It’s dark, its funny, and its name is Moonbeard


This is an internet-comic (a comic that is on the internet).

It is updated once every harvest moon. Or, after an especially bountiful harvest, weekly. Maybe Thursday.

James Squires is the creator and he lives in Wellington, New Zealand and he draws pictures and puts them on the internet.



The mostly black and white and sometimes red, blue or green comic appeals to me in a very strange way. The depth of some comics is also very surprising. Perhaps this is because I’m just lookin to be amused with an interesting comic and not to be knowledge blasted.


This comic is unlike many i have viewed. It’s original, got a tiny cultish following, and the cute drawings are just plain awesome. The innocence of the illustrations sets up a background that the dialogue and imagery usually completely destroy by the time the punchline hits.

The comic is visually similar to Cyanide and Happiness in that the illustrations are adorable and the humor is very similar, both using absurdist comedy and unexpectedness.
