So I mentioned in our last show (found conveniently right below this post) that just about my only gripe with Legend of Bill was that it’s jokes are two â€œNewspapery.â€ As I was editing the final product, I realized I never really explained what I meant by that. And as I thought about it, I realized that it was because I really don’t know myself. I’m currently working on a little bit of thesis on the topic that I hope to be able to shed some light on the whole subject and bring joy to the world.
Until then though, I’m going to leave it as â€œit just feels that way.â€ I know this is a cop out but its the same cop out that I use when I don’t want to knock on a door, so I say the house is haunted.
In the mean time, I’ve recently came along Imagine This by Lucas Turnbloom. I’ve only read the last 50 strips or so, but so far this strip feels very â€œweb comicyâ€ to me. Which is odd since at first glance it looks like a very professional newspaper strip. Still though, there’s something about the hard edge the writing that strikes me as a prime example of Web comic hood.
Check it out, see what you think. Either way, I think you’ll like it.
