I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Now Rodney "Largo" Caston has his very own web comic, Uberclocked. (I refuse to put a link to's that bad!)

For those who don't follow web comics, Rodney Caston, along with Fred "Piro" Gallagher, started Megatokyo four years and a few days ago. Somewhere down the line, they parted company, and now Fred Gallagher does both writing and artwork for the "manga/doujinshi" as it is described on the site.

Anyway, it really does look like Uberclocked is Caston's attempt to cash in on his notoriety as the former co-writer of the web comic and as a still-occuring character in it. The problem, though, is that it's simply not funny or involving or anything else. Unlike Megatokyo, which is funny, involving and as addictive as Pocky. Also whomever is drawing Uberclocked is definitely not in Gallagher's artistic league, because it's just...bleh. I think his name is Lawn.

There is no style nor soul in Uberclocked. And I just don't care about any of the characters.
