Reptilis Rex


Rating: 4/5- Humorous and Tactfully Handles Larger Political Issues

Reptilis Rex takes place in a world where it turns out that an advanced society of sentient reptile people called reptiloids live inside of the hollow Earth and now they have to integrate into human society.  It follows the maladjusted former emperor, his slave, and a reptiloid sympathizer at a hardware store.  It updates four times a week.

What Makes It Awesome
Reptilis Rex is overall a very well written comic.  It combines together a very cartoony and vibrant art style with a good humor.  However, this is mixed in with well-written character and plot development as well as handling of several political and societal issues.  Unlike some other webcomics that try to handle hot button issues like organized religion, politics, or race relations, I think Reptilis Rex does a relatively good job, mixing together commentary on real world instances of these issues and parallels within reptiloid society.

My Thoughts
I think that Reptilis Rex is an excellently done comic.  Out of the comics that I read which frequently address issues of politics or religion, Reptilis Rex’s combination of lighthearted humor and fully fleshed out plot lines puts it head and shoulders above the rest.  I definitely recommend this comic to people looking for a well written and good comic that simultaneously tackles serious issues in a lighthearted way.
