Following the apocalypse, two factions remain: the hipsters, who live in New Brooklyn, the last known city, and the rednecks, who will do anything to get inside. When an outsider finds herself caught in the middle of an ongoing war, she must take a stand if she hopes to make it out of New Brooklyn alive.
Hipsters Vs. Rednecks. Let the title sink in just a little bit.
If the idea behind this one shot comic sounds even remotely interesting to you, then you should be thinking about reading this comic; it’s a fun look at what could be a disastrous future should these two factions remain in order to rebuild the human race.
Written by Wes Locher, with art by Tyler Kelting, this one shot comic is exactly what is sounds like. Evoking an almost Simpson’s-esque feel with a dose of Family Guy is a somewhat satirical look at the hipster culture, and the post apocalyptic setting of the story is fantastic at enabling the comic to poke a bit of fun at both hipsters and red necks. When you read this comic, you’ll that there’s only one voice of reason throughout; the outsider, Sloane. Through her Wes Locher shows us just how ridiculous a situation both sides find themselves in, much to the readers delight, she is very much the lone voice of reason within Hipsters Vs. Rednecks.
Also, as a nice touch, there’s also a suggested five song playlist to listen too while reading the comic; although my inner hipster refused to take the recommendation, it is a cool idea, and one that I haven’t seen anywhere else.
