And how very exciting that news is, I’m sure. Don’t mind me: I had a ridiculously late night last night. Sufficiently so that I’m half-debating not staying up until midnight, when Mass Effect: Andromeda presumably drops. Yes, I’m that tired.
You can safely assume that, of the ones listed here from last year, Freefall, Daughter of the Lilies (hoo, yeah), and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal are up on the list. Maybe Questionable Content, as it’s behaved itself since the Incident. Still haven’t decided. Oh, and Sword Interval and Miss Melee. Sing out if there are others.
[I got really annoyed with what happened to a particular webcomic artist this week, but I can’t figure out how to write about it without breaking my own rules. This is as close as I can respectably get, I think. So, hey, how about the new Independence Day flick, huh?]
If you are not reading Freefall, you should be. Ignore the fact that it has an uplifted wolf as a main character: it is a ridiculously sophisticated hard-SF webcomic that is in the middle of tackling the exceptionally ethically tricky question of sapient rights (both biological and mechanical). In a just world, it’d be syndicated and run in every daily paper.
PS: Yes, at some point I will update the Webcomics Page.
Specifically, the Coolest Thing that is at the intersection of Kolchak – The Night Stalker; The X-Files; and Shaenon Garrity’s incredibly fun Monster of the Week webcomic (last link explains the tag line).
I am not saying that you have to be as enthusiastic as I am about Scully dressed as Kolchak; but if you plan to read this site very often then you probably should accept the fact that, yes, this is what I am all about. (more…)
I actually essentially agree with this. For example, today I learned a couple of things about the nature of Teflon that should hopefully make it easier for me to maintain my pots for longer without destroying them. Every little bit helps when it comes to staving off the heat death of the universe.
…OK. Fine. Yes, I’d go see that.
And I’m not g0ing to feel guilty about that, either. I’m a philistine, and proud of it; and while I have absolutely nothing against people who go to the movies because they want to see something that will make them think, I am not one of those people. I think quite enough all day as it is, thanks; when I go into a film typically I want to turn off my brain for a bit.
So low-brow me there, dude.
I was starting to wonder. And wonder what she was doing back in Bad Machinery.
What? Sorry. Webcomic stuff.
Punchline to today’s Girl Genius. Man, I love these guys…
…but I’m starting to wonder when the webcomic is going to actually reach some sort of climax. I think that we’re somewhere in Act III, or maybe the beginning of Act IV; and the Foglios are very, very good at this sort of thing. Still, if they were thinking about dragging it out I would argue that they shouldn’t, largely because I’d rather see the comic get wrapped up rather than lose any quality.
Yeah, I know, I know: who asked me?
