Anyone who has ever read Dilbert knows that the corporate life can be a soul-sucking drain on the human spirit. However, the big office-type environment isn’t the only place that causes that type of stress and humor at the same time. Today’s Web Comics Wednesday will help to deconstruct the Corporate Life and show how it makes great inspiration for art.
If you’re new to this, here’s the scoop: Each Wednesday we will showcase five indie web comics. Each will be categorized and will be judged by ART, STORY and APPEAL. This will give you an opportunity to support indie artists and the amazing work they do.
This weeks comics will explore Corporate Life. Without further ado, let’s GO!:
Comic: Urban Jungle
Story & Art: David Wilborn
About: Zack is the only human being in an office full of animals. He does developer support for a pharmaceutical software company. Single, thirty-something, and hanging on to the last shreds of his optimism. He was raised by wolves.
Comic: Business Casual
Story & Art: Joe Combs
About: Created by Combs while sketching his coworkers during a day long video-conference meeting, Business Casual deals with the often-annoying goings-on of the workplace. Business Casual began as a side-project for Combs, but eventually grew into it’s own thing.
Comic: Office Rats
Story & Art: Aaron Cook & Keith Bahrenburg
About: Office Rats was created by Aaron Cook and is written and illustrated by Aaron Cook and Keith Bahrenburg. Office Rats is loosely based on the lives and experiences of Aaron and Keith, though the truth may be stretched a bit. Deal with it! Be sure to check out their page on Facebook and become a fan.
Comic: Lemon Inc.
Story & Art: Tim Lai
About: Lemon Inc. is a webcomic about a couple of kids who run a lemonade stand that they treat like an office environment.
Andy Lemon, a pompus and ambitious seven-year-old recruits his loyal and hard working best friend, Jeff Katzenburg as his “business partner” and hires other kids and even stuffed animals as employees for his business. All indications would suggest that they are on track to conquer the lemonade industry… Until a bunch of girls open a competing lemonade stand!
