I don’t know what it is about webcomics that ensures that invariably I’ll come around to an individual title let’s say more than a little late to the party, but there ya have it. My current ‘how did I miss this?’ read would be J. Jacques ‘Questionable Content‘, which details the daily lives of indie rock nerd Marten and his friends.
That’s not really a fair (or even close to comprehensive) overview, as over the course of its life the comic has careened from straight ahead indie hipster irony to surreal absurdism, and Jaques seems more than a little comfortable leaving the ground rules a little undefined.
While I could nitpick any number of elements in the series overall the jokes are funny, the characters engaging, and the over all story is pretty engrossing.
If you’re planning on starting from the beginning, I recommend setting aside some time considering there are some 1100 episodes to go through. It’s a bit jarring to go to the beginning and see just how far along J. Jaques art skills have come over the years, (not to mention his writing skills) but a full-on ride through the entire catalog makes for a pretty satisfying read, and one that I wouldn’t mind having in collected volumes.
