What is Berkeley Mews exactly? A left-coast college for cats? A hybrid of Bloom County and Garfield? The title obscures more than it reveals. The art and writing, however, is crystal clearly a treat for fans of Web comics and uplifting black humor. If Berkeley Mews were taught at the actual Berkeley, however, it would be rife with trigger warnings: "Do not read if you have had traumatic experiences with child-eating witches. Avoid at all costs if you can't bear to see Tom Cruise in distress." Here in GoComics country, however, the mildly sociopathic comedy of strips like Berkeley Mews are a welcome treat for the brave reader. Never mind the toilet paper icon on the A-Z listing and the strip's banner: Berkeley Mews is anything but a throwaway read.
