The eighty-eighth comic: #901 Sardine in Outer Space

I have to say that in this case, dealing with a comic that's clearly not aimed at me is quite frustrating. I'm sure that it's fine in its category, but it's hard to see how this comic aimed at young kids is that important. The jokes are obviously kid friendly, following an anarchic set up of naughty jokes, kids being naughty and all of that enabled by the fun parent. What really gets to me is that the entire story line is immediate, throwing in sudden changes and expectations and just feeling unfulfilling. It is as if it's written by a five year olds - including their sudden "but they win because of this new thing" twists - which ultimately feels unsatisfying.

I'm sure it works for the target audience, but as a comic on a list of recommendations, it doesn't hold up.
