Weekly Webcomic Wrapup is setting up a tent

S. Prell, @SamPrell

So I checked my calendar today, and well, did you know we're almost halfway through September? That's just two months away from the release of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Time to go stake a spot in line at your favorite retailer and start camping out. Come on, waiting in line is fun! Don't believe me? Here's an example:

In 2008, I was visiting family up in New York for a summer vacation. I love the city, so there were many days I hopped a train and went to experience all the Big Apple had to offer. One early morning, on my way to buy tickets for Wicked, I noticed a large line starting to form outside the Virgin Megastore. I asked a gentleman what he was standing in line for, and he explained that Metal Gear Solid 4 was releasing at midnight, and Hideo Kojima would be on-site for autographs. Needless to say, I spent the rest of my day - and night! - on that Times Square street corner. I made new friends, played card games, and even messed with people who asked what I was in line for by telling them it was the American Idol audition line.

So go ahead, start your camp-out. You'll have each of these webcomics to keep you entertained, and you can vote for your favorite after the break.
