Some of my readers seemed to like the last online comic review I did, so I thought I’d do another one; shove this in your knowledge hole!
All human beings at one point in time have been fascinated by the idea of a utopian society whose inhabitants have not yet discovered pants. S.M.B.C. has the answer to this question and many many more!
The escapist says this about smbc: “ It is a humor webcomic, based around random, unconnected jokes. It generally covers mature topics, but can range into science and nerd humor. As an added bonus, they have a side video started in the same vein as Cyanide and Happiness’ occasional videos (although these are made IRL).”
“Most of SMBC’s humor is set up as classic misdirection, showing a picture or 2 that seem obvious or normal, then there’s an added caption that completely changes the context to something strange. That said, the webcomic also uses the traditional sequential panel style to make jokes. Shock humor also makes a few appearances, many times combining with the misdirection. On the other hand, random humor is largely absent from the comic, but considering everyone’s stance on it that might be points in SMBC’s favor.
When considering topics, SMBC prefers to use adult humor in the majority of comics. This can be sex related or parody relationships themselves. There are also quite a few other topics, however. Science is a major topic parodied in it, mostly the culture surrounding it rather than the concepts themselves. This has the bonus of being easily understood by people that aren’t as into the subject. Other topics include (but are not limited to): aliens, drugs/drinking, and exploiting the classic target of nerds.”
