Skadi the Barbarian

1.5/5 – There’s not much here to enjoy
Premise
Skadi is a barbarian who travels around punching people and strange looking animals and being angry. This webcomic is done by Katie Rice, a contestant on Strip Search, airing now at: http://www.penny-arcade.com/strip-search
What’s Awesome About It?
Honestly, there’s not a whole lot to like about this comic. It’s done is a highly episodic comic strip format with no particular story and few recurring characters aside from Skadi, the main character. At the same time, the little bits of humor there are aren’t really funny, usually just being a fart joke or punching an animal or something along those lines. The art is odd and somewhat interesting looking, but it’s also very crowded.
My Thoughts

I am personally not much of a fan of this comic. I just had no motivation to turn the page – the only draw seemed to be the wacky antics of Skadi, but there’s only so much cartoon animal punching that one can take before one simply loses the will to continue.
