It’s time for another round of Webcomic Wednesday, my alliterative attempt to share and review my list of daily webcomic reading with you, my eager audience of anonymous internet surfers.
Today’s comic is “Least I Could Do” by Ryan Sohmer and Lar Desouza. Now, before you go eagerly clicking that link, I feel I should warn you that this is another comic that is not for the prudish among us. While I have yet to see an illustrated boob or penis, the humor (and base concept) are very sexual in nature. It’s sort of like Cinemax in the 90’s: it’s not really porn, but you wouldn’t watch it in front of your boss.
The comic centers around Rayne, a 20-something man-child with too much disposable income and an affinity for casual sex, video games, Disney movies, and Red Bull.
No, it’s not for kids. But it’s damn funny. Yes, I’m a feminist. Yes, some of the humor is sexist. But it’s so over-the-top that you can either be a) really offended and go write angry letters about misogyny and the objectification of women, or you can b) laugh your ass off because it’s a fucking webcomic, people. I choose b. Plus, Sohmer seems to offend all parties equally, so it’s hard to nit pick.
The story lines are simple and punchline-based, and usually centered around something nice and nerdy, like Lord of the Rings, Transformers, Batman, or Ninja Turtles. Or they center around underage gymnasts and anal sex. There’s something for everyone.
The art has gone through a few revisions, but it’s current incarnation has been around for two years or more and is consistently good. There are also a few videos on the site that preview an animated version of the strip, which are pretty entertaining.
The comic updates 6 days a week (Mon-Sat), and you can pretty much jump in whenever, without having to delve into the archives for an extended period of time. Although doing so will provide you with a little more background on the characters other than “OMG TEH SEX”.
And yes, I do think poop jokes are funny.
