"Sore Thumbs is a manga-style webcomic drawn by Owen Gieni and written by Chris Crosby, which started on March 8, 2004. It is more or less an allegory of the current political landscape in America. Sore Thumbs mainly centres on the trials of Fairbanks Greensworthington and his sister Cecania. The focus of the comic is the Sore Thumbs Video games store, which Fairbanks owns; Cecania, Harmony and Sawyer are employees there. The strip frequently makes use of bizarre and incongruous similes and metaphors... A focal comic point is Fairbanks's strained relations with the oddballs, lunatics, game fanatics, and even normal people who come into the store. An anomaly of the strip is that the characters are supposedly being portrayed by actors in the strip, and there are a few strips that have the 'actors' addressing the audience out of character.

The series rarely addresses issues in gaming (at least, compared to other self-proclaimed gaming comics... instead often focusing on extremely exaggerated political issues (with a notable liberal bias)."
