webcomics as social commentary

Not gonna beat around the bush here with poetic prose: Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is one of my favourite comics ever. No other pop culture manages to so casually normalise people of colour and gay relationships. And even multiracial gay relationships! The punchline always lies elsewhere; sexual orientation and race are, if you will, the supporting cast of the joke. In every single strip, it could just as well be a white/heterosexual. Which makes it so freaking awesome that the artist has chosen to say: it could just as well not be white/heterosexual.

Also… it’s hilarious and super smart and poignant.
