I…have no idea who that is. I just looked him up and yep, still have no idea who that is.

now we know how the comic critics brain storm. would love to see marrissa cross paths with dave sims. and surprise josh did not pick some one like grant morrision or bendis

Obscure reference but still awesome.

With all due respect, if you were just gonna go with “tall”, I’d have picked Jim Shooter. Kevin Grevioux’s mainly known for his Hollywood work, and I had to look him up too. Jim Shooter, on the other hand, is a famous industry figure and a seven-foot beast.

Are there any ongoing strips on the internet that actually critique comics?

Can we change the name of this one to Comics Wankers?

Nigel, “critic” is a person who critique. The title of the strip is not Comic Criticisms.

I didn’t know who Kevin Grevioux was either, so I mentally changed the name to R. Crumb to make up my own punchline.

But if it was R. Crumb he would ride on your back.

The point of the joke is that Josh is rambling incoherently. You’re not supposed to know who Kevin Grievoux is. If Josh had said he wanted to meet Jim Shooter, it doesn’t work, since it makes sense to want to meet Shooter or Crumb and even a sober person might joke about playing piggyback with Jim Shooter. /HatedJokeExplainer

Kevin Grievoux… the big black mountain of a werewolf in the first Underworld movie… hence the punchline….

Having met him in person, he is probably the tallest person I have talked to who wasn’t a basketball player or professional wrestler…. and if there is a fight, my money is on Kevin…

I know it isn’t, but I want his last name to be pronounced “Grievous.”

Trivia about Kevin Grevioux “Graduated from Howard University in Washington, D.C. with a degree in microbiology and minors in both chemistry and psychology. He also studied genetic engineering in grad school.”

According to IMDb he’s 6’2” (188 cm) which makes him slightly shorter than me. But I am more stringbeanish so he’s probably more suited to carry Josh.

…I’d actually like to get a piggyback ride from Kevin Grevioux.

He’s only 6’2″? I’m that height. I also submit that Jim Shooter would have been a funnier name than this one

Two years since the last post?!? Time flies. I miss you Josh & Marissa!
