Barbs

Reading about unpleasant fictional people isn’t something I enjoy very much, but there seems to be an entire genre of comics devoted to the exploits of people that seem to completely lack social skills. People that never think about another person’s view point, only seem to care about themselves, and seem generally rude. (No, this isn't me. Or at least I hope not...)

I was all ready to lump this comic into that same group, until I read the back cover and saw that apparently this is based on a real person and a real trip the creator took to visit him. That kind of makes me even sadder. I hope the person portrayed in the comic doesn’t really act like this, and the version in this comic is just exaggerated for comic effect, the alternative just depresses me. I guess ultimately I prefer not to know one way or the other.
