"PartiallyClips" is a
webcomic, created by Rob Balder, which has been running since 2002. "PartiallyClips" is unusual in that it has no original art and no recurring characters or plots. Each three-panel strip consists of a single clip artimage, repeated and unchanged in each panel, with added speech balloons and/or captions, which create the joke. "PartiallyClips" is updated twice weekly, on Sundays and Thursdays.
"PartiallyClips" tends to use
dark humor; frequently, the picture used is rather idyllic, which is common in public-domain clip art, but the added dialogue or captions twist the scene. "PartiallyClips" also frequently comments on modern life and culture, especially aspects of Internet culture.
In addition to its online audience, the strip is also self-syndicated to print, targeted at
alternative weeklynewspapers. It typically runs in 10-15 publications each week, such as Houston Pressand Metroland. It has appeared in roughly 25 newspapers and magazines, and has produced a book, "Suffering For My Clip Art: The Best Of Partially Clips Volume 1".
Its name is a pun: phonetically, "Partially Clips" is nearly the same as "Partial
Material from "PartiallyClips" was included in "".
In December 2006, Balder started a second webcomic, "
Erfworld", with artist Jamie Noguchi.
