PF Comics – Personal Finance Comics

Posted December 9th, 2009 and last modified October 31st, 2013

Announcing the launch of PF Comics – a new comic series featuring personal finance principles and stories, mixed with a bit of comedy and fun

We were inspired to begin putting together PF Comics after Brian Scheur’s Monster Spectrum of Personal Finance and Baker’s X-Men comic – it really got us thinking: Could we turn these pf blogger dudes into super heroes? We decided that we could, so watch out for their super powers and funny, educational and comical stories! What else would you expect from the dudes that brought to you the Top 25 Most Badass Personal Finance Bloggers? ;)

Some of the stories are based off recent blog entries and bloggers personal experiences. This week our feature bloggers are Baker from Man vs Debt, and Brian Scheur from My Next Buck.

Find the secrets and you could appear in our next comic

There are 2 easter eggs throughout the 2 comics that belong to other pf bloggers, find them and be the first to comment your answer to win.

PF Comic #1 – Debt Buster featuring Baker from Man vs. Debt

Baker’s trip to his Pearl Jam concert takes him on a special journey…

    Fred – It really is amazing the comic culture in the world. I remember collecting some of the #1 issues of Spawn and the likes, but I never got too into it after I started college.

    I do find the collectors items and investing aspect of it fascinating!

    Wow guys, this is freaking HUGE!! For a regular folk, the idea of getting oneself in a comic sounds pretty cool, but for comic buffs like Brian and Baker to be in a comic must be a dream come true!

    I like this comic culture I’m witnessing. Very VERY awesome!

    Best,

    You knock it out the park again guys. I am really humbled to be featured along with Baker. I love the explicit references to the other blogs as well as us being able to interpret other blogs from some of the writing.
    For example, when i first read the line, “Filthy Coin. Nice.” I immediately thought of FCN, Five Cent Nickel.

    Shows how much you can pick up from a single pane, eh?

    The first one has an easter egg reference to PT at PTMoney.com -with his 52 Ways To Make Extra Money – ebook that he just put out recently. The second one – could the “DINK” be a reference to http://www.dinksfinance.com/?

    You guys are an absolute riot.

    Seriously, aside from being flattered to be featured, the easter egg idea is amazing. Proves your passion for the blogging community as a whole to include that stuff.

    Thanks a million.

      @Baker – Your welcome bro. Hope this gives people some laughs and teaches some financial tips along the way!

      @Tom – Like your thinking, your close!

      @Peter – Great pickup there but a couple more to boot!

      @J.Money – Thanks dude appreciate your support. Yeah, teleported on over to Brian’s place from Sydney and back in my badass pimp mobile.

      @Brian – Love your insights there Brian, the interpretation ones are sending me totally out there with ideas. You and Baker were talking up the comics so we had to Comicify you first.

      @FFB – Thanks dude, appreciate your support.

      @Craig – Big ups to you bro for the support.
