Josh Fruhlinger is better known to the internet as the Comics Curmudgeon, and for something like 15 years, he's been riffing on the oddities of newspaper comics at joshreads.com. If you want to know which Mary Worth character got into a fight with a cat, Josh is your guy.
Today on Follow Friday, Josh talks about four of his favorite people he follows online:
- Someone who's an expert in a very specific niche that he loves: Numble, @numble on Twitter
- Someone he's followed forever: Katie Notopoulos, @katienotopoulos on Twitter
- Someone he's jealous of: Annie Rauwerda, @anniierau and @depthsofwiki on Twitter, @depthsofwiki on Instagram, and @depthsofwikipedia on TikTok (and here's the skeleton picture Josh mentions)
- Someone he just started following: WHH Haters Posting Their L's Online, @WHHHLsonline on Twitter
