Living and Loving: The Steve Nash Story

I just was checking out the comics in my housemate's campus paper, the Ryerson Eyeopener, and I can safely say they're all crap. Just painfully unfunny.

Except this one. For some reason, I love this one. And the previous installments are a guilty pleasure too.

I agree that the Steve Nash comic is the funny, but why don't like Snailz?

Here's are some old Eyeopener comics. The first one is mine

Okay, I actually do like that Stalin one.

As for Snailz, I lumped it in with the crap, but that might have been a little unfair. It might not do much for me (it's a little wordy for my taste, for one thing), but it's not as bad as some of the others. However, I do have two things against it, as a matter of principle:

1. I don't generally care for computer-aided comics. Maybe I'm just a traditionalist, but line is an important element of art, and without a mastery of this, a drawing has little soul. Even if a computer is just used for the lettering, it sucks all the personality out of it.

2. I hate when people pluralize nouns with a "z" just to look "cool".
