Encyclopedia > Adam@home

Adam is a comic strip by Brian Basset, which was first syndicated in 1984. It follows the life of Adam Newman, a stay at home dad as he juggles his family and "career." The comic's humor mostly focuses on workplace style humor like Dilbert, however it emphasizes the foibles of working from home, computers and commuting. This article is about the comic strip, the sequential art form as published in newspapers and on the Internet. ... Adam is a comic strip by Brian Basset. ... 1984 (MCMLXXXIV) was a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... This article is about the Dilbert comic strip. ...


Originally, Adam's life did not center around his stay-at-home dad life, but since Basset moved the center of the strip to his home life, he has also changed the title of the strip to Adam At Home (or Adam @ Home). However, not all the papers that syndicate Adam refer to it by its new name (except for the Sunday editions, where the first panel of the strip lists it).


Characters

Adam Newman: Adam Newman is a stay at home dad. He is self-employed, running "Adam Newman Enterprises" from his home computer. A caffeine fiend like none ever seen (and worse), he spends his days at his computer, occasionally slacking or using his baby son Nick as an office assistant. He dreads summertime when his older children will be home tearing up the house and begging him to take them out. When not at home, he's usually at his favorite coffee shop, typing away at his laptop. He keeps practically everyone in his district in business, especially the baristas. The examples and perspective in this article or section may not represent a worldwide view. ... Coffee Shop is a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers from their 1995 album, One Hot Minute. ... A MacBook A laptop computer, or simply laptop (also notebook computer or notebook), is a small mobile computer, which usually weighs 2. ...


Laura Newman: Adam's wife, she works at a book store. She's Adam's salvation every day when she comes home from work to take the kids off his hands. She is astonished at how addicted he is to channel surfing and coffee shop fare ("one espresso addict in the family is expensive enough," she warns Clayton). Channel surfing is the practice of quickly scanning through different television channels or radio frequencies in order to find something interesting to watch or listen to. ... Espresso brewing, with a dark reddish-brown foam, called crema. ...


Clayton and Katy Newman: Adam and Laura's elementary school children. They are your standard brother and sister. Clayton, mischievous and energetic, takes great joy out of tormenting his little sister (and sometimes vice versa). Together, they like to bug their dad to do things with him or break up their constant (and noisy) arguing, much to his annoyance when he's just trying to get some work done.


Nick Newman: Adam and Laura's baby son. An energetic but not always happy kid, he keeps his dad company and serves as an occasional assistant to Adam, sometimes as a paperweight or an answering machine.
