Jeph Jacques’ Questionable Content has been one of my favourite daily reads for a few years due to its relatable characters, sharp art style and sly science fictional elements. Jeph describes QC as “an online comic strip that is ostensibly about romance, indie rock, little robots, and the problems people have,” while its Wikipedia article expands that the “storytelling style combines romantic melodrama, sitcom, humor about indie rock music, and sexual humor while considering questions of relationships, futurism, artificial intelligence, sexuality and dealing with emotional trauma”.
With more than two thousand pages and 5 new pages added each week, I can understand why someone might be intimidated by Questionable Content, but the strip has become so polished and well-rounded that it’s worth the effort of getting into the ongoing story. Jeph’s art has improved tremendously since the first pages were made and so have his storytelling techniques. While the comic started in indie rock space, it has grown to be one of the best webcomics being published.
