Mochove, Jose – Full Sanction
OK, first off, it’s not very often that I could say that I could probably draw a better comic than the one I’m reviewing, as my artistic skills are laughable, but this was as simple as it could be. That doesn’t necessarily matter in a book like this though. The concept is that one of the stick figure people wants a monkey but, because they all smell like “trash soup”, the other stick figure decides to get a sloth instead. Hey, points for sticking with the theme of the site, anyway. It’s a tiny, short book, one that I was smiling throughout, simple art and all, before the ending. Now, I won’t give it away, but it was tremendously unsatisfying, and probably not for the reasons you think. I think, and I’m not sure on this, that the copier cut off the bottom of the last page. It’s either that or the ending makes no sense at all. I think I get what they were going for, but it’s impossible to tell for sure, and that’s a pain in the ass. Look, I know the people at Kinko’s can be dicks, but you really have to make sure that all of your pages are visible. If somebody takes the minute and a half or so (in this case) to read your comic, don’t you want them to be able to get what you were going for? This book was cute and funny at times, but that last page was just annoying. E-mail the creators to yell at them or just check out the website, I can’t imagine this was more than a dollar.
