Time.Comix Review of Derek Kirk Kim’s Same Difference

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.

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.


  1. Good for Derek. I hope he make a living out of it.

  2. The first and so far only thing I’ve ever preordered at a comicbook shop.
