If you twisted my arm and made me choose just one, I might tell you that Kyle Baker is my favorite cartoonist. Since his first professional work was published nearly 30 years ago, Baker has been one of the greatest talents in comics. The Cowboy Wally Show and Why I Hate Saturn remain two of my favorite books, with the latter being a book I frequently loan to people who think they couldn't ever enjoy a comic. I like Kyle Baker, is what I'm saying.

So whenever Baker does anything new, I take note. And now the multiple Eisner and Harvey Award-winning creator has launched a new comic strip, simply titled Meh.There are only two installments so far, but if you're a fan of Baker's, it's about as great as you would expect.

The duo who star in the first two strips are reminiscent of the protagonists from Why I Hate Saturn: clever underachievers critical of society, who get mad at all the right and all the wrong things. I have no idea how long Baker plans on keeping this strip running, or even if he'll introduce more than two characters, but the dynamic between the characters he's already set up is one he's excelled at writing in the past, so even if it's just these two, we're in for a good time. The first installment is above, and here's the second:
