This pick comes from our Permissions Assistant, Melissa Merciez: Close To Home is a cartoon that I recently started reading on a daily basis. I like that it’s about simple everyday events that happen in everyday life with a fun view or twist.
This Week’s GoComics Staff Pick: The Fusco Brothers
This pick comes from our Assistant Managing Editor, Clint Hooker: There are many reasons I count The Fusco Brothers as one of my favorite comics, not the least of which is that creator J.C. Duffy submits his work consistently ahead of deadlines. I also like the strips’ appearance, which is generally a horizontal single panel for dailies. In a world of shrinking comics pages, The Fusco Brothers holds up well. And Duffy’s writing strength is in producing gags that don’t feel like gags, even in limited space. His jokes develop quickly without feeling hurried, and are concluded with masterful payoffs. But beyond the aesthetics and deadlines, Duffy has endowed his titular characters with a humor that is right up my alley. Many of the gags are things we would like to say, but rarely have the courage (or is it the good sense?) to utter to another human being. Whether they’re pickup lines at happy hour, a therapy session or even in front of a judge, The Fusco Brothers holds nothing back.
