Questionable Content, Vol. 5

By Jeph Jacques

Rating: 4 stars

And so the great Questionable Content binge comes to an end. The fifth volume of QC shows an artist who continues to mature in his storytelling as well as introducing some new characters (Cosette, although not by name, and Marigold). Sven gets an intern/conscience and Faye starts to open up some more. There are several laugh out loud moments, including the last comic in the collection, featuring Pintsize and Momo.

The themes that I know will be coming up are still being explored, including Marten and Dora’s relationship and Faye’s drinking. And here’s me thinking that webcomic writers just made stuff up on the day ;-). There are seeds being sown that will be reaped hundreds, if not thousands, of comics down the line. It’ll be a while before I get to binge on paper again since, as of the time of writing, volume 5 is the latest paper collection available (and also, I know what to expect at the end of volume 6, so I may well wait until the one after before buying more).

But for now, I was trying to persuade myself that I have many real books to read, but who am I kidding, I’m going to go online and pick up from where this leaves off.
