[[http://survivingtheworld.net/ Surviving the World]] was a daily, gag-a-day PhotoComic by Dante Shepherd (the creative pseudonym of Dr. Lucas Landherr), covering topics ranging from all over the map including life, romance, politics, science, etc. The comic is structured as a college class, and had the working title of ''101''. Each comic (termed a 'lesson') takes the form of Dante standing in front of a blackboard, with the day's lesson written upon it. The lessons cover a wide range of topics, from social issues to practical advice to literary references (notably to [[Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Lewis Carroll]]).
