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.
He’s definitely a bit buttoned up but give him eight martinis, a couple of quaaludes, and a totally chill and relaxed cat (for rubbing), and the dude definitely takes it down to a strong eight and a half.
