Digital Strips 210 – Review Bullfinch

There are a few advantages to being as dumb as I am. No one asks you to create an equation that will quantify the universe. The ending to mystery shows is always a surprise. And you’re wrong so often that you have so much practice admitting you’re wrong that it becomes really easy.

And that’s what this episode is. Steve “The Geek” Shinney admitting that he was wrong about a comic. They say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, which is stupid, that’s why they have the picture on the cover so you can judge it. If a book has a dragon and a barbarian chick in a chain main bikini on the cover, I judge that I’m going to like it. You should not however judge a Web comic by it’s first hundred strips. That’s the lesson I’m trying to expound on here.

The comic we look at is Bullfinch, by TL Collins. It’s gone through many changes, from gag-a-day to long form story, from black and white to full color and from boring to really good. Come along and we’ll explain what happened and why we were so excited that it did.
