YMMV: Curtis
  • Bizarro Episode: Every year for Kwanzaa, the strip runs a two-week-long Story Arc that involves new, made-up characters doing absolutely ridiculous things that resemble African folktales, with little concern for anything other than being awesomely over-the-top, often toeing the line between Rule of Cool and an outright Mind Screw. Past arcs have included a golden, telepathic otter and a magic sandal and bat-winged bears, among others. Consensus among fans (or at least among The Comics Curmudgeon and his followers) is that these are among his best works; he even considers the otter "still the gold standard."
    • They actully do tie it into the strip, but always in the same way: It always turns out to be a book Curtis was reading.
  • Critical Research Failure: One story has a butcher that used to be a Disney animator who was laid off. The reason for said layoff was Pixar, which if you know anything about how Disney and Pixar work, is completely untrue.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Many readers only check in for the Kwanzaa strips.
