If you're anything like me, you like your humor in large portions and piping hot! So that's why I'm so delighted to welcome web comics genius Jason Poland and his "Robbie and Bobby" to GoComics.
It's hard to put a finger in exactly why I like Robbie and Bobby so much, maybe it's the delicious cast of characters like Captain Bee Beard, the Captain with the Beard Made of Bees or the emo band that goes by the name of Woebegone. Or maybe it's just the depths Jason is willing to mine for a joke. Anything can happen in Robbie and Bobby and sometimes it almost does!
But in truth, if I was going to be honest with you (something I don't prefer to do), I think it's the interplay betwixt the two eponymous lead characters.
From Jason's site:
This boy wonder quickly recovers from emotional and physical defeats like a mutant optimist. Rivaling his powers of peps are the limits of his imagination, which are off the charts. The mold was broken when they crafted this one, and there was no room left for wits or common sense, so he’s often the hapless prey for real and imagined dangers. Thankfully, he has friends.
An erudite robot equipped with a real brain and a genuine heart. During his free time, he follows intellectual pursuits like wine-tasting and writing Frasier fan fiction. During his not-so-free time, he balances the responsibilities of being the roommate, legal guardian and best friend to Bobby the boy. His origins are unknown, but the house is paid off, so nobody asks too many questions.
I also think you'll enjoy the evolution of Jason's art. I highly recommend you make it part of your daily reading.
