This is from a series of comics by my fellow webcomic creators and the creme de la creme of visual entries to the FutureWorldProblems contest I mentioned the other day. If you like this charming entry, check out the original post with FutureWorldProblems here, or the first comic on the subject here.
Today’s comic was done by the amazing Michael Lalonde of Orneryboy. I’ve been reading his stuff for years, it’s worth your time. I remember finding Orneryboy back in 2005, and loving the art style as being something very different than what I was used to seeing. I’ve been keeping up with it ever since. It’s the story of a boy named Ornery, his girlfriend Dirtygirl, and their pet zombie Brian and a pet cat all going through insane adventures. I’m pretty sure the whole thing is laid out in Flash because every once in a while pages are animated to give them some great effects. Like this. And this.
About a month ago, I tweeted something or other at Michael and he decided to check out The System, which apparently he liked a bunch and read through the archive. That was very cool of him. There’s nothing more satisfying than finding out that someone whose work you appreciate appreciates yours right back.
Tomorrow finishes up our extended guest comic time with a great one by Bill Ellis, and back to me on Wednesday!
