I was reading PVP the other day and there was a banner ad for Least I could do. I, being the curious type, clicked on it and found a comic that is most definitely NOT for children.
But, as always, I think of you, dear readers, and I forged ahead and began reading the archives.
The Least I Could Do
has been around since 2003. It is written by Ryan Sohmer and originally drawn by Trevor Adams. The strip follows the lives of Rayne, John, Issa, Noel and Mick, all of which are in their 20s. The strip deals mostly with Rayne and his sexual exploits, as well as his -- rarely -- non-sexual exploits. Did I mention that this is definitely NOT a strip for those under 18?
The strip contains a lot of sexual and politically incorrect material, but I enjoy it. I'd like to say that Rayne is a pig (and that insults pigs), but, if you start reading from here
, you'll see that there's a heart in the pig.
You don't need to read through the whole of the archives, but it will help with some inside jokes and character development. What I found most interesting is that, as I said earlier, the strip is written by Ryan Sommer and originally drawn by Trevor Adams (he's moved on to draw Ardra
.) Since I don't know the history, I don't know why Trevor moved on, but on 7/18/2003 the last comic drawn by him was posted. Then there was a guest comic by Lar deSouza and Chad WM Porter came aboard. I found a posting by Ryan as to why Chad left, here's a link to it. Now, Lar deSouza is drawing the strip.
I honestly have to say that I enjoyed Chad's rendition the most. I'm not really into Lar's style. However, this is not to say that Lar's not a good artist, no he's excellent. I just preferred Chad's versions. However, the art of a strip is really only one portion of the enjoyment. The storyline and script is really more important and Ryan's stories are on the mark. Rayne is a total cad, but a cad in a likeable way.
So, take the time to stop by Least I Could Do
. You won't regret it, unless you're offended by promiscuity.
