Title: The Blobby Boys
Artist/Writer: Alex Schubert
Publisher: Zine Police Books
Purchase: http://zinepolice.bigcartel.com/ (Seems to be out of stock)
Review: 
This is the beginning of comics I picked up at CAKE. The Blobby Boys had a look which reminded me of Sof Boy or Boy’s Club, some of my favorite comics. When I opened it it was the color palette that really convinced me to buy it. It was just so wonderful. 

I could individually list each color and just say how great they all are. The black outline perfectly complements it. Just a wonderful book to hold in your hands. The total squareness of every object too really pulls it all together.
The story is short, the comic only being 12 pages but it’s very funny quick hit. Titles such as ” Punk Dad in ‘Netflix Que’ ” and “Aging Hipster in ‘Drug Deal’ ” make obvious promises of at least a chuckle. Blobby Boys is another mini-comic in the vein of dry drug humor, like the above mentioned Boy’s Club. The Blobby Boys have a weird texture to them that gives them a uniqueness and worthwhileness to read about. While being weird creatures, the boys are active potheads and are smirky as hell. Scenes which seem to serve no purpose in a normal story pop in and out of the comic. It’s these scenes which give us a real sense of what the Blobby Boys life is like and how damn funny it is.

I scoured the internet trying to find purchasable links for more issues of Blobby Boys to find out Koyama Press is putting out a collection of more Blobby Boys this fall! I eagerly await this 52 page collection. But don’t worry about not being able to purchase this comic right away, for it’s first issue is readable for free online right here!
