YMMV / The Comics Curmudgeon

  • Acceptable Targets: Of course, the long-runners which make up the bulk of the blog's grist and for some reason animals with any level of anthropomorphism (mostly due to the evident threat the overthrowing of humans by animals with sapience proves to Josh).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Josh said this about Dagwood's suit "If you donít want to draw attention to your status as an ancient relic from another decade, it may be best not to build a strip around the fact that your main character usually struts about in an outfit that nobody in living memory has worn outside of the most formal situations" Cue a year or two later, this exact suit is worn by the Eleventh Doctor who not only made it work, (While fighting monsters and running from explosions no less) but also made it fashionable amongst fans (Increasing bowtie sales by seventy percent)
  • Memetic Mutation: "More zippers, mule!" a line from Apartment 3-G, has spread to other blogs.
  • Tear Jerker: His little story made for a simple Family Circus comic is... poignantly sad.
