First off, I just noticed the Sam and Max personal comic generator, and thought it was pretty rad. It’s a nice little thing for folks to play around with, and though my own skills aren’t enough to produce any works of art from it, it may still be worth giving a whirl.
The Sam and Max comic itself is somewhat interesting. I’ve never played the Sam and Max games or known anything of their characters, so this was my first introduction to them. As such, areas of the comics are rather unsurprisingly like being tossed into the middle of a bizarre dream.
That said, they are fun characters, and I like the wacky absurdity of it all. So maybe I’ll have to hunt those games down and give them a try.
Speaking of crazy stories, I’ve been liking Spells and Whistles of late. This was one of my favorite comics, and then it vanished, and then it came back in a different form, and then that stopped and the original started again. So yeah, chaos.
Perhaps as a result of all that (in addition to a change in writers), the plot has gone stark raving mad (not, albeit, necessarily in a bad way), and changed gears several times.
Fortunately, regardless of where the plot is going, the characters stay fresh and the jokes stay funny, and that’s really all I’m asking for.
