HIPHOP IS THE FUTURE: WE HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON

Comics

by Matt Dojny

I usually hate to editorialize (okay, we all know that’s not true), but I love the way that Matt’s text has slightly visible older writing behind it. It’s like every single panel reminds the reader that something else could have been said, or was said, or will be said. Even in pieces that are essentially silly and gag-like, there are almost always little bits and pieces of strangeness floating around, pieces that don’t fit in with the simplicity of just a one-off joke. Matt admits that humor is complex, and isn’t afraid of introducing elements that encourage the reader to question whether there’s more to what they’re laughing about.
