I read a ton of comics online. The medium of the Internet allows creativity to blossom and the art form to be spread to people that would have no idea it even existed. I enjoy the standards like Garfield, Peanuts and Dilbert, but I also love offbeat Internet only standards like xkcd, A Softer World and Penny Arcade. With all these great pieces of art to chose from I go back to Cool Jerk every time.
(I know I’m rambling, but I don’t care.)
As you can see Cool Jerk volumes one and two (Hodabeast and Chickadoowa, respectively) literally drip with kickassitude…(Is kickassitude a word? It should be. It really fits the situation well.) Each book carries the greatness and uniqueness that characters like Armpit, Puppy, Manhattan, Goremonger, and the rest of the gang could bring to such an awesome comic.
The cool thing is that my copies are even personalized. Check it out:
It’s a drawing of Puppy, my favorite Cool Jerk character, drawn into both books. How cool is that? That wasn’t even the topper to my day. The topper was my own personalized icon by Paul.
That’s me…and a Tor Johnson me.
- Paul Horn = great artist and friend of Caveman,
- Cool Jerk = comic strip you have to check out now (I command you),
- and today fucking rocked
(Sorry if this seems rushed, I’m half way through Hodabeast and I dreaded putting it down to write this.)
