Ramen Empire

This was originally our comic strip for the PSU college newspaper. They decided they didn’t like it after a few months, so we set up a website and kept making it anyway. We update on Wednesday & Friday.

One part college humor, one part gaming humor, with the occasional piece of Fantasy thrown in, Ramen Empire is a constant learning tool for us — one that we hope you find entertaining.

Bartholomew Klick studies English and Chinese at the same university. He lives under a bridge near the north side of town, and eats unfortunates who try to cross it on foot.

Bartholomew Klick’s fiction has appeared in the Machine of Death I  anthology, the first Arcane anthology, Coyote Wild, and in Earthbound Fiction’s Sparks anthology. He edits Conjurings magazine, and is an editorial apprentice at Nightmare.

His favorite web comics are Girl Genius, Penny Arcade, Mangled StarePVP, & Short Packed. Obscure jokes pulled from these materials will make Bart giggle like a six year old girl in a pit full of kittens.
