Well well well, loyal fans and followers, it would appear that this humble little webcomic article has reached its 30th review! 30! That’s more articles than years old I am! Oh bugger. I’ve walked into a rather nasty age joke, haven’t I, young bossman Paul Ungar.
I mean, I wouldn’t go as far to call you old or anything of the sort, but how does it feel to be as old as trees? Not any trees in particular, but the concept of trees. Wait! It must be easy to remember your Social Insurance Number seeing it’s only one digit. I got piles of these. It’s probably best that we just continue with the review.
Need I remind you I’m working for free? You are so very lucky I value you as a person so much or s%#t would get explodey all up in here… Then I would heartily chuckle and dare you to find that “more efficient chimp” you keep threatening to employ in my stead. You won’t! ‘Cause I’m just too gorram awesome! Not to mention you’d totally miss me.
30TH B4W!!! WOOOOOOO!
So, for this auspicious occasion (omg I spelled that right the first go!) we have chosen:
Customer Servicer by Pat and Steve
Probably one of the most relatable comics you will ever read, this fairly recent webcomic tells the story of newly employed convenience store clerk Maxine and her ridiculous coworkers as they trudge through customer service life.
Paper or Plastic?
Jess: Huge thanks to Paul for introducing me to this little gem. I cannot get over how it can be so accurate and so hilarious at the same time. Everyone’s been in this type of job and we all know how depressingly crappy customer service can be. I think it’s absolutely awesome to see a comic that takes those experiences and makes them funny. I find myself laughing; thinking to myself: OH MY GOD! THAT IS SO TRUE AND TOTALLY HAPPENED TO ME! which makes it even funnier. Sure, the art style isn’t the best I’ve seen, but hey! The story r0xx0rz b0xx0rz AND it’s in color! Oh, and the knight? I frakin’ love that guy. Cracks me up.
Paul: While the comic is a little off the walls at times, Customer Servicer really hits the nail on the head when it comes to the craziness that is retail. There isn’t anything I would consitute as a full on story… but a series of random events that don’t stop being entertaining. While the art style isn’t as polished as other webcomics we’ve reviewed in the past, it definitely wins points for being in colour.
Cash or Debit?
Jess: I’m giving this comic 5 leaky slushie machine pencils out of 5. Yes, a perfect score. I can relate and LMAO sufficiently. Well done, generically-named Pat and Steve, well done.
Paul: I’m giving Customer Servicer 3.5 out of 5 non-refunded non-barcoded pencils. It’s a relatively new comic so I’d like to see how this one changes with time. Good job folks.
Is That Everything?
Well, that about wraps things up for this installment of Breaking the 4th Wall. It’s kind of a big deal to have put out thirty of these awesome reviews and we hope to keep on churning them out week after week for you folks. And let’s throw in a generic comment about Jess’ age to finish this off… (Listen, ya little whipper-snapper. When I get my hands on your I’ll give you such a wallop…) Something something old. Done.
