I never 'got' Achewood. I considered a Buddy Bradley tattoo. Maybe I should get Zero from Beetle Bailey.

The images really illustrate the difficulty of summing up Achewood with a single panel.

Y'know, the pics that keep getting posted of jonmc have always reminded me of someone, but I could never put my finger on it. He's totally Buddy Bradley, maybe minus the flooby arms and legs.

You just figured that out, lekvar? It goes even deeper: my wife's name is Lisa and I'm friends with a guy named 'Stinky.' And I work in a used bookstore.

The first time I read Hate! I experienced what you might call the 'shock of recognition.'

I'd like to hear what Blazecock thinks about this.

How would you explain an Achewood tattoo in prison?

Although I knew (some) of the history of the user, I never knew the context for that name. That's great.

This was worth it, if only to discover the Great Outdoor Fight wiki.

That was my motto too back when I was a wage-slave. Now my one-man scooter ride to the edge of oblivion is non-stop.

I just begged Blazecock Pileon for a name-history like two days ago.

This may be the first and last time I will be topical...

Let's drown this baby up a notch.


Jon, you and me are just going to have to disagree on Achewood, my position is: I love it as much as I love Metafilter. Which is to say... All the fucking way.

Achewood sucks.

I never knew a web comic could be so polarizing. It's like the cartoonist eats Iraqi babies, but on the other hand they might be terrarists.

Achewood sucks.

That. Right there. That's what fucking happened to Stan Chin's gold star.

I'd get inked with Teodor if anything. I identify with him, especially when he is going to put Ray's heirloom merkin in the scrambled eggs.

that last sentence makes achewood haters furious as the dongs on a chinese food bill

I'd get an Achewood tattoo on my ass if it was free. Too bad I live so far from Oregon. No way I'll make it in time. Hell, I'd even post photos of it being done!

The cartilage head sequence is some of the best comic-noir.

If I were a badass I'd get Lyle on my chest. I'd probably end up with Philippe on my back, his oblong head stretched from shoulders to waist, that weird mouth of his doing that guppy little smile.

Panel 3, taking up all of my back. I must do this.

First three panels, repeated around the forearm. Last three panels, repeated around other forearm.

Actually, the car silhouette from this one would be really swank.

Wino, Blazecock: I didn't say it sucked, it just isn't my cup of tea. Too cerebral. I like my comedy smart but obnoxious.
