Today’s featured webcomic is 1930 Nightmare Theatre (part of the Dumm Comics collective) by Ricky Garduno. It takes the aesthetics and character design of early black and white animation (think “Bimbo” from Betty Boop and you come close to the protagonist, Kimbo) and flips them on their head with bizarre, warped and completely inappropriate humor. I started writing RAD RAZ before I saw this comic, and thought RAZ was pretty wild and weird. 1930s takes a similar approach, but with an all-out, no-holds-barred attitude that makes RAZ seem tame in comparison.

1930s Nightmare Theatre updates every Thursday at Dumm Comics. Dumm Comics has 5 separate ongoing comic series, one for each day of the week. They are all stellar, so might check the rest while you’re there.
