It was worth a click AND some retinal damage!
Patches contained a lot of the subtle little things I enjoy in some of my favorite comics. Kelly seems to have taken her own wonderfully weird sensibilities and melded them to the simplicity of the early Robot Stories comics, the depressing nature of Jimmy Corrigan & the cutie pie designs of Hounds' Home. It's not HAR HAR HAR crazy-jokey every day, but as you click through the strips you can't help but smile.
This is my first review on this site and frankly, I only decided to start reviewing on this site because I really enjoyed Patches. Easily the best new comic I've found this month.
