Fleep, the comic
Writing about web page http://www.shigabooks.com/shigabooks/csfolder/fleep.html
Jason Shiga majored in Maths. So, kids, you might see this as a sort of inspiration about what to do with your maths degree. I mean, how to be rich and successful and stuff.
Jason Shiga now works in a library. Ok, scratch that about inspiration…
But Shiga does make good comics. As for his maths past, it certainly shows in some of his work.
Fleep about a guy who gets trapped in a phone booth. A phone booth, that has suddenly and inexplicably become surrounded by concrete. All the words around him appear to have turned to gibberish, and all he has with him are the phone, a phonebook he can't read, a few coins, a pen, a book in Russian, and a note which he also can't read. Plus, he's running out of air.
He's also extremely smart. Can he escape? Can he figure out how he got trapped in the first place? Well, to say any more would be to spoil things.
Go. Read. Now.
