My personal top 20 from #1 to #499 – Places 1 to 10

On Sunday, I posted the places 11 to 20 of my favorite Sandra and Woo strips which have been published so far. Here is the top 10 of my absolute favorites.

10. [0119] The Departure

Sandra and Woo: [0119] The Departure

There’s no other strip which shows the attitude of all the main characters, except for Woo, in such a condensed way as this one. I really like the escalation from Sandra’s rather normal conversation with her father to Larisa’s eyebrow-raising one and finally to Cloud’s outlandish one. Ye Thuza is partially inspired by my own mom who’s an avid RPG player and active participant of renaissance fairs. I’m sure she would be equally mad at me for forgetting the rope when going into a dungeon. Compared to Ye Thuza, my mom’s kung-fu skills are seriously lacking, though.

My personal top 20 from #1 to #499 – Places 11 to 20

499 Sandra and Woo strips have been published since 19 October 2008. Since the 500th strip is not yet finished, I compiled a list of my top 20 Sandra and Woo strips so far to shorten the waiting time. I excluded [0498] The Return Of The Empress from the list because that one should be still very fresh in the memory of all readers. I will post my personal top 10 on Wednesday or Thursday.

20. [0430] Software Engineering, Now With Cats!

Sandra and Woo: [0430] Software Engineering, Now With Cats!

This is the only Sandra and Woo strip which has been posted on a large number of other websites. I already thought that it will become more popular than a normal Sandra and Woo strip, but I didn’t expect such a spike of interest. The number of daily visitors on our website almost doubled on 19 November 2012 and again on 29 November 2012. I think our version of the famous “Swings” cartoon wouldn’t have worked half as well without the funny last panel.

I could not embed the video because the preview image kinda ruined the joke. There is also an alternative, more subtle version. The video was created by Sqorck.

My neighbor’s mad parking skillz!

As you can see, my parent’s neighbor has some truly impressive parking skillz. He parks like that all the time and apparently without any trouble according to my mother. As a rather mediocre driver this is almost incomprehensible to me.
