Webcomics tend to fragment themselves into easily recognizable subcategories. There’s the parody strip, for one. And then there’s a subset of the parody strip: the one where the characters are portrayed as wide-eyed children. It’s kinda like Tiny Toons or Muppet Babies…. Well, actually, it’s more like the super-deformed or chibi characters that you see in manga and anime. Matt Moylan, for example, combines super-deformed characters with Transformers to create his webcomic, Lil Formers — which may yet be a subject of a future Webcomic Overlook.
“Lil Formers,” however, is just beginning. Today, we’re going to look at a webcomic that may be either drastically changing format or on its last legs. It a series created by M. Parkinson called Year One.
