The main cast of Dumbing of Age.

Dumbing of Age is the fifth webcomic created by David Willis, and the first to be set outside of the Walkyverse continuity. Essentially a reboot, it features all of the major players of Walkyverse as they make their way through college, "minus fifteen years of baggage" and the fantastical/sci-fi elements seen in previous comics. [1]

It currently runs seven days a week. In addition to the strip's website, it is also available through the Comic Chameleon mobile app operating on the Android and iOS platforms.
