Your Favorite Webcomics: Now In Cookie Form
Even though we may have our differences, I think we can all agree that people who bring cookies to comic book conventions are some of the best people around — especially when those cookies are delicious tributes to the comics themselves.

Check out Dinosaur Comics, The Adventures of Dr. McNinja and more in cookie form!According to Jones’ post, the whole project was inspired when she noticed that one of her cookie cutters bore a striking resemblance to T-Rex in Panel 5 of Ryan North’s Dinosaur Comics:

There’s also a tribute to Cricket, the huge-eyed, water-resistant cat in Johnny Wander:

And the pretty amazing tribute to Jess Fink’s Chester 5000 XYV (NSFW everything), featuring what I believe is the only image from that comic we’re allowed to post here at ComicsAlliance:
My favorite, though, were edible Machine of Death cards, representing the 100% accurate death predictions issued. Not only is it a pretty clever tribute to the book, but it also plays on every comics creator’s innate fear of death by fan:
