Random Quickies: F*ck Yeah Headlines
Back in 2007, Strong Bad memorably made fun of webcomics, including one sort where you just “ask for input from your viewers and rip that off for content. Pfff. What a cop-out.” The Cheat then makes comics based on spam e-mail names the readers send him. (ex: Knowingest J. Drawbridges.)
Weirdly, that’s the first thing that came to mind when I viewed Eric Wedlum’s F*ck Yeah Headlines, which takes newspaper headlines and makes a comic out of them. Like “Australian Brewery Invents ‘Space Beer’” shows and astronaut getting drunk with aliens. It’s really, really corny … but in a way, it’s like a better drawn version of the comics the Cheat was making fun of, and it makes me feel rather nostalgic of webcomics past.
Wait. Is it possible to get nostalgic about something from only four years ago?
