Schlock on Wired: It's Number One! And It's Bad For Kids!
I'm thrilled to see Schlock Mercenary listed at #1 on the recent Wired Blog Network post about webcomics. Unfortunately the entry is entitled "Ten Great Webcomics You Should Not Share With Your Kids," which kind of undermines my whole "family-friendly" claim.
Oh well. These stories can't be told without depicting at least some violence, and while the comic may appear to be glorifying violence (okay, it IS) there are also important moral lessons to be found.
I'm sure they're in here somewhere.
Thanks go out to my GeekDad fans Patrick Orndorff and Brian Little for the free publicity and the kind words. If you gents are keeping your kids away from Schlock Mercenary you're better parents than I am...
