James Breakwell (previously here and here) is a father of four girls, so it probably goes without saying that his life is pretty chaotic. Yet somehow, James finds the time to create comics about the everyday life of a modern family. Granted, he cuts some corners when it comes to form, but it's the content that counts.

Titled Unbelievably Bad Webcomic, this series isn't the only thing James has been working on. He has also published two books, with several more planned for release in the coming years. Only Dead on the Inside: A Parent’s Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse offered useful advice for how to raise happy, healthy children in a world overrun by the undead. Bare Minimum Parenting: The Ultimate Guide to Not Quite Ruining Your Child taught regular moms and dads to become overachieving parents by doing less.

He also reaches thousands of daily readers through his other webcomics, Unfridgeworthy, and Wombat Dojo.

"I’m a professional comedy writer and amateur father of four girls, ages nine and under," James told Bored Panda. "As far as artistic background, I have none whatsoever. The look of my comics is inspired by the stick figures on the doors to public restrooms. I can’t draw at all, but I try to be consistently bad in the same ways every day. That way it looks like a deliberate stylistic choice rather than just me being awful."

Some questions should not be asked, if you can't handle the true answer.

"The comics follow the adventures of a dad, mom, four daughters, and two pet pigs as they navigate the challenges of everyday life. They’re like my tweets, but in panel form."

"My kids are the starting point for almost all of my jokes," he said. "Even if they don’t literally ride wolves or launch each other from catapults. At least I hope they don’t. I haven’t checked on them in a while. Everybody’s kids are weird, and my comics celebrate that. Anyone who says they have normal children is lying."

James started creating comics because he wanted to tell jokes he couldn’t on Twitter. "Comics let me be a little more out there," he explained. "I can draw my kids with flamethrowers without anyone reporting me to CPS."

"Plus, in the comics my kids never get older. With my Twitter jokes, I have to keep updating their ages, and eventually they’ll be adults. But in my comics, they’ll be young forever. That way I can keep telling kid jokes. My children are going to put me in a terrible nursing home."

They will definitely find out. Just you wait. No kid should make it through his childhood without seeing Star Wars.

I always hate the reply to that simple question...."What is there?" Do I really have to list everything in the fridge, freezer and cupboards, as well as everything I could make from them?

Can relate to this! All it takes is a brief temporary absence from me to reduce the communal areas of the house to war zones!

I understand why Peter Pan never wanted to grow up, too much responsibility. Sometimes I would rather fight pirates than live in reality lol.
