January 2018 WordPress Comics … w/ CodeinWP

Hi everybody, hope you’ve had some good rest during the holiday season! Our team had a great time indeed, but now it’s time to get back to work. And a nice way to start the year is with a good laugh. Hence, this roundup of January 2018 WordPress comics!

We have five funny comic strips for you this month, with jokes on web design, WordPress themes, developers, and … tarot cards. Yeah, you read it right. This month we’re introducing a new concept inspired by the classic set of tarot cards + our own developer/WordPress spin on it.

But let’s talk less and laugh more, so here’s our first comic roundup of 2018! We hope you’ll have a great time going through the jokes, and do not hesitate to tell us your opinion in the comments section. In case you missed the December roundup, feel free to have a look here.

We’re happy to feature the work of two artists this month, João Santos and Christian Mirra:

I’m not sure if you’re familiar with how tarot cards work (why should you, anyway?), but we tried to re-create each one and find its WordPress-related counterpart. Here’s our first attempt.

So that’s our roundup of January 2018 WordPress comics. What do you think of them? Spread the word on social media and let other people enjoy them too.

In case you haven’t noticed, you can share each comic strip separately by clicking on the social icons that show up when you hover over the image.

On a different note, don’t forget that we are open to hearing your ideas; just drop us a comment in the section below and we’ll brainstorm it together. Wrapping up, we wish you a year full of joy and funny moments. Cheers!
