Kickstarter of the Day: Save Pepe

Pepe the Frog started out innocently enough as a character in the comic book BOY’S CLUB by California-based artist Matt Furie. However, after going viral and being appropriated by the alt-right, his image became an unwitting hate symbol. Horrified by Pepe’s misuse, Matt killed him off in comic-form earlier this year. But with your help the legend of Pepe won’t end there!

While understanding that there’s no way to fully control the internet or how people use Pepe’s image, Matt and Jason Furie have launched a Kickstarter to positively resurrect Pepe as a universal symbol for peace, love and acceptance through the creation of a brand new comic in the spirit of the original BOY’S CLUB! See more images of the original Pepe and info about the campaign below.

Webcomic Name by Alex Norris

Alex Norris’ webcomic name is Webcomic Name and each instalment ends with the exact same punchline. It shouldn’t be funny but there’s something really great about the innocent way Alex approaches each idea. Have a look at some more below!

Jeff Keane Drew Lynda Barry into Family Circus

I love this. American cartoonist Lynda Barry has just been immortalized in The Family Circus by cartoonist Jeff Keane (aka Jeffy), who took over the strip created by his father Bil Keane (love seeing their signatures together). I would have assumed Lynda Barry would hate a comic like this, and Jeff Keane even asked her friend why she liked it so much, saying “It’s not a ‘cool’ comic strip”. Lynda posted this reply on her blog:

“Dearest Jeffy K,

Know this: Love is ALWAYS cool.

XOX

Cousin Lynda B.”

 

Gotta love Lynda Barry! Ernie Pook’s Comeek for life! Read more about her love and respect for the Keane’s strip on her blog here, and if you feel so inclined, read more Family Circus here.
