Divi: the easiest WordPress theme to use

Divi: The best WordPress theme of all time!

With over 901.000 downloads, Divi is the most popular WordPress theme in the world. It is complete, easy to use and comes with more than 62 free templates. [Recommended]

WPMU DEV now offers DEV-related comics and cartoons that you can use for free on your websites and social networks. Plus, regular caption contests are coming soon (with some great prizes, for info).

Introducing The DEV Pixels: a comic book section entirely dedicated to WordPress developers, designers, and techies in general. In short, comics made for you! And also designed to help your agency or independent business (more details later in this article).

Along with our award-winning plugins, hosting, The Hub, and other perks we offer, we thought we might as well add comics. And, like many of our plugins, we allow them to be used on your WordPress sites (or social networks, applications, etc.) free!

The comics will be regularly updated on our site, emails and social media.

So, do you want a preview of what we have in store?

There will be nuggets like that ...

Some will make you laugh like an emoticon; others will make you cringe like you do when you encounter a console error. At the end of your long day working remotely, we'll be sure to have some that you enjoy.

A quick glance

The DEV pixels are still in development, but here's a look at what we've got so far and what you can do with the comics. You will also see how they can benefit you beyond just a laugh.

Download or share comics (and how you can benefit from them)

Like I mentioned, you can upload or share any comic you see! It's completely free and they're all up for grabs. All we ask is that you log into WPMU DEV by doing so (e.g. The source: wpmudev.com).

Sharing these comics on your website, social networks, emails, eBooks, and newsletters provides additional engagement and fun for your users! Content that includes cartoons receives a lot of attention.

As stated by Bob Mankoff, former cartoon editor of The new yorker:

“If a picture is worth a thousand words, a cartoon is worth 500.

“Cartoons are fun that way - no other art form can communicate an idea faster or more effectively. Humor disarms, connects, then communicates in a fraction of a second. In a world where every eye is bombarded with thousands of messages daily, cartoons grab attention and get your message across instantly.

To use the comics, you will see the option of Share ou Download the thumbnails below.

To hire

We have several ways of approaching comics. One will be our caption contest (which I'll talk about next), and another way is to leave your comments!

Every comic has a comment box, so you can let us know what you think about it, give your opinion, add a fun gag - whatever!

Plus, you'll find them on our social media accounts (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter), where you can engage, share, and love them however you want.

Caption this! DEV Pixel legendary contests

In addition to the usual comics, you will soon be able to have fun! we will have Subtitle contest, where your participation will earn you Hero points and a chance to win by having the best and funniest legend.

Oh, and we're going to give away some amazing prizes (free hosting, anybody?).

Natasha has just graduated from college and has been working as a WPMU DEV illustrator for almost two years now. She is responsible for the best banners, graphics and illustrations found on the WPMU DEV blog and social media.

Plus, we've got a talented team of writers and developers behind the scenes to help us know what's funny and contribute (when they're not slacking off on Slack).

We hope you are drawn to DEV pixels!

DEV pixels is a great new feature that we know you will enjoy. We also hope you enjoy sharing the comics where you feel good, even if that includes printing and snapping on your MacBook.
