We’re gathered here again for yet another webcomic review. Seriously folks, how many of these things are there out in the maze of tubes in the sky we call in the internet? Some might say more than we could possibly ever review… I might be inclined to agree as I have Ms. “deadweight before she has a gallon of coffee” Lamarche as my cohort on these.
Oh. Yeah. This coming from “gutteral noises and undeath before his caffeine IV”. Don’t even. And make a fresh damn pot while you’re up. Assbutt.
Jess looking for a new job aside, her insult is a great lead in to this week’s webcomc of choice…
Wait for it…
Yet another famous webcomic we’re tackling, Questionable Content follows the life of Marten and his friends in the Northampton, Massachusetts. This award winning webcomic is a story about love, indie music, vulgar robots and Coffee of Doom. You cannot make this kinda stuff up. Actually, the story is a lot more complex than most webcomics, and a little more than we want to give away here so you can check out the Wikipedia page.
Jess: This was one of those webcomics that once it was introduced to me, I could not put down. Now, I’m not one for being pro-hipster, but QC made me not care and just laugh instead. There is this amazingly wonderful mix of real life drama and outlandish situation that just harmonizes so well into one very addictive webcomic. I could not be more thankful for the frequent and consistant update schedule. Also, why aren’t AnthroPCs and actual thing yet? Let’s get on that NASA! Or…whoever’s in charge of that kind of thing…
Paul: QC is one of those webcomics that gets you hooked and never lets go. The story arcs are a mixture of complex and simple elements that will make you hate weekends and long for Monday with his 5 day update schedule. The art style has changed so drastically since he first started, but has only continued to become more fine tuned to the story Jeph is telling. Not to mention the characters are as memorable and quoatable as they possibly could be. I’ve also picked up some good music from suggestions in the comic. I guess I don’t really have anything bad to say about this one.
Vinyl Verdict (See what I did there…?)
Jess: QC gets 5 sentient pencils that can incriminate you in crippling ways out of 5. You don’t even have to like coffee or know obscure bands to get hooked into this comic.
Paul: Jeph and Questionable Content get 5 out of 5 hipster but I still love you pencils. This comic is consistently amazing and is well worth your time. Check it out. Pintsize demands it.
That about wraps up this week’s Breaking the 4th Wall, everyone. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go write an angry, threatening letter to the Starbucks Corporation in Paul’s stupid name. See if I can have him banned for life. The sweet screams of his terror and eternal misery will be ever so satisfying…
