Don't Forget To Validate Your Parking is a webcomic written and illustrated by Mike Le, the American screenwriter, film producer, and comic book creator. The webcomic was officially launched on December 11, 2007, during the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike.[1] Published roughly once a week, the webcomic is loosely based on the author's experiences working in Hollywood. Its readership grew when Cory Doctorow posted a link to the comic strip on Boing Boing.

The only visible character is an illustrated version of the author sitting behind his laptop and on the phone. All supporting characters are expressed through dialogue, usually as a voice on the phone.

On August 5, 2008, PC Magazine listed Don't Forget To Validate Your Parking as one of the Top 10 Best Unsung Webcomics.[1]


Don't Forget To Validate Your Parking was briefly published in Written By Magazine, the official publication of the Writers Guild of America, West. Its run was ended due to the strip's controversial take on the entertainment business. The webcomic was also published regularly in the humor section of The Behrend Beacon, the official student publication of the Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.[2]
