postmodern photo-caption comic. (Descriptions are nice, protocool)

That's just wierd.

And, yes, a description would have been helpful.

Well… points for trying. The format is certainly well-done, if not particularly original. While I haven't heard of (and therefore haven't read) NFG before, this strip seems to fit in with the "We don't believe in typecast genres. Our artists make their own brand of fiction" attitude.

I don't know; something about the idea of "too good for genre" always bugged me.

On a related note, some sort of contextual navigation would be nice. Having to hit 'archive' each time you want to look at a different comment kinda sucks. 'next', anyone?

I don't get it.

Maybe I'm not smart enough.

Maybe the comic sucks.

Maybe they're fucking with us.

My money's on the last choice.

If Jack Handy were suffering depression and had a box full of old photographs...

Cynics R Us

It was fine and a few made me smile. Thanks.

Good. Very good. Like kaibutsu referenced, it is somewhat reminiscent of Jack Handy, but like the title says, "softer."

My favorite: Ducks.

Go to Le Pip bookstore on Ave. Richemont near the Port de Clichy, buy all the 10 Euro adult postcards and caption them. An adult world experience with like results.

Descriptions are nice.
There's a minimalist vibe
On here today, though.

Some of them I really liked, and some of them I really didn't understand.

Wow. Further proof to me that my sense of humor is way off the Metafilter norm. I think A Softer World is, well, consistently brilliant. Funny, painful, beautiful.
