About

Shen Comix, previously known as Owl Turd Comix, is a webcomic created by Shenanigansen known for its whimsical art style and downbeat punchlines.



Origin

Shenanigansen started Owl Turd Comix in February of 2013. His first comic[1] was posted to Tumblr on February 19th (shown below).


THAAAT'S ME! ANYTHING IN O PARTICULAR YOU WANT ON YOUR MELETTE, SKELLY? 1 SHALL FEAST UPON THE SOULS AND DROWN THEIR BLOOD OF THE CRIES IN THE INNOCENT! TSK. SSTHKELE TOOOOR OWLTURD.cOM

Spread

In the coming years, Owl Turd Comix grew in popularity, with his comics regularly receiving tens of thousands of notes on Tumblr.[2] He has illustrated for The Daily Dot,[3] College Humor,[4] and Naver Webtoon.[5] Many of his comics feature a character named "Shen" serving as the protagonist, which Shenanigansen says is "close enough" to his real personality.[6]

While Owl Turd is popular, it does have its critics, who often criticize it for resorting to formulaic punchlines about the author's neuroses. On December 13th, 2016, Tumblr user comic-sans-apologist[7] published a comic mocking Owl Turd by doing an overly simplistic parody of one of his comics. The post has gained nearly 11,000 notes in over a month.

Hiatus

On November 18th, 2017, Shenanigansen published a status update on Facebook[8] announcing that his comic would be placed on "hiatus" while working on "getting to a place of emotional stability" (shown below).


Shen Comix 5 hrs I'm putting my comics on hiatus to work on getting to a place of emotional stability. Thank you for reading my stuff. I'm sorry for bad opinions and priorities that I hold- I'll reconsider those too. I'l be back when I'm back. See ya

The next day, a follow-up post was released revealing that he was dealing with "personal, non-comics-related stuff" and that he liked ''the bike memes,'' referring to the exploitables using his My Bike Got Stolen Recently comic (shown below).[9] Within 24 hours, the post gathered more than 10,000 reactions, 520 comments and 280 shares.


Shen Comix 4 mins- To clarify, there is some personal, non-comics-related stuff going on in my life right now that's making it hard to focus on comics. So I'm taking a temporary hiatus to focus on it, and fix it, so that I can then get back to being 100% focused on making comics I like the bike memes. Please don't treat me with kid gloves. It's okay to meme. Meming is not harassment, and my reaction to it is part of what made me realize I need to work on myself & my attitude. So I'm also taking the hiatus to do exactly that. My initial hiatus announcement came off as dismissive and playing the victim my bad, seriously. The only person I'm a victim of is myself. I'm not sure how I got so entitled. I appreciate y'all, and having so many people follow my work is an absolute blessing TLDR: I'm taking a hiatus to fix some personal stuff, and will hopefully not be coming out with stupid hot takes every month after I sort myself out. I'll see y'all on the other side of it, and hope that your life is lovely in the meantime

All Life Is Precious

All Life Is Precious is an exploitable Owl Turd Comix panel in which a person is holding a spider. Electing to bring it outside rather than kill it, the person says, “All life is precious.” The spider then says something offensive to the person, leading the person to squish it. In the exploitable, what the spider says changes.

My Bike Got Stolen Recently

My Bike Got Stolen Recently, also known as Bike Cuck, is an exploitable Owl Turd webcomic in which a boy is initially sad to discover his bike is stolen but feels better after speculating that the thief who stole it is happy to have it. Online, the comic was mocked for having a simplistic outlook on theft and universal happiness, spawning numerous parody variations.


MY BIKE GOT STOLEN RECENTLY. (fh I WAS PRETTY BUMMED OUT ABOUT IT. BUT I THINK WHOEVER STOLE IT WAS PROBABLY MORE HAPPY TO GET IT THAN I AM SAD TO SO, WHATEVER. LOSE IT. THE TOTAL HAPPINESS IN THE WORLD INCREASED. SHEN

yknow, i feel bad for him. he's super depressed now on twitter from what a meme he became and how he did things because they were popular. He knows he's viewed as something to mock now and it's kinda hurting him.

I think we're starting to realize the problems with making someone a meme online. some people can take it, but a dude who's constantly making comics about depression is not gonna handle it well. worst part is, some people still see the effects of rejection by everyone online and still paste that stupid tweet about cyberbullying like it's gospel. As if words don't effect people as if we're all sociopaths.
