''[[http://hijinksensue.com/ Hijinks Ensue]]'' is a geek-oriented thrice-weekly updated webcomic, written and drawn by Joel Watson.

* ScheduleSlip: Since it relies on topical humor, there's no backlog, so whenever something comes up in Joel's personal life that keeps him from drawing a new strip (which is often), there's no new strip.

* WriteWhoYouKnow: The main cast is Joel and his two real-life friends.
