Guest Strip by Marc de Wolf

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

I can’t tell you how tickled I was to find this comic in my email box on the one year anniversary of GingerDead and Friends. I’m a big fan of Marc de Wolf. Marc’s part of the duo that create Marbles, a comic about starving African kids. “What?!”, you may ask, ‘that’s not funny subject matter.” Well, yeah it can be.

The approach is funny and smart. It doesn’t take much effort to see that often times the poking fun is of our own Western culture. They do it so perfectly without ever being preachy. It’s humorous and at the same time holds a little mirror up to our self absorbed ways and makes us take notice of issues like starvation and exploitation. Anyway, that’s one of the things I love about it. Other times, it’s just plain wrong and I love that too. Wee!

Check out Marbles and while you’re at it, check out Marc’s other comic, Roach Planet. Talented bloke, this guy. I’m really honored he took the time to make me this awesome anniversary comic. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.
I think next week we will return to our regular scheduled programming. 😛 See you then.

    Speaking of Ass-Kicking comics, when are you coming back, Calan?
    It’s not that I don’t enjoy the guest comics, I just miss the ol’ GD gang.

    I do agree in that “Marbles” is similar to “Borat”. Very offensive to look at and one does laugh, while realizing that it is actually a moving reflection of ourselves.

    This is probably my first non-haiku comment. *Makes a faux party motion* Huzzah!
