Kevin and Kell, by Bill Holbrook

One of the classics, Kevin and Kell is one of the oldest webcomics ever detected by science, and it’s quality stuff. It’s an anthropomorphic comic, set in a world where humans never evolved (it’s one of those parallel universe thingies) and animals – all of them – have evolved to fill the “Most Intelligent Species” niche. In this world, when they talk about mixed marriages, they don’t mean a mere mixture of cultures within the same species. Oh deary me no.

There are, of course, plenty of computer-related jokes, but plenty of social comment as well if you keep your brain switched on while eyeballing the excellent artwork. While the satire is usually gentle, there’s plenty of it.

Here’s an extract of Bill Holbrook’s own description of the origins of his strip :

Years ago, Kevin Kindle the rabbit and Kell Dewclaw the wolf met in an online chat room. After falling head over heels for each other, they decided to meet in person. It wasn’t until then that they realized they were from separate ends of the food chain. However, the relationship they’d developed online overcame Kevin’s instinct for self-preservation, and Kell’s heart melted from such a demonstration of trust. Kell was energetic and vivacious, qualities Kevin had found lacking in herbivores. Such a relationship between predator and prey was certainly doomed to fail but these two opposites were determined to make things work. They eventually married knowing good and well they would be outcasts in their own society.

Suitable for all ages. Enjoy.
