There’s a roster of webcomics I adore because they’re smart and funny, and Subnormality, by Winston Rowntree, is high on that list. He subtitles his comic, which mixes fantasy, science fiction, slice of life, and true storytelling, “comix with too many words.
I think I write comics with too many words. I’ve been reading books about graphic storytelling and trying to understand how to create images that do the work of words.
I drew these comics for my little cousin while toying with the idea of creating an illustrated zoo of imaginary animals, but ultimately, I figured that what came out of the crayons was probably a bit too creepy and esoteric for a 3-year-old.
Still working on it.
Creepy and esoteric, maybe. But also hilarious.
