Borb #2Jason Little
"Borb #2" by Jason Little
Borb details the slapstick misfortunes of the titular hero, an alcoholic homeless man. These minicomics collect the daily strip Jason Little drew between April and June of 2013, as seen on the web. The strip is drawn in nostalgic homage to daily strips of the 20s and 30s like Gasoline Alley and Little Orphan Annie, and yet depicts the real and timeless horrors of brutal homelessness. And it's hilarious!
Borb no. 2: We meet Borb's fantasy girlfriend, and Borb wreaks havoc on the subway with his bodily effluent. Humor gives way to pathos when we get a glimpse at Borb's back-story.
