I’m an avid reader of comics. Graphic novels to weeklies and everything in between. There are some that I wish had more reach simply because they’re insanely quotable and sometimes have a real message behind them, not to mention muesum worth art. Here’s at least one I think is worth checking: Boy on a Stick and Slither.

It’s the Drinky Crow Show.

I’m not sure if you watch it, but I have to say I love it.

The show originated with the comic strip Maakies and everything about the strip is great. The style mimics that of early 20th century comic strips, right down to the small bottom border with a few landscapes and a second comic (it’s called a topper if you feel like looking it up). The drawings are reminiscent of European engravings and ukiyo-e paintings. The material is dark and very violent. All the characters are very lovable anti-heros. I highly recommend looking into both of them, don’t worry I’ll drop some link bombs for youse guys.
