About the comic

Energy Brain Comics is a webcomic -- absurd, badly drawn, and extremely nerdy. All comics are in English except for some in which French, Mexicans, or others appear. New comics are added five times a week; if possible, every Monday through Friday, but there may be exceptions.


Every tenth comic is a guest strip drawn by another artist (although the anniversary comics #50, #100, etc. are specials).

Each comic numbered with a repdigit (except #11) is a so-called "Songs Illustrated" comic in which a picture explains what certain song titles "really" mean. As there aren't many repdidgits after #111, I'll throw in an occasional "Songs Illustrated" strip whenever I feel like it. #122 is the first of these.

Most comics with a number that has a specific meaning deal with the related topic. (E.g. #23: The 23rd Century, #24: 24.)

Comics ending with a 5 are usually What If strips.

About the authors

My name is Sascha. I'm a senior software developer from Cologne, Germany (hence all the nerd stuff in the comics). I've been reading comics of various genres (and desperately tried to create my own) since I was about eight years old; I started out with Asterix and still love the classic albums that were written by the late René Goscinny.

My current favorites include, but are not limited to, Simpsons and Futurama comics; Spider-Man, Thor, X-Men, Daredevil, and other Marvel superheroes; Superman, Batman, and more DC superheroes; stuff by Alan Moore (V for Vendetta, Watchmen); the works of Scott McCloud; and the Scott Pilgrim series by Bryan Lee O'Malley.

As for webcomics, I regularly read and enjoy User Friendly, Questionable Content, XKCD, and Ctrl + Alt + Del.

My son Leon has only started to create comics less than a year ago, but he's far more talented than I'll ever be (but he still has more practice on paper than on the Wacom). His favorite comic books are Simpsons and Futurama, too. Many of the ideas in EBC (including the title) were his, e.g. the prankster robot RM01 (whom I borrowed from Leon's own comics), Fat Zap's name, and many more. He also has drawn the guest strips #10, #20, #30, and others. You can find more of his work in the Other Stuff section.


No trees were harmed in the making of this webcomic, neither for paper nor for pencils -- all strips are created using a Wacom graphics tablet.
