John Kovalic, the author of the web comic Dork Tower, apparently feels the same way about the media coverage of Curiosity as I do. Click to see the whole thing.

Dork Tower busts ghosts

By Phil Plait | May 6, 2011 2:09 pm

As you might expect, I am not a big fan of ghost hunting shows. Stopping every ten seconds and dramatically whispering "Did you hear that?" is not exactly the best way to run a scientific investigation.

So I’m pleased to see satires and such of those programs, and I think the web comic Dork Tower does it pretty well here.

Man, there’ve been a lot of good sciencey skeptical web comics lately. Keep ‘em coming, folks. It’s one of the best ways to spread the word.
