WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Single panel gag strip. Black and white. Think of it like The Far Side meets Dilbert. Jokes pretty much tackle anything from cubicle humour, pop culture to the quirkiest sides of human nature.
Guy named Aaron Scott. The first comic we can find on his site is December 30 2010. But according to his About Page, he's been at it much longer. Aaron shares a very vulnerable story about his aspiring comics career. We empathize and are glad he has found a venue for his work doing webcomics.
WHAT'S THE LATEST?
If you're going to quit a job, might as well do it in a way where the door doesn't hit you in the rear on your way out right?
HOW DOES IT ALL START?
Benefits plans are highly overrated anyway. As webcomic creators and publishers we don't work for the perks as is right?
HOW OFTEN DOES IT GO?
The attempt is three times a week. It's more like once or twice. But this has been around since 2010 so we really have to give kudos for the longevity and consistency of quality from the beginning.
It's not easy pulling off a one panel gag so marks for that. Plus the art style being black and white with lots of shading is unique in a great way. Really stands out. The gags are really well thought out and character designs are approachable. And it's always nice to see families giving thanks for their food.
WHAT'S NOT SO GOOD (IN YOUR OPINION ONLY OF COURSE)?
As referenced earlier, Aaron's bio makes us feel sad. We get the inkling that every sad looking character in this work, along with the shades of gray, might be a reflection of his life. As much as we appreciate the openness and vulnerability, we would suggest being much more upbeat and not so self-deprecating. The work is great, so get some swagger in there!
Don't be like this guy:
WHAT DON'T WE KNOW WE DON'T KNOW?
We're totally dating ourselves here, but beyond the movie The Karate Kid, Ralph Macchio starred in a gem of a movie called Crossroads. The movie was clearly the inspiration for this strip and we totally loved it (check out the video clip below for a taste of face-melting guitar-shredding awesome)!
WHAT DO YOU REALLY THINK?
Steve Vai is the original guitar hero. Ok, maybe a tie with Jimi Hendrix. Prepared to be awed.
WHAT SHOULD WE READ ON TABULIT LIKE THIS?
Here's some more dysfunctional office humour for you if you are into that sort of thing.
