Brilliant comics, unknown artists
November 1, 2007 12:41 AM Subscribe
Online nerds have known for years that webcomics are often much more daring and interesting than newspaper tripe like Beetle Bailey and Hagar the Horrible. An unknown kid from Fresno by the name S. Sakurai has brightened many of our days with his frequently brilliant work. His ongoing strip Muertitos
is a Beetlejuice-esque afterlife gem, and Gorgeous Princess Creamy-Beamy
is mostly about skewering anime cliches, aliens, lesbians, and junk food.
I was hooked as soon as one of his alien characters described our land vehicles as being "powered by exploding dinosaurs." Highly recommended for any Bloom County/Calvin and Hobbes fans, particularly those who grew up playing 8-bit Nintendo and watching Sailor Moon.
