Hello and welcome to Webcomic Wednesday! Each Wednesday I’ll highlight a new webcomic, and let you know why I like it so. This week I’m looking into one of the more weird webcomics I frequent, and that is Ryan Pequin’s Three Word Phrase.
Let me just say it right off the bat, Three Word Phrase isn’t for all ages. Pequin’s seemingly insane ramblings often veer into NSFW territory, and while not every comic has a dick joke or deals with more mature material, a good portion do. So don’t show it to your kids.
Plus I say mature, but I guess this comic is anything but. Pequin seems to put whatever odd thought crosses his mind that day into an artistic for, and it yields unpredictable results. Whether he’s replacing the words pop or pope for porp; or he’s talking about Gregor the man who wakes up one day to find out he’s a bug, only to live a normal happy life, no subject remains untouched.
This can lead to a very hit-or-miss approach to his writing, as some comics seem better left to the confines of his mind. But when Pequin hits gold, it is at its most beautiful. This won’t be a comic for everyone (especially kids) but it’s worth a try.
You can find the insane, yet unique ramblings of Three Word Phrase here. They’re short and sweet, so give it a shot.
