Sore Thumbs follows a girl named Cecania after she returns home from college. She moves back in with her overly conservative mother and brother (Fairbanks) who drive her crazy. Fairbanks owns a "children's" video game store (which Mother paid for) that is going out of business due to the fact that no one will go within 200 feet of it. Cecania and Harmony make plans to take over Fairbanks and the store, sell some games people may actually like (things that include killing, etc.), and actually generate a profit.

bushwhacker2k 1/5
I don\'t get it... is it supposed to be funny? Everything just seems stupid...
blooper_boy 5/5
One of those weird comics that makes you laugh at yourself before you even realize that it\'s you. (Then you kick yourself for being so easily tricked.) Good artistry, not to much of much, and a plot that keeps you trolling through the archives till you\'ve read all of it.
WeaponRad 3/5
An acquired taste. Too one sided in its political agenda to ever get a lot of recognition.
Stormblazer 3/5
The political tones are... too much, even if I agree with some of them (though usually for different reasons).
Embodies the liberal side, both the good and bad parts of it.
Art is decent, it can be pretty funny sometimes.
EmberWolfe 3/5
its a good comic. not bad art. kind of weak jokes tho.
MrJoykill 3/5
the competision looks kinda grim
Falken 3/5
One of those strange comics that you read and dont really like at first, but grows on you forever.
L'ope 5/5
This comic is very hilarious. The characters are so off the wall that you can't help but laugh. They're opinions are exargerated and ironic and they know it and you know it so i don't see the problem. This is my favourite way of taking politics. The characters are fantastic and they all make me laugh. Fairbanks is the most adorable angry christian i ever saw. I think this comic was very ambitious in its mix of politics and gaming and i reckon they've pulled it off. The artwork is very pretty, as is the main character.
Traitorfish 3/5
While I agree with Wodan's political plans, I have to disagree about this comic- the art's good, if a little cliched-manga-y, the humours good, and the characters are only mildly annoying (keep in mind that all comic characters are annoying to some degree, with the exception of Hobbes. Good old Hobbes!)
wodan46 1/5
this a really stupid comic on all levels, and qualifies as one of the first webcomics I decided to drop after reading the archives.

Politically wise, I think we should put the government into the hands of an evil sentient robot clown. Things would be simple that way.
mos 3/5
this may not be the deepest of comics, or the funniest. But it does have its moments, and the art is good. it makes fun of conservatives and liberals alike, though you couldn't tell it from some of these comments. honestly, this comic isnt something someone can tell you if you will like it or not, just try it out and see.
Pudge_bar 1/5
People making fun of conservative one's in a "I hate the government", "We are crazy fun, people around me are not" and "the society must accept everyone whether they are good or bad" world.
Like someone said, the problem with Sorethumb is not the mixture of politics, society and gaming, but the problem is it's not good at it. C'mon, yeah it got good art but still the content is stupid and not funny in a hilarious way. So lame in a type.

One thing added, the gay society must thank the Christians for looking out for them and telling them to stop doing stupid stuff like marriege. Anyway if you don't get what I mean, it is like the sheperds are just finding their lost sheeps.

Anyway stop my ranting, after all God give us free will and I got no bullshit to stop them on what they are doing in life. :)
Subhuman 4/5
Ignore the political bashing (it's often heavy-handed), ignore the gaming humor (too inconsistent). Ignore everything but the delightfully bizarre characters, the out-of-left-field punchlines, and the infectious cynicism lurking just beneath. This clearly isn't a comic for everyone, but if you appreciate well-done humor and a quirky outlook, Sore Thumbs is highly recommended.
i love the inking.and the girls are hot.
aod 2/5
nice art and all, but the political jokes aren't smart or subversive enough to be funny, and the attempt at making it a gaming comic wasn't done very well
Craze_fan 4/5
Ultra-liberaaaal, but still hilarious. Also, it caricatures conservatives so much that unless you're a dick then there's no reason to be offended (and if you're as bad as Fairbanks, you deserve the cold grave that awaits when you're the first one against the wall when the revolution comes =P)
Abby 2/5
I'm not real fond of this one. I gave it a shot and read through all the archives, but I couldn't identify with any of the characters. Also, the art actually seemed to decrease in quality as I progressed through the archives.
Misanthrope 1/5
Rather than engage in any sort of honest discussion of the issues, let's just portray all members of the opposite political party as bigotted hypocrites! Throw some T-&-A in there, maybe some tired references to 1st Ammendment protection with regard to videogames circa 1999, and bam! Instant webcomic popularity. 'Course, the only reason it's a KeenSPOT comic is the fact that its author owns the company. It should have become obvious to everyone how bad this was when the 2004 election ended, the comic lost its ability to reference politics, and it STILL couldn't tell a decent joke.
god of tweed 4/5
Brilliant humor using an ultra-liberal viewpoint to mock liberalism. Also funny at face value as a Liberal comic on neo-conservatives. And lovely art too. Very nice.
kidneo66 5/5
You guys are just being dicks. I love this comic, I wish I had half of the wit this artist had for my own webcomic. You people need lives. Asses
Donny 1/5
The problem with Sore Thumbs isn't that it mixes politics and games. The problem is that it isn't good at it. Like Hemingway, the writers of this comic seem to have very little faith in the intelligence of their readers or their ability to get the jokes. The politcal jokes have all the sublety of fishing with dynamite and are often in the form of "I am Christian that means I am conservative God hates homos" or something like that.

The gaming comics could be about anything at all really, as the mention of specific games or systems often have nothing to do with the jokes. The references are there simply so the authors can say they have a gaming strip.

Bleh. Go read something, anything other than this.

Oh, and to the guy that hinted that Checkerboard Nightmare was crap: A fart on you. Chex rules.
J.K. 1/5
The only time thsi comic was funny was when the author was trying to one-up the guy at Checkerboard Nightmare (and curiously enough, the inverse is also quite true). Go read something else and totally avoid this.
Mark Yeow 5/5
Fine, you motherfuckers draw a better comic then.
Gleezus 3/5
I just started reading this comic and while is it liberal as someone else has stated, it's not so over the top to me that I won't read it... So far the story line is progressing kinda slow but they are developing the characters more...
PlotlessViolence 2/5
Wow, another gaming comic! But wait! It's also ULTRA-LIBERAL!
There are, like, 3 comics in its entire half-year run that are mildly amusing, the rest is just overbearingly Michael Moore-esque preachy or just flat out not funny.
Jim T. 1/5
This is atrocious. It's not funny, it has a poor combination of genres that should never go together. The writing is poor, and it really shouldn't exist.

The drawings are pretty good, but seem to be rushed. You can tell the artist is talented, but he comes off sloppy and rushed.

Don't talk to me about the writer.
Srdjan 1/5
Attempt to make a gaming/political/manga/adventure comic. Needless to mention that this combination doesn't work. Plus, it would be a lot more convincing if main character wasn't huge-eyes sylicon-lips head-emply manga doll.
Julie 5/5
One of my favorite comics. Great art, and absolutely hilarious. The strip isn't really political, simply using characters with radical political affiliation as an excuse to be utterly silly.
