About 17 years ago I ran into a quirky science fiction webcomic where the main character looks like a pile of poo.
One would think that something like that would be, well, a pile of poo and disappear fairly quickly. Yet the humor and storytelling overcame the rather poor art. The comic has been a long, long stream of humor, interesting story telling and even stranger characters and backgrounds. The fact that the story has been able to keep going for seventeen years is an achievement in itself. Being able to maintain the quality of the storytelling makes Schlock truly a great work.
After all, how many writers would turn Christmas elves and ninjas into wargame icons.
There’s a LOT more like this in Schlock Mercenary.
