It’s still November technically. Okay, last special WotW for this month. It’s a big one for me, so bear with me.
The first webcomic I got seriously into was Everything Jake by Mike Rosenzweig. I read it all throughout high school, and in a lot of ways it prepared me for college because that’s what it was: a comic about a guy named Jake that goes to college. At least that’s how it started. From the beginning it seemed like this was just a little story about what it’s like to be clueless and trying to make your way through school, and what was most interesting is that this was a concept that flipped off and on. It wasn’t always just a story about trying to get laid, or trying not to fail classes, or to strengthen friendships. Jesus, sometimes it isn’t even a comic. There was so much going on with this story that I was amazed by it, and it played a part in my understanding that you don’t need to stay cemented to one particular genre or means of storytelling.
