Cartoonist Matt Furie’s deadpan comics showcase slacker roommates Andy, Brett, Landwolf, and Pepe in a series of comical vignettes combining laconic psychedelia, childlike enchantment, drug-fueled hedonism, and impish mischief. The perpetually insouciant glaze of his characters belie the sharp verbal and visual wit of Furie, who delivers a stoner classic for the Tumblr generation. In fact, Furie’s wildly popular teenage weirdoes became an overnight internet sensation when Pepe the Frog was widely adopted by users of 4chan and remixed ad infinitum from there (including uses by pop stars like Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry), giving Boy’s Club built-in recognition with many. A spiritual cousin to Simon Hanselmann’s Megahex and Joán Cornella’s Mox Nox, Boy’s Club’s sense of humor will especially resonate with fans of stoner comedies and black humor.

One would hesitate to label Boy’s Club as a milestone in the history of the medium, but if you like comics about getting high and eating pizza, these simply cannot be beat. Feels good, man. A.V. Club

An answer to the 'What if the Muppets vaped?' question that you were too afraid to ask, the series simultaneously satirized and celebrated the lifestyle of 20-something bros, capturing their lives full of junk food, catchphrases, and bodily fluids with horrifying and hilarious accuracy.  Vice

“Furie’s line is crisp and pleasant to look at in the abstract. The 1970s-style athletic shorts worn by several characters are rendered with love and care, as are the sections of hair on Landwolf’s face. He can draw the tongue of a self-confident but slightly toasted dude like no one’s business, and the body language of these skinny folks is right on.” — Paste Magazine

Boy’s Club is an occasionally surreal stoner comedy starring a quartet of vaguely college-aged monsters, Brett, Landwolf, Pepe, and Andy — four chill bros who love pizza, weed, video games, catchphrases, and bathroom humor. If that rough description has ever fit you at any point in your life, then brother/sister, is Boy’s Club the comic for you.  Comic Book Resources

It's a land of make-believe wherein pranks, fart jokes, acid trips, filthy group houses are the only reality that matters.”  High-Low
