Hey, here's a strip I can really get behind. Doctor Faust is a gag strip, simply told, well-drawn, and funny. In an ocean of webcomics that are often obscure, esoteric, experimental, mind-bending, convoluted, navel-gazing and sometimes downright indecipherable, that's saying something. The craft of Claus Thomsen's work is evident, with period backdrop and costumes boiled down to bare essentials. The jokes are broad and direct, and the colors are a little bit earthy, befitting the strip's Dark Ages setting. I don't know if Thomsen will consider this a backpat or a slap, but Doctor Faust seems like something that could have come out of the Mort Walker studio. So it goes for the laughs, but if you're the type that prefers something more to chew on in your webcomic, the gags revolve around such weighty themes as sin, redemption, faith vs. knowledge, etc. I've said too much, this strip doesn't need explaining. Just read and enjoy.
