 Well, after thinking about it some more, I guess these would be pretty funny if you're  eight years old, which is the target audience for this comic. Anyway...they're so awkwardly bizarre that they're intrisically groovy.

I quite like these!

I think the cube has been vastly under-used in cartoons character design.

Hi David & Jordan...I'm really glad to know you like these comics. Looks like Squarehead has his own fan base ^_^

I have just put together another batch of Squarehead comics, and they'll probably be posted by the time you read this. Thanks for the feedback!

Haha. The Squarehead comics all have exactly the same gag.

They remind me of David Gale's Mustard Jar comics. And of course, Spongebob Squarepants owes a lot to the Squarehead design.
