I’m not sure why the Ackers, Cundiff & Scobee Design Firm has exactly two offices — One in the fictional town of West Rock Creek and another in the very real city of Syracuse — but if you’re interesting in going on this emotional and spiritual journey with me we’re both going to need to just accept this as our new reality.
You missed the craziest lunch, dude. Joshua and Mike got into a taco eating contest, and they both lost and threw up everywhere. Then the manager came over and was all ‘get out of my establishment’ and then Joshua and Mike got into fisticuffs with the manager and some of the employees. The cops were called, and then Joshua and Mike ended up saying some really aggressive stuff to the cops, they got all mad, threw them on the ground… So, anyway, long story short, Joshua and Mike are facing 15 to life. Did I miss any calls?
Ultimately, this strip feels an awful lot like a dressed up Dilbert® strip. I mean, it is objectively better than every Dilbert® strip in regards to the artwork. And it’s also much better written than Dilbert® has ever been. So by those two seemingly vital measures, this comic strip is the best Dilbert® strip that’s ever been created. I’m not sure how else to measure a comic strip beyond the artwork and the writing, but God knows there are a crapload of comic strips out there that have gotten crazy successful with both terrible artwork and humor. I’m not going to name specific strips though. Except for Dilbert®. I definitely specifically named Dilbert®, here.
