Unemployed Comics

Friends, given these troubled economic times, it should come as no surprise that Pete the Hedgehog is not alone in the comic world in depicting the plight and/or ennui of the jobless.

Some of you may be aware that Peter Parker (aka Spider Man) was recently fired from his job as a photographer.  Details here.

The relatively new newspaper strip, Dustin, features an aimless 23-year-old living with his parents and bouncing around various temp jobs.

As far as webcomics, there is Breadwinner. It’s about an anthropormorphic piece of toast and his cupcake sidekick.  (I linked to an earlier strip because later ones have gotten a bit weird and off topic.  And if you are wondering how a comic about a piece of toast and a cupcake can possibly get any more weird and off topic just click forward through the strips, you’ll see.)

Similar thematically to Breadwinner, but more earthbound, is Unemployed Dad.

Also somewhat amusing is the appropriately titled jobless looser.

If there are any more comics you’d like to share about the jobless, unemployed, or even just underemployed, post them to comments section of this post.  Maybe I’ll start an unemployed comics webring or something.
