Quail Effect

He just had to say it...

Captain Quail 62 - Chased (Feb. 28, 2014)

Hey You! Yeah you. Not the guy behind you, you. You like webcomics? I mean, you're here right? You must like webcomics, at least a little. Or at least be interested in this webcomic, otherwise why would you be here? If you came here looking for QuailMan, can't help you, sorry. If you came here looking for The Adventures of Captain Quail, congrats! You're in the right place. This is a webcomic about birds, and space, and terrible puns. We, that is to say, the artist and I, quite like it, but we create it so we may be a little biased. We're hoping you take a look around and like it too. 

If you want to hear about webcomics other than this comic, we've got you covered there too. Just go back two comics, and you'll get to hear us talk about a webcomic we like. Do it again, and find another one. Neat, right? We really enjoy talking about comics, we always have, and we're putting our time where our mouth is by creating this one.

If all that clicking is too much, no sweat. Today is a Friday, a glorious, hopefully rainy Friday (I like rain, ok?) and we're going to talk about a webcomic we think is awesome, right here, right now. This week we want to highlight a comic that was suggested to us by another comics creator (hi Megs): MFK. MFK (nope, I don't know what it stands for either) is a fantastic romp about a boy and a girl in a desert land as harsh as the sun that beats down on it. The comic has great art, an engaging story, and achieves something impressive in any medium: believable characters. MFK has characters that seem like they could exist in our world just as easily as they live in the world of their creator. If you've been reading our posts for a while, then you know that we've featured a lot of western/wilderness/desert-themed comics on this site, and it is MFK that has brought me to realize why that might be such a popular setting. 

A comic with heavy backgrounds and complex environments often has to give part of its attention to giving the environment the right treatment, rather than focusing 100% on the characters. The setting of MFK creates just enough background to suspend disbelief, then focuses the reader's attention entirely on the characters and how they handle interacting with each other. If you're looking for another comic to add to your reading list, MFK is most definitely worth the time.

Thanks, and see you next week.
