Perhaps I should have seen this coming, the way he wrapped up the Fantasy crew’s quest. Ironically, the Fantasy theme had an open-ended finale.

(From Irregular Webcomic! Click for full-sized history of the periodic table.) While researching the xkcd post from earlier today, imagine my surprise upon discovering that while I had stopped reading it, David Morgan-Mar had brought Irregular Webcomic! to a rather abrupt halt. What’s even more freaky is that my very last IWC post predicted that […]

How weird is IWC? I saw this coming by the second panel.

(From Irregular Webcomic: Steve and Terry. Click for full-sized talentlessness.) So earlier this week I tweeted how weird it was that Steve was about to become Hitler. As it turns out, I wouldn’t know weird if it held me down and beat me up for my lunch money. Here’s the funny thing: It wouldn’t be […]

It’s like a big ball of timey… wimey… stuff.

(From Irregular Webcomic: Shakespeare. Click for full-sized command of the English language.) Okay, I am officially lost as to how these time shenanigans work. The only way I can make sense of Shakespeare’s nervousness in the third panel, and make the punchline not a complete non-sequitur, is to come to the conclusion that once the […]

Yes, I know I’m using “nonplussed” wrong, and I don’t care.

(From Irregular Webcomic! Click for full-sized timeline refugees.) What I find exceedingly interesting about this comic, and what makes it the biggest development in the Irregular Crisis in months, is the first panel. There is plenty wonky about the alternate 1940 that most of the IWC cast has been sucked into, but Mercutio mentions none […]

I promise I’m not going to turn this into “TV Tropes: The Blog”. As interesting as that would be.

(From Irregular Webcomic: Martians. Click for full-sized discounts.) I bring up this episode of Irregular Webcomic! from earlier in the week because it exhibits a trope I hate: when a seemingly bit character with a mundane life turns out to have an incredibly exciting past that often is more intertwined with the heroes and their […]

Hey, if I do like Robert A. Howard and post semi-regularly on just the comics I read, I only need to do a new full review once a month or so. If I read as many as he does, that is.

(From Irregular Webcomic: Shakespeare. Click for full-sized star-crossed lovers.) This comic is not really as impactful as it should be. Pre-Irregular Crisis, it had been hinted that Ophelia had a thing for Shakespeare (especially during Loren Ipsum’s original story arc), but aside from a bit immediately following the reboot of the universe regarding Ophelia breaking […]

One problem with the multi-comic setup: The only major development since my last post has been Fireballs explaining the situation with Me, who then got recruited by the Halley-Newton group. Oh, and Shakespeare got involved.

(From Irregular Webcomic! Click for full-sized potato salad.) Few webcomics have the balls to spring a twist so huge on their audience it forces them to reassess everything they’ve been through before. So give some credit to Irregular Webcomic! and its Cliffhangers theme, which used the occasion of its 3000th comic to drop an absolute […]

I really need to get my writing muscle back in shape.

(From Irregular Webcomic! Click for full-sized memory lapse.) So most of what’s happened up to this point in the Steve and Terry theme since the reboot of the universe turns out to have been an extended flashback that just ended (in what may have supposed to have been June). Which is rather interesting in terms […]

Hope DMM didn’t break things by trying to do “IWC on a Postcard” for 2317, assuming he was trying to do so, especially right as he went on vacation…

(From Irregular Webcomic! Click for full-sized charitable act.) So most of what’s happened up to this point in the Steve and Terry theme since the reboot of the universe turns out to have been an extended flashback that just ended (in what may have supposed to have been June). Which is rather interesting in terms […]

On top of everything else, Draft Image Upload is STILL screwed up.

(From Irregular Webcomic! Click for full-sized Swiss chocolate.) So… if the Joneses are still on their way back from the Underworld… …but at the same time are rescuing each other from the Nazis… …what impact will that have if they collide? More evidence the Irregular Crisis isn’t over yet…
