Comic: The Cafe Dilemma

This is Pi Day #001

This is the first one, and it was fueled by some frustration over a real experience. I walked into the cafe and bought a coffee and as I paid and then turned round a couple people had sneaked in and taken the last seats, dropping off their jackets to “reserve.” A few weeks later I was scribbling out some concept drawings for the “dad” character in a new comic and this idea had stuck in my mind. Next thing you know you’ll need to reserve seating everywhere… hey, they do it at the movies now, why not for a casual coffee?

The kid had yet to make an appearance in this strip. I was still working things out. She showed up a week later tho.

Do you Like Web Comics?

Hey! Me too! What a coincidence.

This is Pi Day is an independent web comic about fatherhood, running, video games, science, art, independence, integrity, imagination and just generally ... family adventure. It is created, written, illustrated, and promoted by Brad Salomons from a quiet suburb of a remote Canadian city called Edmonton, Alberta.

Looking for more pi? We regularly celebrate at the great circle of math, science and technology culture. This is Pi Day has been calculated as the product of one geeky dad, one curious kid, and an irrational volume of corny dad jokes.

New full strips are published on Saturday mornings (and shorts, appearing randomly whenever I draw them). This is Pi Day will always be free to read on this site, but if you enjoy it please help me out by sharing the link on social media or supporting in other ways.
