Under the Net with Jake Estrada
Welcome to the 22nd edition of Under the Net.
I will be rating the elements of the book on a scale of one through five.
One is poor, two is mediocre, three is fair, four is good, and five is excellent.
Today, I am doing a review of a web comic series that is basically about two guys writing and drawing about how they feel about current events around the world, and I must say it is quite good. The series is by Jack Janney and Jim Pezzetti.
The art is black and white. It is done nicely, has a great mixture of humor and movement and is very east to read.
ART: 4 STARS
The writing is very good as well. I enjoyed it a lot. I love the tone of the writing because each page is a different story that has to do with gaming or some sort of genre. Sometimes the writing has dark humor. For example, a guy is writing a story, and he is working hard. When he is happy, he has a cat in his hands, and he is naked and the ladies walk in to see this. In one story, a baby and a man finally head into work to tell his boss to see the other guy. There are subjects about people having to use their real name and address if they were gamers, and the other player talks about how much of a nightmare this would be because it would bring out all the weirdoes and nerds doing stupid things like appearing to make out with women, or one standing over a person’s face in victory.
WRITING: 4 STARS
The art was nice, the writing was great, and there are several stories in the book. The originality to the series is great because you never know what you will get on any given update.
ORIGINALITY: 3 STARS
The book has great humor, great writing, and great art.
The only con is that the web comic doesn’t have a set storyline.
|Cut the Cord. Enjoy!|
My Final Word
If you want something funny, something to read and have a little fun, then this is the series for you because you will laugh. J
