Learn LISP from a comic book!?!

December 6th, 2004

“Ever wonder what makes LISP so powerful? Now you can find out for yourself- And you don’t even have to install anything on your computer to do it!”. So begins Conrad Barski‘s tutorial Lisp comic, Casting SPELs in Lisp. “Anyone who has ever learned to program in LISP will tell you it is very different from any other programming language. It is different in lots of surprising ways- This comic book will let you find out how LISP’s unique design makes it so powerful!” The online comic book tutorial has small bits of LISP code throughout which, when collected and entered into a LISP interpreter implement a simple text adventure game. This sure beats learning LISP from JCM’s LISP 1.5 Programmer’s Manual
