Call me crazy, but a comic about proto-programmers Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage running amok in the 19th century is a whole lot more exciting than one about some Canadian with knives in his hands.

I recently stumbled upon Sydney Padua’s gorgeous new web comic 2D Goggles. Drawn in stark black and white, it follows Lovelace and Babbage through various adventures, including their involvement in the financial collapse of America (sound familiar?). While primarily a labor of love at the moment, the comic is still incredibly engaging, geeky and wickedly witty.
