â€œ1977â€³ is the story of Bud, Jeff, Lorraine and Robyn, four friends trying to become rock â€˜nâ€™ roll stars in the late 70s, but somehow always missing their target. Together they find the road to fame and fortune littered with itâ€™s fair share of obstacles. From sexist bar owners, to dealing with their own families, the 1977 gang faces every day challenges in their never-ending quest to a Gold record!
This is a webcomic that caught me by surprise.
Made by W.Bryon Wilkins (who grew up in the 70’s) this is an excellent venture as a webcomic, which takes us out of our comfort zone and places us into somewhere kinda familiar.
I never grew up in the 70’s (hell, I haven’t grown up at all!), but I get the feel of the 70’s from this comic without it feeling soppy.
The gags are there and timeless – add in the age of the characters and the world around them and you get a brilliant strip.
