Webcomics Weekly: Bounce

In a new feature here a Graphic Policy, we’ll take a look at one of the many webcomics out there that the staff enjoy each week (but don’t be fooled by the “weekly” part of the title; it may happen more or less than that). We’re defining webcomics as any comics published online for free consumption by the general public that doesn’t require a  subscription service.

This week we’re taking a look at a webcomic that our EIC Brett reads regularly Bounce. The strip is created by Chuck Collins, who was kind enough to answer a few questions for us about the webcomic below.

Graphic Policy: In a nutshell, can you tell us what the strip’s about?

Chuck Collins: The strip is about two childhood friends that grew up in East Flatbush Brooklyn. Now in their adult life they’re both working in the nightlife industry as bouncers. They deal with all kinds of drunks and douchebags and use their wit and logic to keep them in check.

GP: How often do you update?

CC: I update 3 times a week. Monday, Wednesday (which I call One Shot of Whiskey Wednesday’s), and Fridays.

GP: How long have you been producing the strip?

CC: A little under 2 years.

GP: Where did the idea for the strip come from?

CC: I’ve worked as a bouncer for 10+ years in New York. Every night was a new adventure and I wasn’t always a willing participant. People get drunk, they say and do crazy things. I’m on the forefront dealing with the madness. A lot of situations were just insanely hilarious. Stories you can’t make up. I’ve always wanted to document these experiences but didn’t know how I wanted to it. Then one night it hit me like a thunderbolt. Decided to make it into a crazy webcomic.

Why it’s awesome: Torn from Chuck’s life, his comic runs from observations about every day life in his job to over the top battles that evoke anime. It’s a comic where you might laugh one day, think the next, and enjoy the action the day after that. Hell it might be all of that in one day!

Below you’ll find two strips that were originally posted to the site, the first is from October 26th 2015.
