I've been trying to put my finger on what it is about Cow and Boy that puts me off and I think I might have it. First, a cow doesn't work as mentor character (cows are too dumb, Gary Larson proved that) and, second, a large animal on four spindly legs just can't do things like this:
That is just some terrible anthropomorphization. How exactly does that leg move that way?
In contrast, Darby Conley shows how to do funny animals right.
Cats lounging around in laundry baskets with big tall drinks by their sides, that is funny. It doesn't matter what they're actually saying.
Funny drawing=funny comics. Awkward drawing=awkward comics.
