Recent global events have revealed that the world is a dark and uncertain place. Do you know what the best treatment is for that? Laughing, living, and loving. But let’s not shy away from the dark and unexpected, as it may provide fodder for comedy. Everyone requires therapy at some point in their lives, and laughter may be the most effective cure (consult with your doctor).
In his comics, Zach Cranor uses dark humour and absurdity to create a bizarre cocktail of hilarity. But, who knows, maybe that’s what the doctor ordered? Who knows, ‘Last Place Comics’ might just be exactly what you needed today!
Here’s what Zach had to say about his comics in a prior interview, which you can read about here and here. “Smoothly, my normal description of Last Place is ‘a goofy webcomic where things rarely go well.'” I started it as a method to make my friends laugh in college; I thought I was a very funny man but had the courage to do something like live comedy, so comics were a way for me to attempt to be funny without being social or having the social skills. On DeviantArt, I kind of fell into a little following.
“Inspiration is a difficult thing to come by, hehe. For approximately a year, my friends had to peer pressure me to get back into drawing comics. No one who has met me has ever described me as extremely passionate. I felt terrible enough to start making them again after Chesca of Litterbox Comics handed me her old Cintiq, but it’s been a pleasant experience. I think I’m attempting to create a comic that I’d like to read, and making myself laugh is a criterion I hold in high regard. So, I believe keeping myself accountable to my own self-imposed standard keeps me motivated.”
