Jerry's Journal Comic Review

     The indie comic Jerry's Journal is a humorous comic in the vein of the creepier moments of classic Looney Tunes. However it mainly taps into the sense of dark comedy done in the early felix the cat cartoons, specifically the ones where Felix killed himself. This is not to say that the book is terribly morose because the cartoonish and seemingly simple art keeps this from ever happening. 

     Neil Fitzpatrick, the creator of Jerry's Journal, told me before I read this comic that "it has an edge" and he is right. The reason is the simple psychological examination of life in the writing which is tempered by the how the strips look. A straightforward page design also helps with the tempering.

I recommend this artist, and his website where you can look find more of his work is Neiljam.com
