Let me be clear: I like Cho’s style of drawing. It doesn’t bother me that he completely lifted it from Berke Breathed’s Bloom County. And I don’t mind that Cho promiscuously mixes realistic-looking humans with semi-anthropomorphic animals–another Bloom County trick. Breathed put Bloom County to sleep in 1989–if cartoon scavengers want pick over its carcass, I say let them.
No, what bothers me about Liberty Meadows is that it’s NOT FUNNY. With it’s limp jokes, big-busted bimbos, and McCarthy-era approach to romance, it reads like the bastard child of Berke Breathed and Bunny Hoest.
