Define "Discordian in nature", please.

I figure the term is pretty open ended.  That's part of why I was asking.  It insteresting to see how peoples definition of Discordian varies.

It doesn't need repeating but, for completeness, Transmetropolitan. Make sure to read it, it's awesome, inspiring and funny. Short description: Gonzo journalism in a cyberpunk/futuristic setting.


Hmm cyberpunk. That makes me wonder about the logical conclusion, Brassmetropolitan?

Okay so I have no idea what Discordian in "nature" means, but here's the ones I keep fairly current with:

XKCD
Johnny Wander
The Oatmeal
Meek Comic
Lego Robot
Dead Winter
Rice Boy
Oglaf
Questionable Content
Order of the Stick
Erfworld
Pictures for Sad Children
Subnormality
SMBC
Chainsawsuit
Hyperbole And A Half
Dr. McNinja
Nedroid
Wondermark
Dresden Codak

...Your mileage may vary.  And if you're going to fail at life and read as many of them as I do, keep them all in one folder so you can open them all at once and have your daily comics out of the way in a few minutes, as opposed to several hours.

I thought the One Over Zero series (also on keenspot) did pretty well in the "mindfuck" department, questioning the reality tunnel and such. Even though it was written by a Christian dude.

If you're looking for lol23pineal stuff, try Triangle & Robert. They're pretty awesome, and have slightly more plot than Pokey the Penguin.

I love Axe Cop. It's not just because I think it's funny (especially the Ask Axe Cop section where Malachai answers readers' questions) but because it's such a perfect window into how a kid's mind works. Unibabies, spontaneous mutations caused by exposure to other species' bodily fluids, a trex with minigun arms, talking dogs that shoot lasers out of their mouths, a cop who dresses like a cat at night so he can sneak into "bad guys'" houses and chop their heads off with his fireman axe... and all without a hint of self-awareness or irony or any attempt at being artistic or edgy.

It may not be "Discordian" in the 23FnordSNAFU sense, but if you want something that will challenge your basic assumptions about reality, you really can't go wrong with reading a story written by a 5 year old.

BECAUSE, I'M INTERESTED,

          but have heard of almost none of these titles, are these in print or online things? you're in pdx, where do you find this stuff?
