Great, another thing by these two that I'll want to like, but will be unable to.

I think I am genetically precluded from getting "A Softer World."

You're not supposed to "get" A Softer World so much as you're supposed to be vaguely unsettled by it.

I like A Softer World.

Of course, that's because I like being vaguely unsettled.

You're not supposed to tell people how they're supposed to enjoy something.

I find that vaguely unsettling.

I do enjoy A Softer World, as I, also, enjoy vaguely unsettling things, like that short story. Good read, good post, good job.

It's just one vaguely unsettling thing after another.

Stop saying "vaguely unsettling!" It's making me feel definitely unsettled.

Panjandrum, your attempt to curtail our speech leaves me vaguely unsettled.

The overqualified letters they did were clever, funny and original.

As for the rest, I'm in the vaguely-unsettling-comics-don't-really-do-it-for-me-camp. I expect more from my comics than being slightly left-field and peculiar.

You can actually find a pretty wide gamut in the archives.
