- Growing the Beard: It may be rough going for the average reader at first, but the comic soon begins to hit its stride and gradually explains the insanity that Phil and his friends seem to attract into their lives, creating a story that puts wacky situational hijinks in hand with Character Development and pretty serious issues.
- Crazy Awesome: PenPen, plain and simple. A wisecracking, ankle-breaking penguin who has no problems trying to snipe Phil if the guy forgets to get his Jell-O for him.
- Selfish Evil: Cain is primarily concerned with serving his own interests over helping the Five.
YMMV / Yosh!
