Reviews: This week’s Web-comic Wednesday Review is the online comic “Wondermark” by David Malki! This maybe one I re-read more often, so this will specifically be about the last ten web-comics. With this I leave the lesser known web-comics to review some of the bigger names in comics.
David Malki! Is good to review due to having a very open-door policy concerning web-comics. He openly loves being mentioned in blogs, and any other Internet media. There is an old saying in journalism, and it is “There is no such thing as bad press” that tends to be true of web-comcis. Any mention of your work in other people’s blogs tends to be a good mention.
This is why Malki! Like many web-comic creators likes cross-posting his work. He openly says on the About section of his webpage “You can feel free to re-post any comics from this site on your blog, Facebook, LiveJournal, etc. without asking permission, so long as you include a link back to wondermark.com as well!” This I am doing in the above “Location of Comic” section, and I do this with all comic I review. I am not claiming to draw the things, and I am only quoting the art I give full production credit for its creators.
This latest set of comics is about the Thanksgiving holidays. Particularly is the holidays were celebrated by beings from another planet and dimension. Giant dinosaur men share the Thanksgiving activities of other planets. It is a favorite technique of Malki! To take a normal subject like dinner with the holidays, and interject something amazingly surreal. The result is a fun art style and good humor. Wondermark is a very ideal web-comic, and is many ways the zenith of the genre of increasingly popular writing expression. It updates regular, maintains a popular blogs, and communicates good humor well. I say it is great, check it out!
