Don't let my ratings fool you, this site has excellent content.

The Good:
* Free-form style comics. The artist takes the space required, and blends the panels nicely together.
* A unique perspective. He has a clear sense of wonder about the world, and has the tallent to portray this excitement in a humorous way.
* Content that matters. Many of the comics are swing from their humor to a potent relational truth.

The Bad:
* It is surprisingly non-intuitive to traverse. It isn't clear why it strays so far from the tried and true formulas.
* The art style is quite unappealing. It only works for the content that is intended to be weird/gross.
* Ad placement is excessive and distracting

The Oatmeal gets my "like", but it could be so much more.
