#8 By Daniel Warner (Slave Labor Graphics)

Looshkin, the psychotic cat, is Daniel Warner’s version of Happy Noodle Boy, and if you don’t have any idea what I’m talking about, go read Johnny the Homicidal Maniac right fucking now. Looshkin (and, by default, Happy Noodle Boy) is hyper, psycho, constantly getting into predicaments with the locals, and always doing some strange act that makes no sense whatsoever. The set up (human/bear/cat) is similar to Garfield (human/dog/cat), except instead of a dog, it’s a bear, and instead of being stupid, it’s actually quite smart. And Looshkin is WAY more fucked up than Garfield could ever be. This comic is damn funny. My absolute favorite is the Tom & Jerry-esque chase skit with them running around trying to kill each other, all the while screaming dirty euphemisms. Fucking brilliant!
