@achewood There are only five Wodehouse books on my special Wodehouse shelf?! As Jeeves himself might ask, "Where in the fuck are the rest of them."

It is just me, or does he look like Captain Planet in that first panel?

Mind you, Captain Planet probably wouldn't bugger his cat and write a poem about it.

There are obviously much worse things than PvP out there, but if I didn't cave easily to peer pressure we wouldn't have this thread.
You know, this is the first time I've ever heard of this comic. I can see how it could be terrible and I'm sure for people who've been aware of it for awhile there are probably a ton of built up hatreds and I understand that. But in all fairness I have to say that the basic gag and the ending of this little arc are at least a little clever. I'm not gonna seek out more or anything, but I have to come clean: I smirked.

Honestly, PvP has improved a lot in the last few years. After hitting the ten year mark he decided to actually start improving his craft again, and while it doesn't always hit the mark you can still harvest a few chuckles a month.

    • this is where I jot down random ideas

The fact that Kurtz can diatribe circles around nearly anyone, myself and A-CAP included, is a big part of it, yeah...

Still, the bulk of it is that the strip is the Garfield-bland assembly-line comic-as-equation approach to "edgy" webcomics.

Garfield with dick jokes and console gaming.

And with Garfield, it's somehow less grating as Garfield is written for six year olds and grammas.

Without syndication concerns, there's NO excuse for such a rote approach to comic stripping.

I should mention that the "...from the dominant one of the planet." line was in the Keenspot newsbox today. I guess that is what they call "the sell"?

You know Hathor, maybe you have a point, our society does have some rather messed up values....



.... oh wait! You're back to patronisingly (or is it matronisingly?) insulting people whose worldview even slightly differs from yours! Revolution baby!
