What Did I Learn? Today’s comic under review is Joe! by Michelle Billingsley. The About page informs us that this comic is based on Joe, a wise cracking ten year old getting into trouble based on “imaginatively-exploited everyday shorelines,” which is pretty accurate up to the current comic of #112. However, the rest of the [...]

This is a copy of the review I did, minus the star rating and with a few edits, for Comic Fencing back as far as 2008, which seems to have gone offline sometime in the last few months. Calamities of Nature, by Tony Piro, is about the absurdities of life and ourselves. Politics, world events [...]

What Did I Learn? Today’s comic under inspection is The Optimist by Tom Pappalardo. It is an interesting little gem of the gag strip variety. There is the occasional cuss word. There is some word play. There is some political observation. Some regular life silliness and some sarcasm. And there are podcasts and songs and [...]

What Did I Learn? Today’s review is on a short comic called Strange Quark by Dallin Durfee. It’s a gag a day comic revolving around the nerdy humor of college physics professors and their students. For context, this review is coming from a comics blog that talks about making comics to be published online, which [...]

What Did I Learn? “People looked at me with pity…they handed me this disease…I can’t beat this.” That’s how this sidescrolling webcomic, Body & Soul by Matthew Greene, starts. To round out our first impression, a small narration box tells us this is Anezka’s home in Prague. The images are almost abstract and every click [...]

What Did I Learn? Hopefully,
you’re already familiar with Mouse Guard by David Peterson. If not, the basic setup is that mice have carved out an area that’s fairly safe from predators. There are various mouse settlements which Guard Mice patrol the paths and territory between using tiny swords and other hand weapons. These aren’t [...]

(There are other reviews at the very bottom, as well.) Despite being the size of matchbooks, some of [...]

What Did I Learn? If you read the comic above, you might find yourself wondering why the guy in the helmet (Captain Remarkable) is complaining that his BB toe is shot off… To be fair, it is a strange jumping in point to introduce you to 2816 Monument by Mark Leutke. But I wanted to [...]

What Did I Learn? Balderduck is a gag comic by Antonis Vavagiannis. It’s an English version of Kourafelkythra, which you may want to check out if you can read Greek. What is Balderduck about? Well, balderdash means nonsense. Balderduck is probably a very appropriate name for this comic and the official answer to what Balderduck [...]
