Webcomic reviews: Part 4

What’s up everyone? It’s me again with even more webcomics for you to read, enjoy and become totally addicted to! So if you’re the kind of person who likes a good laugh, a good story, or both, I have some really great comics this time around!

Cat Vs Human

Cat Vs Human

We all have that one friend who is totally addicted to cats, sending pictures and videos to us over the internet and constantly gushing about their cat when you meet up with them in real life. So what would happen if that same person made a comic? Well this webcomic might very well answer that question.

Created by a girl named Yasmine and updated at least once a week, Cat vs Human features the cutest comics based on the things that happen to her and her cats. She may come off as a bit of a crazy cat lady at first, but the more of her comics you read, the more you come to appreciate her sense of humour. Not to mention if you own a cat, you’ll probably be able to relate to most of these stories, and that just makes them that much funnier.

This comic has something for everyone, except the non-cat people. With an adorable art style and a true-to-life sense of humour, if you’re a cat lover or owner, you need to take a look at this one.

Problem Sleuth

Problem Sleuth

From Andrew Hussie, the same man who wrote Homestuck (check out Grace's review of Homestuck here - ed), comes Problem Sleuth. This was one of his earlier comics, so unlike Homestuck, it’s totally completed, and if you have a few days with nothing to do, you can sit down and read it from start to finish. I say a few days because it’s a very, very long comic to get through.

This also means it has a full story, which is actually really engaging, despite its premise. The story is about three detectives trying to escape from their offices in a parody of both film noir and the classic point-and-click interactive fiction games. Sound simple? Well if you’ve read any of Homestuck then you know it’s not going to be as straightforward as it seems. You just know something crazy is going to happen, and believe me, you won’t be disappointed.

If you’re a fan of detective stories or just a fan of general silliness, this is something I have to recommend to you. The art is simplistic, but it manages to get its point across, and the jokes are pretty clever and will make you laugh out loud in a lot of places. This is definitely one to keep in mind for those long, rainy days.

Cerberus

Cerberus

This is a fairly new comic, created by both Steve Tse and SJ Butler. If you’re a fan of the more traditional style of comic book with superheroes, supervillains and a heap of action, this will be right up your alley. Especially if you’re looking for a superhero story with a twist.

Cerberus is released as a whole issue that you can read online, with one issue coming out every month. The story revolves around a world where people with super powers are steadily increasing in number. It takes the idea that humans, being selfish and greedy, would use these powers for their own gain. This means that there are only supervillains in the world. However, one man has brought together a team of super-powered humans to create the first ever superheroes.

The art style is quirky, but flows well and creates a sense of action, and also reflects the dark place the world has become. The writing contains a dark sort of humour that will get a laugh out of you. Cerberus is definitely one for those looking for a good story.
