Ying and Yan by TonyAlpsen
Ying and Yan are twin brothers who are joined at the hip…and the shoulder, and everything in between.
It's a simple, perfect premise for standalone jokes playing off the brothers' conjoined status, or the difference in their personalities, or snarky commentary on life in general.
The tone is somewhat dark but accessible humor, and reminds me of Willie Weirdie, the old series by Al Jaffee.
Ying is more open, curious, and straight-laced, while Yan is the snarky, mischievous one. That works out quite handily - if Yan's wry one-liners and punchlines came from the twin on our left, it would make the word balloons awkward! Tony Alpsen lucked out, there!
The art is digital, in full color, with simple character designs and facial expressions that are a lot of fun, especially the different reactions the brothers have to practically every situation.
The comic is a single-panel gag format. I flew through the archive very quickly and smiled and chuckled the whole way.
It's a premise I wish I'd thought of!
Ying and Yan by Tony Alpsen is rated T for Twins!
