(From Home Run Comic. Click on the thumbnail for full sized whoa!)

Today's Home Run Comic hit me just about perfectly. Maybe it's the minimalist art style Lin uses, all black lines -- in ways the suggestions of form rather than the completions -- which juxtaposes with the smooth geometries, abstracts and incredible use of color that Kandinsky is known for.

Or maybe it's the twisting of the punchline. I mean, the idea of someone who has no interest in going to the Museum but instead wants to surf the internet, leading to his "bringing Kandinsky to them," is a relatively obvious joke. Having said character get nailed with a sense of understanding in the middle of that joke is a twist. And the twist worked for me.

Since Home Run is pretty much the conflict between Joel's inner world and the demands of the outer world, this particular plotline should be interesting. I'm looking forward to what happens next.
