If we’re to take the title of Kevin Forbes’s Simulated Comic Product at its word, we can only conclude conclude that, on a day-to-day basis, it is at least as tasty as the real thing.
His recent Easter-themed comic, Eggs, is in a league of its own, though. In three short panels it tells the story of two quick-thinking children who narrowly thwart the escape of a genetic freak. Or of two ruthless brats who unhesitatingly betray a gentle victim of science back to his creator-tormentors. Take your pick. Forbes doesn’t shove an interpretation down your throat, and that’s what elevates this particular strip to the level of genius.
