Bob and George
This strip is based on the Mega Man games. In fact, most of the graphics have
been lifted from Mega Man. This a funny strip. I mean it. Funny stuff. Quite a lot of
fourth-wall breaking, comic merging, alternate dimensions and all that jazz.
David Anez is good, so far as updates go. I can’t recall ever seeing him miss
There is a lot of swearing, though. If you object to mild swearing,
go read something innocuous, like Melonpool.
Bob the Angry Flower
A page-sized, usually B&W comic that appears every Friday. You’ve gotta
love the tone of this strip— very little real cause and effect, plenty of
flippant disregard for human suffering, and the occasional snippet of
self-deprecating sarcasm. It vacillates
between cerebral and stupid, and is not afraid to openly slander or violate
copyright. Bob’s adventures are the stuff of legend.
There have been sightings of swearing, gore and nudity,
but I’d still recommend it for pretty much everyone. It’s just that good.
I’m especially impressed by Bob’s Quick Guide to the Apostrophe,
You Idiots. You tell’em, Bob!
Big name strip. BoxJam
wears muu-muus and drives a boat because muu-muus and boats are easy to
draw. In fact, most of BoxJam’s
universe is organized around what’s easy to draw. BoxJam is married to Mrs. BoxJam, and has somehow sired Little
BoxJam and BoxJam-ina. His best friend has a sledgehammer for a face. I
sometimes suspect that his doodle is not as autobiographical as he claims.
BoxJam loses arguments with his wife, takes out the trash, and
contemplates death. He’s rather like a
grown-up, lazy, beer-drinking Charlie Brown. That, of course, is why we love him. Or like him, anyway.
Junior is imitating Boxjam here.
BoxJam’s Doodle is one of those AltBrand wieners.
Boy on a Stick and Slither
A very odd comic-- no plot, really, but very amusing. It's always nonsensical and it can sometimes be
rude, but I think it's a worthwhile read. It's disjointed. I recommend you read all the archives in one sitting.
BoaSaS often has a larger, more goal-oriented view of life, but I think they may be faking it.
It updates on Mondays and Fridays, and may contain offensive material.
Bruno the Bandit
Not to be confused with a certain
other Bruno. Ian McDonald’s daily B&W Keenspot strip is quite often brilliant (his
Offense!” storyline, especially), but also quite often cheesy. The fantasy landscape is riddled with what
would be anachronisms, if “fantasy” were a specific time period.
The villainous Bruno Bunkleyutz
roams the land with his trusty micro-dragon, Fiona, in search of excitement,
gold and more gold. It seems there is
no caper too crazy, no deed too dastardly, no… well, you get the idea.
Adventure. Or, at least, a reasonable
pop-culture-reference-laden substitute. MacDonald is guilty of some atrocious puns.
