Yeargh! Tis Brillant! Yeargh! Sep 19, 2007
Hilarious and fun, Scurvy Dogs is fun romp following the lives of olde time pirates dropped in modern day America with humorous consequences.
I'm Biased... Jun 19, 2007
I'm biased, since I'm one of the book's creators. We had a lot of fun working on this book, and I think it shows. If you're a fan of Monty Python, Adult Swim, or the Simpsons, you'll probably find something to enjoy in this collection, as long as you can learn to live with my "no-I-didn't-go-to-Art-School-I-got-a-regular-college-degree" art-style, and our "just-trying-to-make-each-other-laugh-so-hard-we-snort-Fanta-out-of-our-noses" writing style.
Fun indie humor Sep 1, 2005
While not exactly a masterpiece, Scurvy Dogs is an always entertaining and clever series. The writing is similar in many ways to that of Adult Swim cartoons or popular webcomics, but always manages to be unpredictable and un-cliche in its own way. The art isn't spectacular, but personally I feel it adds to the comic, if it were too well drawn the art would clash with the slapdash, pop culture slant of the writing. Definetly recommended.
