|Even Diana hates Candy Crush.|
Written and drawn by Smith, übërbällöön just started life and looks to be a chance for the cartoonist to play in the "GIF" sandbox. But instead of a screen cap with "witty" text, Smith is providing the art and something a bit more clever than #FACEPALM or #FAIL or whatever else trends.
It's actually a brilliant idea, especially since Smith placed it on Tumblr, where people can easily share and things can go viral at the drop of a hat. The comics are single panel gags, so that also makes them conducive to sharing.
This is exactly the kind of thing that leads to book contracts, though given the licensed characters involved, that might be difficult. I don't know what the legalities would be on that.
Putting that aside, this is a really clever idea by Smith. Anyone who spends more than five minutes on the internet knows how popular memes, gifs, vines, and other things are. Why not show off your own skills and tab into that culture, while having fun doing it?
übërbällöön opened with a hysterical set of third-person paragraphs, indicating that unless you keep your eye on the comic daily, you will die. It's as convoluted as a Monty Python joke, and really sets up the series as a whole.
I don't know how long this project will go on, but it's been a lot of fun so far. Those who enjoy humor comics or enjoy a good gif moment should find a lot to like.
