Cul de Sac by Richard Thompson

Here’s a great new comic that’s got a real edge to it. I love the sketchy style, and the way the children all look so hideous. This, I think, may pick up where Matt Groening’s Life in Hell comic strip left off when he started working on The Simpsons. (If that reference doesn’t make any sense, check out the Childhood is Hell collection, then look at the material he got into post-Simpsons. It’s still good, just different.) Anyway. Richard Thompson has apparently been around for a while, doing good work in the D.C. area. Now that he’s syndicated, those of us on the other side of the country get to read his comics, too. I will be looking forward to reading this comic strip.
