From the discussion in another thread: a conversation about Achewood should ensue.
Personally, my favorite storyline is the one in which personal goods that transport the user into a realm of magical realism begin proliferating out of Mexico. Do you have a favorite storyline, or did Achewood never click for you?
Roast Beef Kazenzakis is one of the best and most relatable characters ever
i have read all of Achewood at least twice and i’m probably gonna do it a third time soon. it’s on my short list of pieces of media that just… curled up inside my soul, and stayed there forevermore. like it’s an inextricable part of my sense of humor and the way i speak and see the world. Sorry, i know that’s overwrought but damn. it’s so good.
i first read it in high school (it was popular to post random good strips from it on basically every forum i frequented, including this one obviously). i didn’t get it at all! i just couldn’t parse it. then one day i saw this one
If tou ever get the urge to read everything in orer of publication, including blogs and such, someone in the rather active Achewood fan community on Facebook put this together at some point; http://www.stuffisawesome.com/achewood/.
I had all of the original run of strip collections, six or so books, but I gave them to an ex when I was breaking up with her when I was like 19 explicitly to say “sorry for being such a difficult partner, I want you to have this objectively decent thing at the end to make up for it” and while that relationship pops up relatively seldom enough in my periodic mental wheel of regrets that I think it was a good call, I’ve wished I still had them for years and years, so this is nice news
