“I love Blobby Boys and am its biggest cheerleader, I think. I endorse this comic with all the weight of my soul. Buy it, buy it, buy it.” – Nick Gazin, VICE

Blobby Boys
is a hilarious and slime-filled comic about pot smoking blobby bandmates who are equal parts Ninja Turtles and punks. Their exploits dealing, robbing, and jamming are rounded out by the misadventures of Aging Hipster and Punk Dad.

“Alex Schubert’s collection of bold, bizarre comics is short, sharp and shocking — not unlike a quick stabbing.” – Jake Austen,
Chicago Tribune

Blobby Boys by Alex Schubert is what might happen if Daniel Clowes got injected with the spirit of Johnny Ryan.” – Rob McMonigal, Panel Patter

“Schubert’s writing is good, too, if rarely seeming like more than freestyling in these loosely related short strips that feature characters like the Blobby Boys (a band who kill their rivals), Aging Hipster (self-explanatory), and Cyber Surfer (a cyborg). But the bold art is what really sets him apart from his fellows.” – Hillary Brown, 
Paste

“There’s an almost Axe Cop-like, written-by-a-child feel to the story, only with some adult cynicism mixed in. Schubert’s bold, machine-precise image-making, in which every character and object looks like something that could be a logo for something, is hard to describe, but easy to appreciate.”

High-Low

•Comics blog

“[Schubert’s] peculiar drawing style transcends his influences as they mesh together computer drawings, graffiti, video games, album cover art and other cultural touchstones outside of but related to comics. I could read another 200 pages of gags set in this particular visual world.”

The Comics Journal

•American comics magazine

“Everything about this comic is appealingly minimal — the sparse panels, block coloring, limited narration and dialogue — and it all works together well. Schubert’s economy makes the gags about surfing robots and cunning art critics that much better because he never forces the words and art to do more than they need to: the deadpan laffs come naturally.”
