Fun Knees

Ever since I was a little Knowitall, I've been in love with Dan Piraro's Bizarro comic. Sometimes he's dark, sometimes he's political, but he's always weird. He's got a really cool blog where writes a little bit every day about the comic that he drew that day. It's interesting to get insights into his process and a view into the twisted mind behind the curtain.

If only Nicholas Gurewitch, who writes Perry Bible Fellowship would start his own blog. For now, we'll just have to enjoy his website, where he regularly posts new comics. Word of warning: dude is sick.

Oh yeah, don't forget about the genius of Jackson Brown's Cake and Potatoes.

***And that reminds me...

Have you seen the Garfield minus Garfield comic? Basically, Dan Walsh wondered what John Arbuckle's life would be like without his sarcastic cat, so he removed Garfield completely. The result is basically addition by subtraction. Instead of the same old unoriginal punchline, the comic becomes something tragic and haunting (and funny in a different way). Reminds me a little bit of Chris Ware's Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Boy in the World.

Dude, you're too kind. :-)

... and raising the bar of expectations very high.

I'll do my best to deliver.
