Stable vs. Concerned

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Stable and Concerned is that the Stable is a building for horses and other livestock and Concerned is a webcomic.

  • Stable

    A stable is a building in which livestock, especially horses, are kept. It most commonly means a building that is divided into separate stalls for individual animals. There are many different types of stables in use today; the American-style barn, for instance, is a large barn with a door at each end and individual stalls inside or free-standing stables with top and bottom-opening doors. The term “stable” is also used to describe a group of animals kept by one owner, regardless of housing or location.

    The exterior design of a stable can vary widely, based on climate, building materials, historical period and cultural styles of architecture. A wide range of building materials can be used, including masonry (bricks or stone), wood and steel. Stables can range in components, from a small building housing one or two animals to facilities at agricultural shows or race tracks that can house hundreds of animals.

  • Concerned

    Concerned: The Half-Life and Death of Gordon Frohman is a webcomic created by Christopher C. Livingston, parodying the first-person shooter video game Half-Life 2. The comic consists of game screenshots, with characters posed using Garry’s Mod, a tool which facilitates manipulation of the Source engine used by Half-Life 2. The first issue was launched on May 1, 2005. The comic completed its run on November 6, 2006 with a total of 205 issues.While Half-Life 2 follows protagonist Gordon Freeman in a dystopian future, Concerned follows a similar path through the eyes of “Gordon Frohman”, a dangerously clumsy character who arrives in the setting of the game a few weeks before Freeman does. The webcomic’s dark humor is derived from its contrasts with the game and through references to the game’s shortcomings. On several occasions in the comic, Frohman becomes the cause of various disastrous circumstances that Freeman will later encounter.

    Concerned has been well-received by critics and fans alike. Several reviews praised the attention to writing and presentation, as well as the comic’s humor. Livingston has also reported uniformly positive relations with personnel at Valve, the developer company of Half-Life 2, who were pleased to have a comic based on their game.
