Love this one. The second to last frame undid my Catholic upbringing.

Yeah, weatherbot is my favorite one so far. It literally made me LOL.

Although I have trouble explaining to people exactly why, Gunshow has become far and away my favorite webcomic. Brilliant stuff.

You know, K.C. Green is a complete dynamo, and I almost feel like he would be better served with a more detailed post. Guy has produced so much awesome stuff and he's only like 23.

His autobiographical series Horribleville
His reader-submitted Custom Comics

I've been a KC green fan since forever, happy to see this on the Blue.

I can't believe KC Green has never been posted before. He's bff's with Metafilter BFF Kate Beaton.

Okay, I just read way too many of those, and I'm not even a webcomic fan, generally. Thanks for posting!

LOVE this comic. The Anime Club chronicles are the best ever.

Can't think of the last time I burst out laughing at a web comic! This guy is going to get even better as he gets older.

This would appear to be another one of those web comics that cannot be understood or appreciated without some sort of prior knowledge or brain wiring I don't have. Like Achewood. Oh well.

These did nothing for me. I must be out of his demographic. Oh well.

KC Green is a webcomics superman. I am consistently amazed by his ability to put out such a huge volume of high-quality work.

I thought heh. They were all pretty funny, though.

I wasn't enjoying the Gunshow strip, thinking it was the style or as others have said, not my demographic or whatever. Then I read some of the Anime Club long pieces, enjoyed them, but tried the very same Anime Club short strips and didn't enjoy them.

Conclusion: it's short comic strips I don't like.

Ha ha. That one hit my funnybone just right.

I stumbled across this a while ago and have been checking back regularly ever since. For some reason I never thought to post it here. Damn, too late...

The Anime Club bits remind me very strongly of Evan Dorkin's "Eltingville Comic-Book, Science-Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and Role-Playing Club" comics, which were also made into a pilot for Cartoon Network.

Bought a gunshow book at SPX the other week, I like it more every time I read it. Also K.C. Green drew a monkey in it for me. Class act all around.

I really enjoyed the Demi Dog comics.

this is exactly my kind of thing, thanks!

Just chiming in to say that Gunshow is one of my fave comics too—the short ones more than the long ones. If it takes having loose bits in my brain to enjoy them, I'm down with that.

I'm fond of Mark Twin: The Dude.

Er, Mark Twain. Damn you, loose brain bits!

No discussion of Gunshow can be complete without mentioning Ghost Ship. It's his oddness applied to a story that's serious and touching. Wonderful.

I've loved KC since the Horribleville days, but Gunshow is really spectacular. The long strips he's been putting out more and more recently are always a treat.
