Reviews: Square Root Of Minus Garfield

Interesting Entertainment Daily

This is a very interesting webcomic. It's pretty good, and there's something new every day. There's something for almost everyone, from video game jokes, to math jokes that even people with college degrees may have trouble understanding, to randomizer comics and simple edits.

There's always a new comic every day, all year, and it's always something interesting. It's always fun to try and understand the references, since people will bring up everything from Too Many Cooks to Earthbound. It's also fun to Archive Binge, since the strip is 2300 uploaded and counting. I'd rate it a 5 out of 5 for always surprising me.

Also, if you're reading this, Nyperold or any other contributor, feel free to make it into a comic. :P

Hit and Miss

Is it fair for a contributor to write a review? Perhaps, perhaps not. But as only one of many contributors in what is rapidly approaching 2000 strips, I'm going to say it is.

Square Root of Minus Garfield is a very mixed bag. A lot are funny, others, visually interesting. Some visually interesting ones can become funny if you check the content of the original strip. Others are just strange, and more. Like references? Boy, has it ever got 'em. Do you find it interesting to see a compilation of all strips with something in common (for example, Jon calls Ellen)? Well, it's got that, too. How about some memes? It has both homegrown and external. But because it is so mixed, if today's doesn't do it for you, well, maybe tomorrow's will. And if you have ideas of your own (within a PG rating) and a degree of skill in bringing it about, you can be a contributor, too, so that's a plus, if you're patient. (It won't appear that day. It probably won't even appear that month unless there's a special reason for David Morgan-Mar to put it in earlier than it normally would. There's a huge backlog. You don't even know.)

So give a few strips a try, and see what you think!



Clever, funny, creative... what more can I say?

5/5, A+
