The Big Bob-Blog

2006-07-28

Please excuse my slightly awkward sentance structure tonight, as I am very tired.

T Campbell and Gisèle Lagacé have a pretty decent little comic going over on Keenspot: Penny and Aggie (T's the brains, he writes it; Gisèle is the brawn, she draws it). Penny and Aggie's stated purpose is to be Mean Girls for webcomics, and at that I can say it's succeeded- of course, I say that because I was ambivalent about Mean Girls, too.

My reason for bringing it up is that I hope T isn't still wishing/hoping/planning that Penny and Aggie will be some kind of crossover hit with actual teenagers (or at least, those who aren't reading a lot of other webcomics anyway). I hope this because any chances of it becoming a hit of that nature died with today's installment.

To my mind, one of the hallmarks of truly knowing something is that you start to forget that other people don't know it. For example, I know a lot about Spider-Man, but I don't think I realized how much I know about this fictional character and his supporting cast until the movies hit a couple years back. After Spider-Man 2, the topic of Harry Osborn's likely fate in the third movie started coming up in conversation. "He's going to become the Hobgoblin", people would say. "No," I'd gently correct, "in the classic comics story, Harry became the second Green Goblin. The Hobgoblin was someone else entirely- just some random guy who found Norman Osborn's weapons stash and recolored it" (of course, Marvel Comics then went on and did make Harry the Hobgoblin in their highest-profile alternate universe, the same source from which they also appear to be drawing their interpretation of Venom for the third movie, but I digress).

Conversely, if you went around bragging how much you knew about breathing, you'd sound like an idiot. And that's sort of what T Cambell is doing here: the implication in the third panel is that he and Ms. Lagacé have been "portraying real, honest-to-goodness hyper-hormonal teenagers" for the run of the strip so far. I don't think that's so. Certainly the characters in Zits, by-and-large, strike a more realistic chord with me than the P&A teens.

  • More than annoying, I find the comic simply without anything to draw me to it - it is neither funny, nor insightful, nor touching. The writing is shoddy, although the art is acceptable.
