Свитер Argyle

Not long ago, I came across a web site that had a collection of my comics on it. I’ve seen websites do this before, so nothing unusual there. What’s really intriguing to me is that the site is in (I think) Russian. Yep – someone has taken the time to go through a good portion of my comics and translate them into Russian. And the really fascinating part, to me, is that they didn’t just translate the word balloons or the commentary – they translated everything. Words in the background such as building signs, chalkboard writing, etc – it was all translated and photoshopped over the original. Anyhow, I don’t speak any other languages other than my own – so it’s incredibly interesting, to me, to see my work in another tongue. I do wonder how the humor translates though and if part of the joke ever gets lost in the interpretation. Either way, it appears that they’ve done a pretty good job – at least I’m impressed.

It doesn’t look like it’s been updated in a few weeks but you can check it out here:

Btw, the title says Argyle Sweater in Russian – at least it does according to Babel Fish.
