Hey folks, it’s that time of week again where Jess and I choose to coexist and write one of these delightful webcomic reviews in the newest installment of Breaking the 4th Wall. Of course one of us needs to kick this off today or else these things would never get done. True story.
WHAT??!?! No. You do not get to pull the “lazy” card on me, while YOU’VE been out gallivanting, I have been here making the change-over to the new site layout more smooth and don’t you tell m-
Yap yap yap… I’m sure you get points for the witty retorts. Anyways, today we’re reviewing…
All New Issues by Dani O’Brian and Bill Ellis
All New Issues is a webcomic about love, poverty and a comic book store. This comic all is a pseudo-spinoff of Danielle Corsetto’s Girls with Slingshots with the character Robyn being Hazel’s cousin. While there is that tie in, the webcomic hasn’t had many crossovers and stands rather strong on it’s own.
Jess - I had started this one up a long time ago and let it fall by the wayside for some reason. Don’t know why. This thing sucked me in like Robyn sucks down free beer. Needless to say, it made the rotation. The art style kind of feels reminiscent of Danielle Corsetto’s early work on GWS so the spin-off thing really sells. It’s campy, fun and although this webcomic is still young, it’s headed for big things. I love it.
Paul – After stumbling on to this webcomic, it didn’t take long before I was hooked. The art style and characters are very much like Corsetto’s Girls With Slingshots, but because the cast is smaller you end up getting attached to characters lickety-split (yes, I just said that. Don’t make a big deal out of it). Not to mention the comic book and video game references are just downright delightful. The webcomic is still new though and the characters and stories are still being developed.
Jess – I give this comic 4.5 broke, unemployed, comic book-related pencils out of 5. I can’t wait to see where this goes!
Paul – All New Issues get’s 4 out off 5 Lobster Boy licensed pencils. This webcomic is definitely worth a read.
I’m sorry I keep subjecting you poor people to what Paul thinks is “intelligent, cute banter” but alas, everyone else had lives and didn’t have the time to spend to review these things with me. Anyway, go check out All New Issues. That’s at least something you won’t be sorry for.
