Ethnological Expedition

Ethnological Expedition

Fascinating

I like those "oblivious safari guy" UK.

I'm a simple Frenchy, if I saw the UK being ridicule or dumb, I'm happy

Perhaps you found yourself shocked, laughing uncomfortably because your expectations aligned with those of United Kingdom; having such a primitive view of sub-Saharan Africa.

or because it is a dumb joke

Not with that attitude it isn't.

Red Scare, but not quite, I'm aware

Red Scare, but not quite, I'm aware

Please, gringos.

How dare you criticize American hysteria!

/u/John_V98 confirmed to be a Russian Bot!

With a bit of McCarthyism modified for the modern ages, yes!

Is this the new "Thanks, Obama" meme?

The Great Railroad Robbery.

The Great Railroad Robbery.

That's a gorgeous horse head.

This was my entry for the Pierogi Western contest where I came out in 5th.

It's a joke on Chinesse product quality AND decaying American infrastructure. (and Chinesse steel dumping on the USA)

The title is a play on the 1903 Film The Great Train Robbery

It's Qing dynasty, you are allowed to use a flag.

If that doesn't get reused for a comic playing off a Godfather (the movie) scene it would be criminal.

Made my first polandball comic! These are harder - but also even more fun - than I thought. Constructive criticism is heavily appreciated.

As the good Belgian that I am, I decided to take the piss out of my own country (which I adore, for the record).

Context: Belgium certainly wouldn’t be real anymore if it ever does split. You know, dying and stuff. However, one reason Belgium wouldn’t split is the problematic Brussels-Capital Region, which both regions/communities cling on to, obviously.

Drought in Nordics 2018

Drought in Nordics 2018

Context: It's hot AF, Sweden is burning and Norway loves oil

Am Australian, currently in Finland about 100km north of the Arctic circle, the thermometer in my car reads 31 degrees.

I feel right at home.

It's currently 31 degrees in my office.

I'm melting

Well, Denmark did just send 22 firefighters to help.

Worthy of upvote

I love how "watered down" and absurd this is. I've always been a fan of comics that depict big conflicts as like, stick fights or cute banter and stuff instead of actual war since it seems more funny and detachable. This is a perfect example of that.

The US and Britain have an oddly heartwarming relationship. Especially considering US’s childhood.

US has post-colonial Stockholm syndrome

Why do you think I would have a problem with Britain claiming some barren rock in the Atlantic?

I think you're going to eat those words later on, Argentina.

As my first ever Polandball comic to be approved for this subreddit, I present you ladies and gentlemen the story of the United Kingdom's latest territorial acquisition.

Boasting no natural resources and being, essentially, a giant rock, the likely reason for the UK's having claimed Rockall was in order to claim the surrounding waters for fishing rights.

Beyond that, I can't say there's all that much I know about it!

At any rate, this is my first comic, so I'd really appreciate some criticisms and advice. It took me a lot of time to draw but I really enjoyed it and I'd love to learn to do things better. I've already prepared another comic that I'll look to upload later.

Edit: I received some feedback that my comics are too large (resolution-wise), I'll be sure to make them smaller in the future. Sorry for anyone inconvenienced; I'm going to try upload a resized version I'll stick in the comments.

The first of many British victories at sea.

Fish is valuable, I totally understand you UK.

secretly weaponize seagulls

Falling for you

Falling for you

well that was a falling relationship

Untrue. I know they love me.

Mods want to remove your comic.

This is horrible.

More, please.

Summer in Britain

Summer in Britain

Seriously though when is it going to rain my garden looks like a field of wheat. It's getting me feeling naughty.

winter in UK

worst snow for years, literally gets hit by a hurricane-force storm

summer in UK

drought for months, wildfires springing up

Hopefully you can understand why we've resorted to these drastic measures. Complaining about the weather to each other simply wasn't doing the job anymore.

Netherlands' Vacation Plans

Netherlands' Vacation Plans
In a discord server of a famous Dutch YouTube animator every two weeks there is a meme contest with a certain theme. Last weekend the theme was "vacation" since school's out here now. I decided to make a polandball comic as my entry, which made me win the contest. A photo of me holding the meme certificate.

The comic was originally in Dutch but as I've put so much effort in it (and the rules are applied) I decided to translate it to post it here too. It is possible that many would not understand the plot, as it could be a bit an inside joke.

Here a link to the song

That was the inside joke, it is a reference to the fact one of the video's of the YouYuber I mentioned got taken down by a record label as there was music used without permission (although I think in the case of parody it should be right but thats another topic). The song what was used was called "België" (lit. "Belgium") where the singer wants to go somewhere but every place he mentions is bad (Germany is too strict, Chili is too scary etcetera), except Belgium as 'everyone there laughs'. .

You should consider a disclaimer when you do a comic about some private joke. I'm probably not the only one who needs your enlightment over it.

Anyway, it's well drawn

What are those Belgian claims ?
