I really hate this crude style of art, and never understood why anyone found it funny.
But I do have a lot of sympathy for the creator. It must sting to see their creation co-opted by Nazis, and I guess getting rid of them is the only moral choice if such bad people are perverting their work.

Yeah, he left a pretty heartfelt message when they published the last strip.

The characters in ‘Boy’s Club’ will always be a part of me. Andy the wise guy, Landwolf the party animal, Brett the fashionable dancer, and Pepe the chill frog — they are all tweaked reflections of my own values and sensibilities. Their personalities unfolded and blossomed as time went on, but just like the person in your life that you love the most, one day they will die. And death can be as beautiful as life, because it’s what makes life important.

I too always hated both the art style and the sense of humor. Never made any sense at all to me.

Nevertheless... Imagine being an artist and pouring your heart into creating a character that is a reflection of your own values and sensibilities, and then a bunch of strangers turns it into a nazi and use it as a tool to suicide-bait vulnerable minorities.
