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 (sixteen 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 (sixteen 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 (fifteen 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 (fifteen 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 (fifteen 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 (fifteen years ago) link

(you have no penis)

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

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

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

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

Louis Jagger (Haberdager), Thursday, 10 August 2006 14:30 (fifteen years ago) link

Aubrey Beardsley nod is brilliant, I think.

Trayce, Tuesday, 27 February 2007 02:20 (fifteen 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.

It is - theres a 3rd NSFW panel but its only available on his patreon, so I extrapolated... I havent seen it though.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 07:01 (one year ago) link

if there's a third joke what's the second?

Yeah god sorry I ballsed that up I meant 2nd joke, theres a 3rd hidden panel!

nickn, Tuesday, 1 December 2020 17:45 (one year ago) link

There's 2 faces/people making out (I guess?) blue guy and "negative space" guy

Red guy does indeed look like he has a dick in his mouth.

Stoop Crone (Trayce), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 21:24 (one year ago) link

That's gotta be unintentional tho

Whiney G. Weingarten, Tuesday, 1 December 2020 21:28 (one year ago) link

are they making out. looks like they're sucking each other's noses

"cartoon" iirc

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 21:34 (one year ago) link

anyway the "joke" is that the negative space is speaking self-judgement into the blue guy, get it: it's NEGATIVE SPACE
then there's a dick
the third joke is where i carried you

the serious avant-garde universalist right now (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 21:37 (one year ago) link

it's called 'the short 69'

foopin posts and pissin shits (Sufjan Grafton), Tuesday, 1 December 2020 21:41 (one year ago) link

one thing what's confusing about it, though, is that the "negative space" is the blue area that says "you are bad" and the white area is the client, in the first panel, but in the second panel, the white area is the negative space and the blue area is the client. at any rate, they're sucking each other's noses, not their dicks. the therapist is the one doing the dick sucking

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 1 December 2020 21:55 (one year ago) link

The white area is saying it, comics show dialog outside of the speaker. And their mouth is open (and no other person detectable at that point.
