Best. Strip. Ever.


I love how he knows how to use words

I love the mix of self-awareness and complete obliviousness and even just plain I-am-a-hell-of-cute-kid-ness that Philippe shows in panel 5. It is so true that kids feel shit like that, and have some concept of that things have always been a way since they were around. It is funny.


Chris Onstad is getting good at using language. And that is saying a lot. I want a shirt!


Get Your War On Stage

Wow, a stage version of David Rees’s fabulous political satire Get Your War On is being put on by the Rude Mechanicals in Austin, TX.

I think I could never go to a stage production of GYWO , because I’d die laughing. I think i’ve loled (lolled?) more often at Rees’s comic than any other, at least on a per strip basis. (Yeah, that means you, Achewood and DC) I don’t know if he started the clipart webcomic revolution, but he does it best. It must be the prolific cursing or something, businesspeople cursing into phones is hella funny, especially when done with a sarcastic tone. Yeah! Thats what Rees does so well, the sarcastic tone. The curses are just added to make it funnier.

Also he is just biting. Not clever (I mean, clever is so OVER! get with the program people-who-are-not-David-Rees). I mean, he will not spare anyone or anything, reader or subject. That is what I’m talking about. I need to go to Austin to see actors dressed as business-people screaming sarcastic curses into telephones.


PBF references self

Check it out, Zuthulu is watching the aftermath of Rusty’s hit for Bobby!

This is new insight into Perry Bible Fellowship, perhaps it’s universe is coherent in some (non)sense, afterall. I’m sure he just needed something to put on the TV screen, and figured sports might fit, and hey, why not the sports strip he just drew, and hey why not the brawl? Brawls make ya hungry for brownies. Think they’re magic brownies?

By the way, the latter strip, titled “A Hit for Bobby” is one of the more brilliant gags in the collection of brilliant gags PBF’s author Nicholas Gurewitch has offered us. Its definately his characteristic move, showing us a wholesome scene in which you can’t help but feel for the antagonist, and then watching the morbid fantasy play out.

  If you liked that strip, you may also like “The Happy Brothers” and “One More Day”.

Oh—while PBF is on the table, you’ve seen that commercial for like Heineken or something where the dude joins the superhero-league-thingy, and his superpower turns out to be turning shoes into bottles of Heineken? Well do you think they stole that idea from “Super League”? Either way, poor Stratos!
