Chest of Drawers

Feb 17th, 2017 | By

Cartoon characters wear the same clothes all the time because cartoonists are lazy and don’t feel like deviating from their drawing routine. I’ve doubled down on this laziness by making my characters’ clothes so integral to who they are that you wouldn’t be able to tell them apart if they suddenly started wearing other things. Do they have one outfit that they dutifully wash every night and change into the next morning? Do they have closets filled with identical clothes?



“A letter from the lads of Ladies’ Choice Feminine Care to all feminists,” by Ella Gonzalez

Feb 15th, 2017 | By

Dear feminists complaining about blue liquid in feminine hygiene commercials,

We accede to your demands and have heard your cries! No longer will we use blue liquid in tampon and pad commercials. Following the rupture of our respective eardrums after being nagged to death by the sound of your shrill voices, the men of Ladies’ Choice Feminine Care propose a peace offering.



I Want a Pizza That

There are about a thousand jokes that I could have used here, each of them more crass than the next. But my philosophy is this: I will always try to eschew the obvious joke for a more obscure but ultimately more satisfying one.



“Ad For a Freelance Band Namer,” by Kate Penney

Attention, Potential Bands:

So maybe you’re a group of old college buddies who’ve rallied around the idea that it’s your Duty to Transform The World through the power of Great Art (in this case, Art equals Music, and nothing else at all, right? Wrong! Read on).



King Toadstool: Portrait of a Tyrant

Feb 5th, 2017 | By

Koopa Kingdom isn’t an aggressive nation who wishes to destabilize the status quo because “that’s what bad guys do.” In fact, they’re a fledgling resistance, seeking to free all citizens of the world from under the iron fist of King Toadstool.



Spineful

———– It’s about time Winslow got back into the genetic engineering game. Maybe this time he’ll finally do some good. Could you imagine the Senate floor overrun with acid-spitting monstrosities? (I don’t plan on making a bunch of overly politicized comics this year, but part of the reason I endeavored to drawing as many comics

“A Friendly E-mail to My Successor,” by Alex Colvin

Feb 1st, 2017 | By

No matter how bad an event is, always immediately declare it a total and unparalleled success. This is surprisingly easy to get away with, as a) none of the frosh students were there last year to know how much better all the events were managed and b) frosh week events are so inherently forgettable that upper-year students will struggle to contest your claims anyway. Enjoy your success!



Mythperceptions

Climate science is dangerous and controversial, mainly because the term includes the word “science,” which some people understandably misread as “murdering puppies.” We’ve tried to use the term “climate change” instead, but the word “change” seems to have the same negative reaction.

I found a few places where there were lots of unnecessary words. I think a lot of words need to be cut, only leaving the words that move your story along. You have the makings of a good story, just revise so there are fewer words. Hope I’ve helped!



Dream Sequence

Congratulations, everyone. You’ve successfully made it to this, the first Ben & Winslow comic of 2017! And because this is such a momentous occasion–certainly more exciting than presidential inaugurations or whatever movies came out today (seriously, I don’t even know)–I decided to make this comic a collaborative effort with a young up-and-coming cartoonist!
