered in hair than he does already.

Actually, I beg to differ…

THIS edges it out by a small margin.

For those of you interested in such things, I played Dragonforce’s “Fury of the Storm” on loop while I was making this strip. The results are self-evident in panel 3.

And remember to vote for us at Top Web Comics! We’re going to try our damndest to edge onto the front page this month. Also, the incentive is totally awesome, if you haven’t seen it yet.
