This webcomic was originally conceived by Aaron Crowe as an animated series about a town of cute, furry critters who hate their lives after a money grubbing corporation gets them all addicted to g’oo.
It found life on the web when Aaron asked Dave Hutchison to draw it as a cartoon. Uncertain he’d have the time required to go the distance with such a massive project, Dave decided to try illustrating it with photo-collages, creating Villeville from parts of California, New York, Massachusetts and especially his hometown in Delaware.
They may jokingly refer to it as a transcendentalist satire, but in tone it actually takes on the burnt out quality that sets in after satire fails to win the day.
This expansive series has been called smart, funny, thoughtful, bizarre and original.
