Heidi reminds us that a new set of Zuda comics are up for December. She criticizes the interface for making the lettering hard to read, a sentiment shared by her commenters. She also does the research on what work the creators have previously done, a needed task for which we all should thank her.
Valerie already has her picks (link no longer available). I followed her advice and tried the following:
- “Avaste Ye”, the pirate stick figure one. I liked it, except the peg leg doesn’t work with the stick figures. It’s your typical webcomic, light humor suitable for wasting time at work, minimalist art, starring a geek with a nerd-fetish twist. Doesn’t seem to match with the DC brand, really.
- “Development Hell”, office humor. Except not funny. Pass.
- “Maxy J Millionaire”. A stuffed toy who looks like the kid from Where the Wild Things Are runs away. Whimsical and quirky, perhaps trying too hard to be both. Artwise, everyone looks flattened.
If those are the best to offer, well, maybe next round will be more to my liking.
