PhysOrg: PHD Comics hits the big screen
by Deborah Braconnier
September 16, 2011
(PhysOrg.com) -- If you are a graduate student, you are more than likely aware of the popular Piled Higher and Deeper, or PHD, Comics created by Jorge Cham. These comics cover the everyday struggles that scientists face while in grad school in a humorous and accurate depiction.

For the last year, grad students around the world have found themselves missing their regular comics, it now appears that creator Jorge Cham had a very good reason for the comic going MIA. He has been working with a team of grad students from California Institute of Technology, or Caltech, to create a live-action film where the characters of his comic strip come alive.

Oh hey, a PH&D movie. Nice!

(Sees VCU on the list for an October 16th showing, starts to make nigh-incomprehensible high-pitched sounds)

AW, HELLS YES!

This comic pretty accurately sums up my entire Ph.D research process.

Except replace 'day' with 'week' really. :-)
