All throughout May, I’ll spotlight a different webcomic. Like with the month of independent comics and the month of LGBT comics, I figure I will let you webcomic creators out there suggest your comic for spotlight during this month. So if you want me to spotlight your comic, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Today we look at a cute all ages strip about a young boy named Carl who travels through time with his faithful robot, Zip. It is written and drawn by Travis Lanham.
Carl is a boy genius, but even though he is quite intelligent, he still is lacking a bit in the common sense department. So in many ways, his robot Zip must be the voice of reason on their adventures.
Here are the first five strips, so you can get an idea what it is all like…
And that’s basically the gist of the series. It is really a charming series with a good sense of humor.
A cool thing Lanham does is that after every five regular strips, he does one giant-sized color strip.
Here is the latest one…
Recently, Lanhan did an extended riff on a fictional character that Zip invented to entertain Carl when they were stuck in cave. It was a fun “Strange Adventures”-esque story.
If you’re interested on going through an adventure through time with Carl and Zip (which has been going on since late 2009, every Wednesday and Friday), you can begin reading the strip here.
