And yet, the strip is still good. It’s a new take on something classic. It works, even for all that the punchline is to be expected.
Perhaps that is one of the reasons I am such a fan of CYS – it takes standard little pieces of philosophy and merriment, and brings them to life through its own unique view.
People have compared it well to Calvin and Hobbes, which was know for doing the same, and I can’t disagree with that comparison.
My best friend is a huge fan of Count Your Sheep. He is a gamer (once a goth), fond of dark humor, intense games, and the like – but this is one of his comics of choice.
But Count Your Sheep? Simply perfect. I think he appreciates the fact that he can share a webcomic he likes with that environment. That there is a webcomic that transcends communities in that way.
So keep it up, Adrian Ramos. The strip is as good as when it started, and I think we can all appreciate that.
