WikiWorld comic: "Truthiness"

WikiWorld is a weekly comic, carried by the Signpost, that highlights a few of the fascinating but little-known articles in the vast Wikipedia archives. The text for each comic is excerpted from one or more existing Wikipedia articles. WikiWorld offers visual interpretations on a wide range of topics: offbeat cultural references and personality profiles, obscure moments in history and - as well as "mainstream" subjects with humorous potential.

Cartoonist Greg Williams developed the WikiWorld project in cooperation with the Wikimedia Foundation, and is releasing the comics under the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 2.5 license for use on Wikipedia and elsewhere. Williams works as a visual journalist for the US-based The Tampa Tribune, a daily newspaper in Tampa, Florida. He also has worked as an illustrator and designer at newspapers in Dubuque, Iowa, and Dayton, Ohio.

Haha ... nice! Just discovered them, and they're very funny.

Say, would it be too hard to provide forward and backward links for easier navigation through earlier issues? Going to the archives and searching for "WikiWorld" seems hardly appropriate in a medium that cqapitalizes, well, on wikification... 15:18, 26 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for the kind words. I'll check with the Signpost editor, to pass along your request. In the meantime, you can check out my User Page, where I'm archiving the comics: Greg Williams User Page --Greg Williams 13:46, 29 January 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
