In a casually weird, super relatable, pop-culture-inflected observational style perfectly attuned to the adulting generation, Owlturd Comics is full of heart. Life is often personified as a buff dude that Shen combats on a day-to-day basis. So are student loans, winter, and many, many other things.
Shen’s art style is visually distinctive, popular with young people, and emotionally expressive. In addition, his frequent considerations of larger questions like randomness, fate, death, and the might of Cthulhu make him relatable for audiences far beyond young adults.
