Truck Bearing Kibble
February 9, 2008 11:04 AM   Subscribe

Truck Bearing Kibble is an intricately illustrated web comic clearly inspired by Perry Bible Fellowship (previously), albeit with more pop culture references. I recommend it for fans of both PBF and Cyanide and Happiness.

Two of my favorites: "Showdown in Clowntown," "Battle Fighter II"

YAY. I love PBF but there are never enough. Now look, MORE twisted time wasters!

It sure looks like the Parking Lot is Full.

You might want to check your second link there, BB.

This has been one of my favorite webcomics for a while now. The moonwalk one mentioned in the op is definitely my #1, followed closely by this one.

Yes, the Sock Puppet drama is similar to PLiF, but TBK is already getting its gags just plain stolen by mainstream comics. (Self-linky)

this one gives me considerable amusement.

Apparently TBK is the Dane Cook of web comics.

I like this one.

Meh. PBF is funnier. So was TPLIF.

The art is great.

Some of 'em are kinda...whimsically wry, I guess?

Most of the "jokes", though, are pitiful and uncomfortable, and not in the manner of deliciously black humour.

But the art! Definitely worth checking out for that, at least.

This one is pretty good

I think you misread wendell's link.

I think you misread wendell's link.

Oh yeah, good point. I did misread it.

TBK, I take back my Dane Cook insult. It'd be too bad if Mother Goose and Grimm was stealing off of semi-obscure web comics, because they have some excellent strips. I fondly remember one from my younger years that said "Disney on Ice" and it had Walt Disney's corpse on a giant block of ice. I think this strip was before he started archiving the comic online, because I can't seem to find it.

It's hit-and-miss. More hits than misses, though. Forsooth!

This one is good, too.

Funny, but those drawings are pretty elaborate for gag comics. Must take forever to do one, or else the artist has mad computer skills.

Or, possibly, the artist has mad computer skills, and it also takes forever to do each one.

Why do people seem to think that computers make art faster?

Because it makes publication so much faster?


In other news: I found In a Funk to be delightfully clever.
