Funniest chess comic strips

Chess has been a theme for several comics through the years. Here are our favourite chess comic strips!


XKCD has a number of hilarious chess-related comics, but if I had to choose one, it had to be this one. The thought of taking a glued chess board on a rollercoaster just cracks me up!

2. Buttersafe

This comic by always makes me smile. It reminds me of how I first got into chess. The thought of two battling forces crashing into each other on a 8×8 chess board is what lured me into the game and imagination was a big part of it.

The Perry Bible Fellowship has to be one of the best online web comics out there so I was very excited to see they did one about chess as well!

4. Foxtrot by Bill Amend

Playing chess is a running joke in the Foxtrot comics and I really recommend the series as a whole. This one hits home for me!
