Computers are amazing all-purpose devices. Maybe a little too all-purpose.
Anyways, if you want to try out an electronic kanji dictionary I suggest http://jisho.org/kanji/radicals/. It’s free, easy to use and has an excellent database of both common and uncommon kanji. It’s my go-to resource when I need to translate something. Why not grab a kanji from a previous strip and see if you can find it?

Blue: This let’s you pinpoint the exact kanji you’re looking for.
Blue: There might be a hundred kanji with the 亠 radical but there are only two with both the 亠 AND the 力radical.
Blue: Even you can’t complain about results like that.
Blue: So, do you want to give it a try?
Yellow: I found a video of a 猫 stuck in a box!
