Rating: 4/5 – Very Funny Story but Weak Art.
by ComicSpectrum reviewer Stephen Bretall.
A dumb guy who just wants to get girls and quick cash volunteers for an experiment that allows him to see alternate versions of himself in other timelines. He uses this power to get dates and avoid bad movies, but things start getting messy when he gives his secret away…

What’s Awesome About It?
This comic has a really interesting premise done quite well. The alternate timelines are presented as side-by-side series of panels, doing things you can really only do with the medium of comics and doing it in an interesting way. The main character, while dumb, is likable and comedic. The comic is fairly new but already the seeds of an interesting story and exciting/humorous plot developments have begun to blossom.
This brings us to the elephant in the room, the art. The art gets the point across, for the most part, and is just cartoony enough to be passable. Unfortunately, that’s about all the positives I can say about it. I thought the MS-Paint look really detracted from my reading experience as a whole – although it’s a great testament to the writing that the art didn’t turn me away from the strip entirely.
This comic is an enjoyable read and I am very interested with where the story will lead. The art is definitely a detriment, but it’s worth reading the strip anyway to get to the story. And hey, if you find the art decent or even good, then all the better, as it’s the main thing holding the comic back, in my opinion!
