1091. Merlin and Benjamin Button

Share this comic!

This would work a lot better with the short story Benjamin Button than the movie Benjamin Button, because in the short story Benjamin seems to be all about doing whatever is age appropriate for the most part.  He goes to college when he is college aged and then when he is high school aged he decides to go to high school.

Besides the awesome premise, it’s actually a pretty lame short story.  It doesn’t delve nearly deep enough into the mind of someone aging backwards.  Seriously.  He went to high school!  Voluntarily.  After college.  Fitzgerald didn’t think this one through.  The story is actually kind of a boring read.

I actually only read it to make this comic.  I also watched the movie just to make this comic.  RESEARCH.
