Reviews: The Bare Pit

Charming, funny, thoughtful, innocent

I was surprised to find a nudist/naturist webcomic. I was afraid it was going to be a parade of stereotypes, or a lurid erotic series. (Not that there's anything wrong with erotica; done properly, it can be seriously good art. However, too many people eroticize nudity as it is!) Instead I found a funny, good natured, down-to-earth webcomic about the adventures and mis-adventures of a nudist club in Australia. The villain, when and if he shows up, is a Culture Police type, and the humiliation conga was never, ever done better.

Nudism/naturism is depicted naturally, matter-of-factly, and with gentle humor for the interactions between the world inside the club and the world outside. Humans look like humans, with an infinite variety of colors, shapes and sizes. People are themselves and unashamed of it... as you would expect.

Even if you're not interested in nudism/naturism, give this webcomic a try. There isn't a mean bone in its body, the art is excellent, and it's funny to boot!
