TechPowerUp!'s Own Ben Clarke Starts Web Comic 'Front Side Bus'

TechPowerUp! is a source for a lot of things in the computer world. You can get reviews of the latest hardware, articles telling you how to build/mod said hardware, tools to overclock that hardware, an information repository, and a close, loving community. We're proud to announce that there is an addition to what techPowerUp! brings you. Forum user Ben Clarke recently started his very own web comic, which he called "Front Side Bus". The comics are co-developed with user "PVTCaboose1337", and are shaped by the ideas of several users. You can see the development team at work here.

The official website of 'Front Side Bus' is here. All of us here at techPowerUp! Hope that this comic becomes just as popular, if not more so, than Cyanide and Happiness.

is this going to be like a penny arcade thing? cause if so i'd just watch out for any type of copyright issues you may or may not run into

but keep it up anyway!

it is pretty popular since it's been around a few years now and its a really funny comic, its basically the same concept you have

so are these comic's if you go and read all the comics (theres over 300 by now) at least 80 percent of them have nothing to do with video games.the theory around them is that they play all types of games even if there comics don't involve games.. its basically a comic about 2 gamers that are best friends one is not so smart the other is very smart...

you have the same type of thing going and it'd suck if you got copyright problems an considering your going to be selling your comic they can nail you for it

Ah well, I'll manage. The majority of my money incoming from it (I hope) will be visitors clicking the adverts on the site. Each time someone clicks one, it gives me 25p. And I'm hoping for a few donations, just so I can buy me a pencil sharpener.
