The Saturday Comics: Apt. 3-G

9 Apr

NEW April 9, 2011

I’ve complained about comics that fall behind the times, like Mary Worth and Rex Morgan. I’ve also commended Mandrake the Magician for keeping up with the times. Here is one that tried but failed to keep up.

Apt. 3-G has been around since quite possibly The Dawn of Time. Winess the horribly awkward way the strip tries to sound young. The only way the word “hip” applies to the characters is when one of them breaks one.

Seriously, a reference to The Shadow? C’mon!

    Now I see how you can like the bad Mandrake strip: by comparison with stuff like this! This is really the worst thing I’ve seen in quite a long time, and somebody gets paid to churn it out? Wow…

      I could have gone on. In fact I did but I deleted most of it. “Trey,” “brothers from different planets,” “it makes me think about life and stuff. Seriously, you know what I mean?” “Love hit me like a ton of bricks.” It is obviously a poor attempt at sounding current by someone who is woefully behind the times.

    I’ve never seen this strip before, but thanks for sharing.
