Webcomic alert: DR. SLUMP by Akira Toriyama

dr_slump_pg7.jpg
Best known for his hectic DRAGONBALL series, Akira Toriyama is probably one of the most successful cartoonists of all time. His first big hit was DR. SLUMP, a slapstick humor strip about an inventor who creates a little girl robot who is hopelessly naive about the world.

Hijinks ensue. Hijinks that anyone who likes FAMILY GUY will appreciate. This is not sophisticated humor but it is energetic, wildly imaginative cartooning at the highest level. It’s also world building in the classic McCloudian-approved way, with the setting of Penguin Village, like Springfield or Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, a friendly place filled with colorful characters.

Viz has a 20-page preview of the first issue up, and you can read the early volumes in digital format. If we could embed the preview, we would but…Viz doesn’t allow that but go check it out.
