There are really only a handful of webcomics online that I read on a regular basis. You know, as in "Oh hey, it's Monday. That comic is updated!" Penny Arcade and Mega Tokyo are not
such webcomics. In fact, I could probably count such webcomics on one hand. Not that I don't read a lot of webcomics it's just the others I choose to take in big occasional gulps. But, just in case you're not reading it, I want you to check this shit out. And laugh. Laugh good and hard. And then buy their book. Chugworth Academy
. By Dave "Scribblekid" Cheung, with the helping hand of Jamal "Jay Esthar" Joseph Jr. I've been keeping up with Scribble's art for a good few years now since well before I knew how to draw, even. He and Jay were part of this big-ass amateur RPG Making community that myself and some good few thousand frequented on a daily basis. Back when Deviant Art was in its infancy, Brad and Jen were still an item, Justin was with NSync, and we were all just a little bit confused about our sexuality. Or something. Anyway, one day Scribb's, much known for boobies, cum-shots, and the slick-looking game-in-progress Lx:Lonely Hearts, 'lo and behold posts this kinky cool webcomic on the forums. And then it dies after a few strips and some jokes about cheese and dog-fucking. Really though, it was classy
Anyway. Chugworth Academy 02
(I believe they've since dropped the 02) hit the scene a year back give or take. And though there's yet to be a Benny (that was the dog) joke, it's STILL classy. And visually appetizing, as Scribbles has really refined his anime stylings and the CGing quality is extra nifty. Cel-shaded, but it's that cel-shaded that you look at and go "Damn, I wish I could cel-shade like that
, yo." Oh yes. But most of all, it's damn
So if you're not reading it, READ it. You bastards. But also buy their book. They took a good chunk of their first year and published it recently, and it's well worth the money. Not a fan of reading reprinted webcomics you can read for free? Think of it as supporting the artists. But there are
some nice extras in there profiles and sketches and PANCAKE MOTHERFUCKERS, which is the greatest translation of hangover to comic ever
And if THAT's not reason enough to buy it
The book was published through indie Internet publishing service Lulu, which I'm sure ANY of you artists out there might take an interest to. You can publish your own comics through them, or even art books! And hey, you'd want to see what kinda' printing quality Lulu puts out before you sign on, right?
Why not check it out with Chugworth.
