Adam Lore’s work is like a mine field.
Some of it is brilliant, and some of it is explosively stupid.
I noticed a preoccupation with excretory functions
and inappropriate objects of affection.
His drawings are first rate.
Here is Rich’s assessment of the strips so far -
“The Cactus Song” - weird but flavorful
“Clouds” - cute
“Bird Love” - explosively stupid
“Diggin’ For Dino Bones” - Brilliant (I love this one, but the line between brilliant and explosively stupid is very narrow. Also, it saddens me that they called it ‘Bupkus’. So unfair)
“Lamp of Love” - cute
“An Apple a Day” - explosively stupid
“Scrub Those Dishes” - explosively stupid
“Don’t Jump” - explosively stupid
“Fries with That” - explosively stupid
“A Real Time Machine” - great drawings
“The Man Who Married a Cactus” - explosively stupid
“Heroic Man Vs. The Giant Squid” - explosively stupid
“Oh, Baby!” -explosively stupid
“Lawn Care” - cute
“To Pee or Not to Pee” - brilliant
“The Stars” - cute
“Semantic Satiation” - brilliant
Well, that’s how it seems to me.
Thanks, Rich. And I hope you will forgive me for re-formatting the comment to make it look more official than it originally was.
