I've lately been trying out the Bruno Daily Times. Not tremendously funny -- it's a realistic serial story which contains humor, but mostly only humor of a wry "real life" type.
There are some cons to it: making a character a novelist is often the short road to pretense, and the (male) artist's intense focus on his (female) character's sexuality occasionally feels the faintest bit exploitative (although I appreciate the sympathetic view of polyamory).
But on the "pro" side? Engaging story, quality art, and characters who are nonstereotypical and keenly-observed (the creator clearly approaches them with a great deal of generosity and care).
The pros have it: thumbs up!posted by jbushnell at 3:04 PM on October 31, 2000
