Chex is trying to make it big, but all he knows is marketing jargon and how to lie. It's usually up to his lawyer Lyle to bail him out when things go wrong, or his personal robot Vaporware to choke the daylights out of his detractors (or humans in general). It starts out its four-year-and-counting run with surreal, self-aware humor, but now has a much broader flavor and appeal to it.

very interesting!!!
SotiCoto 2/5
I suppose it does one thing original... which it, itself, already covered. By now I'm quite sick of it. This is doing nothing to satiate my boredom.
Mightyhog 5/5
Every character is just someone you have to love, and you really get a sense of who they are!

Either that or they're just copying another style, have a male writer, broke the fourth wall, switched camera angles, or they block over-determined punch lines...

The point is: It's a satirical ride into the world of comics, from a somewhat 'aspiring' star's point of view, his trusty lawyer, his cliche (yet unwillingly so) robot, and the token main female character. Read this if you've read PVP, Penny Arcade, or any other webcomic, and you're bound to get it.

Either that or leave a message saying you'll get it some time this week, lowering your fan base population.

One of the most consistently funny webcomics EVER. The characters and situations are surreal, but there's something truthful about the characters and motivations. Don't waste your time with another gaming comic, read Chex!

I have become a huge, huge fan. The only possible drawback I see is that one must read other webcomics first, so one can get ALL the jokes. However, if you're relatively intelligent, you can get most anyway.
Donny 5/5
One of the most brilliant strips out there right now.
J.K. 1/5
About the only thing funny in this comic is the author's rants. Skip it.
Katie UK 4/5
Found Checkerboard Nightmare thru a link on Something Positive a few months ago ... excellent! I like that it doesn't fall into the obvious rhythms of most web comics.
Josh Entner 5/5
Checkerboard Nightmare is one of those comic strips that manage to do great by not using the typical means. It's not based around gaming, it doesn't go out of its way to make female TnA characters. It thrives from its writing which is most of the time laugh out loud funny

Patrick H. 5/5
VERY underrated comic strip. If you read any web comics at all, add CN to your reading list.
Bob 5/5
