Random Quickies: Nihilarity

I was browsing the Act-I-Vate webcomics and I came across a recent effort: Shannon Wheeler’s Nihilarity. It’s as if the creator sat down, opened the New Yorker, and thought, “Man, what if these cartoons were actually good?” Or, at least, bizarre. Wheeler takes the standard New Yorker template and injects the cartoons with a sense of self-awareness. Result: more funny than the New Yorker. Also, the webcomic’s title incorporates “nihilism” into a portmanteau, and you know I appreciate that.


About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.
