is a Web Comic
by our own troper Albertonykus
. He describes it as "an attempt at a web comic side project with maniraptors
. They express whatever funny or unfunny jokes that turn up inside my head, parody songs
, and occasionally provide a few legitimate scientific facts
."Check it out. Also now available in Askblog form.
