Stupid Comics


I love bad movies. Not “I never really connected with the main character” bad, but “I can see the wires on the paper plate UFO” bad. (Check out the pics of my office. I, like the 40 year old virgin, actually have a framed “MST3K:The Movie” poster on my wall.)

So it’s no wonder I also love bad comics. And there’s plenty over at Stupid Comics. Here’s just a small sampling (click to enlarge)…

People With No Lives Open Hong Kong Disneyland

This from a Disney press release regarding the new Hong Kong Disneyland’s opening:

Derrick Johnson was so elated when he beat thousands of people to become the second person to charge into the brand new Hong Kong Disneyland that he dropped to his knees, raised his arms and bowed to worship the Sleeping Beauty Castle.

O… K…

Robert Sher, from New York City, and Thomas Taffinder, from Orlando, Calif., came armed with sophisticated audio visual gear and a mental map of the park memorized from a virtual Internet tour.

I can just see these two quizzing each other… “OK, Tom, is Space Mountain east or northeast of the Software Pirates of the Caribbean?”

What keeps these grown-ups hooked on to the cartoon characters? “They keep on reinventing different things, unlike Universal or Six Flags,” said Sher. “The idea of Disney doing another foreign country, with the Chinese Communist government – going for business like that is just amazing.”

Yeah, EuroDisney turned out great! (Think EuroKrustyLand…)

Dougie Robertson, a 35-year-old businessman from Edinburgh, Scotland, said his favorite thing about Disney was the cheerful workers, or “cast members” in Disney lingo. “The cast members make people smile. It takes people back to their childhood. Smiling is a big thing,” he said. “I believe in the magic.”

Pretty much what I’d expect from a grown man who continues to call himself “Dougie.”

Yet Another Cartoon That Didn’t Work

Welcome to yet another edition of…


I’d actually already earmarked this cartoon for the blog when my college roommate emailed me asking what the deal was with it, thereby confirming my suspicions.

OK, the joke here is that they’re outside. No one gets the speaking character’s joke because it’s an “inside joke” and they’re all outdoors.


This one’s a real heartbreaker too because I spent a lot of time on the art. Four guys sitting around a campfire at night in the woods? Yeesh! I must have gone through at least two different gray markers just shading the damn thing.

Sometimes I’m OK with a weird or obtuse reference and I know a lot of people aren’t going to understand the humor, but this one seemed so simple at the time… Damn my feeble brain!

Anyway, there it is. Much to my chagrin, there’s more to come down the road…
