It's funny. Trust me."''
-->--'''Description'''

[[http://cominerds.smackjeeves.com/comics/1089398/trials-of-nerd-1-14-11/ Cominerds]] is a webcomic by {{Smackjeeves}} user pwii. The comic started in 1-14-11 [[WordOfGod Largely due to ]] pwii's admiration of {{Fanboy}}s. It follows the adventures of [[TheDitz Andy]], [[TheComicallySerious Dom]], and Bob, Two comic nerds (Andy, Bob) and one casual comic reader (Dom). The comic starts out as TwoGamersOnACouch with comics, but quickly moves on to a sort of RandomEventsPlot. Three other characters are shortly introduced: Chloe, [[DeadpanSnarker Rose]], and [[CulturePolice Ed]]. Rose is obsessed with manga, and Andy is obsessed with comics; which leads to some interesting 'debates'.

Originally, the comic was just about the friends talking and going on with their lives, but it quickly adapted RuleOfCool and RuleOfFunny as laws of physics. Cominerds is most notable for having several gags in one comic, the comic-page format constantly, and updating on time (in the sense that there's about 1 comic a week, not over a day late).



!!This webcomic contains examples of:
* ArtEvolution: Comics 1-20 are all colored blue in GIMP, but afterwards, pwii has moved on to color.
* TheComicallySerious: Dom
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Subverted, and then lampshaded with Bob.
** May also be an AuthorsSavingThrow.
* TheDitz: Andy. Only he would use a band-aid to heal broken bones.
** He used [[http://cominerds.smackjeeves.com/comics/1200509/decide-326-5-23-11/ two]] band-aids.
*** Not to mention he lost the second, and was doing fine without it until someone pointed it out to him.
* DoubleStandard: Quite a few lampshades. One comic was even named "Double Standards".
-->Chloe: "Isn't [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale that]] wrong?"
-->Rose: "Yeah, well, guys can be submissive without being shallow".
**
--->"I'm a lady. Ladies are allowed to ignore equal rights if it benefits us."
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Often. When Chloe starts to feels bad about it, Rose observes:
-->"[You wouldn't get suspended for beating up Andy]. You're a girl and he's not. You could take a chainsaw to his FACE and it would be funny."
* GeekReferencePool: Inverted. Pwii even makes subtle references to other Smackjeeves comics he likes (or did himself).
* GirlNextDoor: Subverted with Chloe. Andy dreams of a girl next door who likes comics, but Chloe is obsessed with manga. However,it turns out Chloe is not even his neighbor, just heavily implied to be. His real neighbor is [[MoralGuardians Ed]].
* HeAlsoDid: pwii's other works are somewhat darker.
* MoralGuardians: Ed is basically a {{Flanderized}} version of [[UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode Doctor Fredric Wertham]].
* OneOfUs: The site has 9 fans. Who do you think made this page?
* RecycledInSpace: It's TwoGamersOnACouch...WITH COMICS!
* ReferenceOverdosed: Every. Page.
* RunningGag: "I don't think [girls who like comics] exist..."
* SecretPast: Andy. As Maria pointed out, he's read ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'', and at least knows about SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and Poison Ivy, while sworn to read nothing but {{Marvel}}.
* SomeoneThinkOfTheChildren: There was actually a two-parter that was named thus, involving a {{Moral Guardian|s}} gone KnightsTemplar.
* StrawmanPolitical: Dom does this to [[FalseDichotomy three]] political parties, by comparing them to comic book characters.
** Andy and Chloe do this to a bunch of comic book / manga tropes when they first meet, in a battle of sorts.
