A friend of mine recently fired this at me on Facebook. I guess I’m starting to get a reputation as the “comic guy” in my group.
Two Lumps is a fun little online-only read about a couple of housecats named Ebenezer and Snooch. Comics about pets are one of my favorite types, and Two Lumps makes me think of how I imagine any webcomic of my own might turn out. The authors sum up their take on it pretty clearly:
Q: Why a cat comic? Aren’t there enough of those already?
A: Yes, but we don’t really care. Garfield and a few others do cheap, wholesome, bland feel-good comics. As you know, neither of us is given to that kind of humor.
I am primarily a dog person myself, but my wife and I were found by a cat last year, and so I now have some perspective on a cat’s state of mind and behaviors. I think that Ebenezer and Snooch are both more realistic depictions of how a cat might think or behave in human terms, provided we as their
owners helper monkeys didn’t know it at the time.
