If you like webcomics and especially enjoy humorous, grotesque, random comics that tell just about any story you could think of in a childish, sophomoric manner, then you must have heard of KC Green. The man excels at keeping things simple and yet ridiculously funny and has done so with various titles, like his current hit, Gun Show, and Horribleville, the precursor to the Gun Show that delved into the twisted pseudo-real life of KC Green.
I’ve yet to experience any of KC’s masterpieces in print but that won’t hold true for much longer as Horribleville Vol. 1 is now available for preorder! The write-up for the book says it all better than I ever could, so check it out and drop the bones to make sure you get your copy when they start shipping in February!
Started on Christmas of 2005, Horribleville was, indeed, a gift unto the world. A young KC Green (then 18) began writing about moments from his life, the worries and self-doubts we have about our abilities and having long conversations for your internal editor (as well as the physical manifestation of your writer’s block and your childhood pet cat).
DOES he ever find true peace with his inner struggle about his work?
WILL he ever be truly confident in his abilities?
DOES he ever stop feeling bad?
The answer to these and many more questions is “no”, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have fun trying to figure things out.
