So Google+ is the new “hot” social network that everyone’s jumping aboard, though it’s not without its flaws—chief among them being that Google continues to insist that people use their “real” names, even when there are many good reasons why people might not want to. Putting that controversy aside, the site has many benefits, and some comics creators have even found the site’s “about” page to be yet another creative outlet.
A user’s about page on Google+ has a space to put up some pictures, presumably pictures of themselves, but instead Scott McCloud and Stephen Hitchen have used the slots as comic panels, telling (very) short stories.
Aside from being really informative about what they do (pictures really do speak louder than words), it just looks cool. Now I’m just staring at that empty slot on my own Google+ page, and pondering the possibilities.
