I just rambled into Plutocrat Coutry Club today and I was really impressed. This comic by Ryan O’Connell kind of helped me with the aching void that the hiatus of A Lesson Is Learned But the Damage Is Irreversible has left in my webcomic soul. The art is generally of a similar soft, almost-watercolor like style and O’Connell also seems to be aiming at a darkly humorous, maybe even slightly shocking tone — but without employing formal gags. He has a small archive — all from this year. Also, absent one two-parter, he hasn’t been interested in storylines.
I like it and I hope he keeps working at it. He certainly has a vivid artistic style and I think with his sensibility he could create a pretty memorable comic series.
