At the very top of Comics Sherpa’s list of comics is our first webcomic review. I was torn between lumping all of my favorite Sherpa Toons together in one post (which I will likely do when it comes to GoComics) but decided against it. These are the struggling artist just like myself who are just wanting someone to notice their strip. So I decided that each Sherpa comic should have it’s own post and review. Starting with our first review:

0-60 by Ariel Guzman

0-60This comic is the story of a new compact car called M1T3Y that has a mind of it’s own. As you can see above it has a nice soft gray-scale for it’s art. It also does something clever when the cars are thinking or communicating with one another. Instead of the traditional thought balloon, 0-60 has words appear on the windshield.

Not many humans seem to notice that the cars are sentient in this strip including the cars owner Lillie (a girl who is not afraid to change her own oil) and Sterling a dude who was reluctant to accept the little car at first but has grown to like it. Every once in a while though some one will notice that the car has a mind of it’s own.

0-60So, that’s what I like about 0-60 (as I warned in the last post I am not the best review giver). It has nice art in a newspaper style strip, some good car humor and some great characters. So I encourage you to go check out this nice little comic and read through it’s archives. The comic has a start date of July 19th 2010 and continues to update every Monday and Thursday on Comics Sherpa part of Go Comics.


Next Week: 1977 The Comic


Up for sale is a 1991 Dodge Shadow ES with low mileage for a car this age. This used to be a weekend car for me until my wife was no longer able to carpool so I am wanting to sell this so I can purchase a pickup that is more suited to my needs for work. Otherwise I would not want to part with this. Until I started driving it everyday, I was contemplating getting it registered as a classic.

The original cost of this car was $16,784.00
It is rated at 23mpg city and 28mpg highway.

The top is new and was installed only two years ago and is always booted when put down. The rear window was replaced as well. The top color used to be white, but I got it replaced with a gray top to match the interior.

It is up to date on service. I just changed the oil and the inspection is up to date and is good till March 2011.

I am only the second owner of the car.

It runs great and is comfortable to drive.

Passenger side window motor is new.

Only 45000 miles on it. Might be a little bit more because I drive it everyday still.

Not to mention it is a convertible and fun to drive in nice weather with the top down!

Driver side window has failed on me despite being fixed in March. It is currently stuck in the down position.

Was backed into in a mall parking lot. The grill and hood are damaged and need to be replaced for the car to look nice cosmetically.

The paint is pealing in a few spots, mostly the hood. This is common for Chrysler vehicles painted white.

Front speakers no longer work

The A.C. Needs to be recharged.

The roof leaks. This is a design flaw with this car. The original owner has told me that it has leaked since 1991 when he bought it.

I hope I have described this accurately enough for you. Please contact me if your interested in taking it for a spin. Please take a look at the photos or come see it for yourself.  ohnocomix (at) gmail (dot) com.
