It’s over tomorrow. I love the Widdershins webcomic and I would not mind in the slightest being in a position someday where I could be able to help adapt it for a RPG sourcebook. In the meantime, this is a cool project and Kate Ashwin gets these things out on time.
I enjoy this webcomic a good deal and they’re having a little trouble hitting their funding numbers. If you like World War II superhero stuff, by all means: check it out. It’d be a shame if it doesn’t get published…
This is very interesting: Stand Still, Stay Silent looks like it’s a post-post-apocalypse (plague?) setting, with a relatively uncommon setting (modern Nordic*) and a definite promise of Funky Weird Stuff. It’s still within binge-reading territory, but apparently the comic updates every weekday, so start reading it fast. So far I like it; I wonder if I’d like it more in book form, though.
Have bookmarked it, if that’s a consideration for anybody.
*I’d normally say ‘Scandinavian,’ but I had people point out to me recently that Finland (and maybe Iceland) aren’t quite part of that group.
It’s an interesting comic; the first story was … not actually steampunk. More like “early Victorian era with real magic;” still fun. Entertaining characters and it didn’t let itself be too straight-jacketed by the relevant literary conventions. Check it out.
Avoiding Champions Online is hard enough: being told that you can make your own steampunk metal man as a character just makes it excruciating.
PS: Because I enjoy being married and having a family, that’s why.
PPS: Skin Horse is a fun webcomic. And it’s a Velveteen Rabbit reference, so get your mind out of the gutter.
That’s the title of this post by Dresden Codak webcomic author Aaron Diaz, and it’s… very readable, actually. I’m not a graphic artist, but Diaz’s analysis of costume design, its goals, and its pitfalls was easy to follow along, and made a good deal of sense to even a non-initiate. Quite worth looking at.
Now, if only he could manage to draw a darn comic more than once a month…
Brilliance, I say. And it is called…
Why more people don’t do this is beyond me.
