09112015 Offensive Measures


This strip is related to ones from earlier this year where Winslow was trying to find ways to improve Ben & Winslow, which he thinks has become stale and uninteresting. Oh Winslow. Poor, poor, Winslow. This strip will never become stale. It is like a cheese, perfected with age and the occasional tuft of blue mold.

Humor often touches on sensitive or taboo subjects, but I hate it when people spout offensive things in unexpected situations and claim they’re being funny. It reeks of desperation, not a delicious cheese.

This is one of several ideas that went off on a darker tangent than I had initially planned, and it took several tries to get it juuuuust right. The intent here, of course, isn’t to offend anyone, and this one walks a finer line than most. And also appears on September 11th, when people are already in a somber mood. This was either perfect timing or the worst.

This is probably not canon.


Andrew Kaye (known in some circles as AK) is the creator of Ben & Winslow and other questionable comics, many of which can be found in his deviantART gallery and his Tumblr. He’s also the editor-in-chief of this magazine. Duh
