I love nature landscapes and settings that give a sense of freedom, and this comic has both in droves. What really drew me in, however, was how mysterious the camp is. What is it? Why and how does it exist? What's its purpose? It feels almost otherwordly, like some lost paradise, and the mystery just keeps building the longer the comic goes on. I love that kind of stuff.

I've heard that a lot of people were disappointed by the ending and feel it renders the comic incomplete, but I couldn't disagree more. Linus's letter to Malachi reflecting on his time spent at camp offers a hint at what its purpose might be without making anything concrete, which, in my opinion, perfectly preserves the mystery surrounding the place while also providing a sense of closure.

Camp Weedonwantcha is a must-read. However, if you do, be warned - there are some nasty gross-out moments not dissimilar to some of Spongebob’s worst scenes. One that comes to mind in particular is a panel where a girl uses a tick as an earring. Vomit-inducing.
