With the odd exception, he has been less funny lately, while the artwork has improved. Still, he always raises a smile so good luck to him.

This one was great.

I interviewed him last year, he was the greatest mutha alive to talk to. He is also doing the artwork for SLUM rekkids first compilation.

LeCoq (LeCoq), Friday, 30 September 2005 02:20 (fourteen years ago) link

:-D LeCoq, you wonderful man, that is an interview I would be proud of until the day I died. Well done.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Friday, 30 September 2005 03:53 (fourteen years ago) link

That guy is cool. I wrote to him after the first time I saw PBF, on ilx. I wrote him because I loved the comic, and he came from my city, and worked for my friend I also worked for, who has an animation studio there. He was charming and remembered the friend too. I might run into him in the future, I hope.

ten months pass...
I've read his online collection and I have to say he's giving Larson a run for his money as my favourite comic-strip author. Just awesome. My favourite is probably 'The Shortcut Express' which might be the single bleakest thing, erm, ever. I'd love to meet the guy.

Louis Jagger (Haberdager), Saturday, 5 August 2006 20:48 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah, even when he misses, I love the art. When he hits, he's among my favorites ever.

One of my student workers was looking through PBF the other day and I complimented him on his good taste -- the other student worker asked about it and knowing she had the right sense of humor (ie, gone, dark and evil) we both referred her to the site. She was appropriately horrified/entertained.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Saturday, 5 August 2006 21:01 (thirteen years ago) link

It reminds me of a British animated cartoon called Monkey Dust, in its own turn the bleakest TV I have ever seen and my favourite television programme. The PBF mines a similar seam of knowing, despairing, fiendishly intelligent maleovolence.

*remembers The Man With No Penis, smirks, buries head in hands*

Louis Jagger (Haberdager), Saturday, 5 August 2006 21:44 (thirteen years ago) link

burying your head in your hands is the real-life alternative to the comic strip shooting yourself in the head

RJG (RJG), Saturday, 5 August 2006 21:46 (thirteen years ago) link

(you have no penis)

RJG (RJG), Saturday, 5 August 2006 21:48 (thirteen years ago) link

The burying head in hands was in sympathy to anyone in a similar plight to TMWNP, that of being tormented by a general pleasure he/she cannot attain.

*realises how dorky the above sentence is, smirks, buries head in hands*

Louis Jagger (Haberdager), Saturday, 5 August 2006 21:54 (thirteen years ago) link

okay, I thought it was simply because you, too, have no penis

RJG (RJG), Saturday, 5 August 2006 21:56 (thirteen years ago) link

You don't know if I'm a man, let alone whether I have a penis or not :-D

Jimmy Mod: THE HANDLESS ORGANIST (The Famous Jimmy Mod), Thursday, 10 August 2006 14:09 (thirteen years ago) link

The Shortcut Express is IMO the portrait of a once-great entertainer (or a lonely man who wishes he was) deserted by his audience and left alone with his cuddly toys, mustering one last act of showmanship before ending his exquisite misery in the most profoundly miserable manner. It's brilliant.

The best ones apart from that are No Survivors, Barb And Rudy, Today I Am Going To Fly, It's My Birthday, Freaking Vortex and Eden. Holy crap they're good.

Louis Jagger (Haberdager), Thursday, 10 August 2006 14:13 (thirteen years ago) link

It's so great, and the new archive is nice. I think my favorite is still 'Space Laughs', the very first one I read (years ago when a friend scanned some in for his site).

Out of the recent ones, Guntron Alliance Force is kinda brilliant.

Jordan (Jordan), Thursday, 10 August 2006 14:27 (thirteen years ago) link

Mostly for the expression on the face of the guy at bottom left.

Aubrey Beardsley nod is brilliant, I think.

Man, he's on a streak lately. When the Wishing Well came along a few weeks ago, that was the first one to make me laugh out loud in a while. But this week's blows it out of the water.

Trayce, Tuesday, 27 February 2007 02:20 (twelve years ago) link

1) is definitely The Shortcut Express, that one hits something no other cartoon has ever reached

Also in there are Barb And Rudy, Pyro Billy, The Man With No Penis, Suck Note, Today I Am Going To Fly, Suicide Train, It's My Birthday and of course No Survivors (my 2nd favourite). The other two will take more deliberation.

The old PBF would have had the first three panels of the sex offender as is, but in the last panel it would have had a rear shot of the "Neptune" guy and the boy walking away together with no cops around.

I WAS GONNA say something along the lines of 'I thought he'd totally jumped the shark but this week's is a wonderful return to top form', so yeah!

notice that there was a long gap before this one. maybe he was collecting himself.

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 15:11 (one year ago) link

working to get that famous playboy humor just right lol

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 18 July 2018 15:51 (one year ago) link

also, the son is apparently already familiar with what it looks like when trees have human sex, so it's not so much like the twist is dad saying "actually they're fucking!" as it is the dad correcting him on the kind of fucking they're doing

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 16:31 (one year ago) link

the trees could just be replaced with two real people doing it in the woods, and it would be the same joke

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 16:32 (one year ago) link

holy shit, a talking tree!

mh, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 16:33 (one year ago) link

I don't see any breasts on the tree. Is that the joke?

pplains, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 16:50 (one year ago) link

I think I could probably do without his sex-themed cartoons.

Alba, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 16:52 (one year ago) link

yea I didn't really parse what the joke was exactly but it did make me laugh so it's not a failure

frogbs, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 16:55 (one year ago) link

he shd draw a sexy tree with tits

sprout god (lag∞n), Wednesday, 18 July 2018 16:57 (one year ago) link

does his work regularly appear in playboy? if so, i'd imagine he's at least happy to get a decent paycheck.

it's too bad, in a world that wasn't dumb his first 100 panels or so could just be syndicated in black in white in the cartoon section of hundreds of newspapers and they'd be by far the funniest thing in there every single day. but you're not allowed to have a syndicated cartoon unless you're completely bland and humorless or struck some sort of deal with satan back in the early 1980s.

Karl Malone, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 16:57 (one year ago) link

i mean the joke is pretty obvious and typical PBF, misunderstanding & inability to communicate

flappy bird, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 17:19 (one year ago) link

Should've been 'come on my buds', but otherwise I laughed.

Dan Worsley, Wednesday, 18 July 2018 17:22 (one year ago) link

the tree saying "unnngggh" is the funniest part

PBF is awesome but obviously a lot of that is due to the fact that the author doesn't have to crank 'em out every day, every week, or every month

It’s true, he’s returning to his horny roots

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 6 November 2018 06:20 (eleven months ago) link

didn't know he'd done so many recently, some of them are pretty weak. gentleworms & treatment (the toilet plunger head one) are both headscratchers. can someone could spell out the punchline to either of those? perhaps i'm being naive...

Toss another shrimpl air on the bbqbbq (ledge), Tuesday, 6 November 2018 12:38 (eleven months ago) link

Her psychiatrist has fixed her problems, but her husband is inevitably going to reverse all the progress they made (she is a toilet clogged with tampons, her husband is a box of tampons) - gentleworms is just a fairly silly take on the separation of soul and body, don't think there is that much to say about it.

mfktz (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Tuesday, 6 November 2018 12:47 (eleven months ago) link

ok maybe that is a bunch of tampons, i thought it looked like a pile of sheets or something. it's not exactly rofl material.

Toss another shrimpl air on the bbqbbq (ledge), Tuesday, 6 November 2018 13:00 (eleven months ago) link

Yeah, they have been hit and miss recently, both of those are misses imo. Otoh the new one is his best for a while.
