    Surely I'm not the only one that finds the Mandelbrot Set terrifying? Sometimes I'm scared that it'll eat me :(

    Ahhh, how can you fear a mathematical construct that has its own song? http://www.jonathancoulton.com/songdetails/Mandelbrot%20Set As always, I love the comic! :)

    Hmm. Don't get me wrong. I like the goth look. But maybe Shoelace's new friend could experiment with some new colors at its constants. Maybe Li would be less scared of a less... umm. monochromatic fractal :)

    I just read all of your comics in one go, and I think you're brilliant. Also, the MandelFriend is scary. It looks like it's emanating darkness.

    theres a song written for the mandlebrot set? I just changed the lyrics to "do you know the muffin man" slightly. (so lies on the complex plane instead of lives of something lane, and mandlebrot set instead of muffin man)

    No, tommy two. The Mandelbrot set has an infinite perimeter, but a finite area.

    Mandel-friend also has an infinite set of mini-clones! (each of which has infinitely more mini-clones than its parent)
