If you made it this far down the page, you’re obviously a diehard Dilbert fan. You might want to consider picking up Dilbert 2.0, which captures a lot of Scott Adams’ greatest Dilbert comics. I know it’s on my Christmas wish list this year.

    Hilarious stuff Brent!
    Great that you have collected it over the years…

    It aptly summarises the state of PowerPoint presentations in this world.

  18. Johnny` says:

    If people pour all of their self-esteem into PowerPoint presentations, why don’t they proofread them more carefully? I’ve paid money for continuing education seminars where I wanted to hand the printouts back with all of the errors circled in red pen.

  19. Shamblesguru says:

    Would appreciate knowing what the licensing restrictions are on the use of these images.
    I’m an educator .. can I use them in presentations I give to teachers?
    … ’cause I’d like to use them .. brilliant

  25. John says:

    You are missing the one were Dilbert is describing a comic included in his presentation. But no one gets the comic, and its not funny (I don’t recall the specifics).

  26. pptninja says:

    I don’t recall that one. If anyone knows about this one, please send me a link to it and I’ll definitely add it.

  27. Martin says:

    Although this is from 1998 and you can actually see an OVERHEAD PROJECTOR in the last frame, its lesson is very Powerpoint-appropriate: http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/1998-01-10/
