The Doctor is in-Freakin'-credible!

Today, I'd like to talk about one of my favorite new webcomics, Awesome Hospital. What is Awesome Hospital? I'm glad you asked that.

In the creators' own words- "Death Rays. Mind Control. Teenage Werewolves. When you’ve got a problem so rad that conventional science can’t help, you need to consult the specialists of Awesome Hospital."

Basically, AH is a slam-bang combo of radicalness. It's like someone took St. Elsewhere and The Venture Bros. and put them in a blender.


I'd be remiss if I didn't mention one of the strongest influences for AH. The creators have noted none other than Jack "The King" Kirby as an inspiration, and it shows. From the concept, to the art style, to the character design, reverence for The King is apparent in every update.



The characters are awesome. Chief M.D. Kris Kringle heads up a wild staff of doctors and nurses, including Dr. Caveman, Dr. Bulldog-on-a-Skateboard, Nurse Punk Rock, and more. It's great. The current story features AH being bought out by their medical rivals, Weakler Associates (Weak-Ass Hospital), so the awesome staff has to deal with the likes of Dr. Prop Comic, Nurse Fan-Fiction, and Dr. Casual Racism.



Basically, if you like fun, check out Awesome Hospital. If you don't like fun, then the terrorists win. Awesome Hospital updates Tuesdays and Thursdays.
