20.Sep.2009 Get your ‘Goats’

I recently read Goats: Infinite Typewriters by Jonathan Rosenberg, a collection of his webcomic you can find at Goats.com. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire read and it’s lovely mix of high concept discussion and low brow ridiculousness, more so than I could describe in the brief post I imagined this being—the simple point is, whether I yammer on about it or not, you should read it. Rosenberg does an amazing job of using shorter syndicated style strips to weave intricate plot lines and running jokes into an amazingly satisfying read that really makes you feel as though you’ve earned every bit of enjoyment.

Just for a smidgeon of a taste, I scanned in a few of the panels I enjoyed most for their pure silliness.

Good stuff, right? Like a said, that is solely a smidgeon, so go get your Goats!

    That art looks like it could be tv show– it looks somewhere between the simpsons/futurama style and the adult swim variety with a little sponge bob thrown in there… (a highly technical literary and artistic observation I know…) Looks cool.

    Side, topic, if Jesus was a jewish– why the beef? Christians & Muslims have them to thank for their own religions– and both are waiting for the skies to part and their ‘messiahs’ to come… Hopefully a handsome, english-speaking politically-correct American one…

    Just checked out the goats.com site and today’s comic was hilarious– if fractals are your thing of course. I recommend it to anyone else reading this as well, thanks for the heads up jimbob
