Andrew Arnold gets around to reviewing Derek Kirk Kim's Same Difference.
Among other things, Kim has an impressively varied cartooning style. While 'Super Unleaded' gets rendered with a cinematic look that underscores its naturalism, 'Oliver Pikk' has a zany, Saturday morning cartoonishness. 'Same Difference' deftly combines these two styles, blending a realistic approach with some silly caricature. For a debut, 'Same Difference' shows a remarkable level of accomplishment at comicbook craft. Although many web comics transfer badly to the printed page, only a few minor pieces in the book suffer, mostly due to blurry typeface.
