Katie’s “Camp Weedonwancha”

This looks exactly like something a Nickelodeon artist would make. As a kid who grew up on the seminal lineup of Nicktoons – Doug, Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy – Katie’s comic fulfills my childhood nostalgia to a T. Setting kids free in a strange environment and needing them to cope with a series of bizarre trials and be required to cope with being left unsupervised… seriously, childhood fantasies fulfilled. I’ve loved Katie since the first week and I love what she’s doing here. I want to see more, more, more!

Finally, we have Team Tangent…

Abby’s “The Last Halloween”

I’ve really loved Abby’s bizarre, absurdist humor, both in the series eliminations and reading through her personal comics. I just love it. This one didn’t quite strike me as well. I’m all for more serious comics, but this one is particularly grim, at times bleeding over the strip’s sardonic humor. The strips (or scene) presented do a lot of introduction and don’t stand alone as well as some of her other work. That said, I’m still very interested in what comes next if she’s allowed to pursue it.

Now, for the episode in question…
