I look at people who still use IRC like Chris Rock looks at women that don't give head.
'They still make you?'
It's like beta-max, really. Or for you kids too young to know what that is, it's like Brittany Spears' music - it never really was that good, but you accepted that it was all you had. The moment something better came along, you jumped.
Anyway, that's my view on IRC. My view on sIRC is a bit better, but again, compared to what? The art is serviceable, the site is easy to navigate, and the occasional bit can be funny - the guy fapping in the background for 4 or so straight strips was a nice touch - but this is, at its core, a comic written for a very select group of people about as common today as 568 modems. It's all one big series of in-jokes about things no one has even dealt with, let alone cared about since 1998. It would be akin to making a webcomic about dial-up bbs users.
If this review seems short, it's because there really isn't a lot to say about sIRC. Those who actually know what IRC is will find it funny, at times. Those who have no clue what IRC is will stare blankly. As niche comics go, it's okay, I guess. Just be a part of that niche.
