Ten years ago, Matthew Inman posted a little comic on the internet that got… some popularity. You might have seen it shared by your Auntie Irma on Facebook.
Since then, Inman’s webcomic The Oatmeal has gone from strength to strength. If a decade of internet presence isn’t enough, The Oatmeal also has ten books in print and set crowdfunding records in 2015 for the card game Exploding Kittens. Inman also won the Eisner for Best Digital Comic in 2014 for his unique style which blurs the line between cartoon and infographic.
And now, it looks like Inman has scored himself… a movie deal!
Playing Overwatch? Want to hear why Jason will only play Pharah, and little else? Great! If not, then the second segment is for you! It’s chock full of webcomics nuggets, including Disney’s Delilah Dirk movie, Grumpy Cat’s Garfield-like webcomic, a thing called Yumi Cells, and two new coloring books from The Oatmeal. Jason really doesn’t like the whole adult coloring book fad and it makes for a fun end to the show.
