    Thanks for sticking my comic in such esteemed company, Stranger Dan. But I had Joey Manley pull the comic from Graphic Smash a while back with the intent of retooling the concept a bit and re-running it on my own site. (Before I discovered that the comic only exists in un-colored/ un-corrected/ far-from-web-ready .psd format, and that's a lot of work I'm not up for right now.)

    There's only a 404 waiting on the other end of that link.

    Anders Loves Maria


    I seem to be the only person on the planet who found Anders and Maria to both be annoying kidults. The supporting cast were far more likable.

    Perhaps I'm a bit biased on this one, but I don't think so.... : )

    Jane Irwin's CLOCKWORK GAME is activated again, and is now into all new page posts. This amazingly well researched and loving story of the "life" of the Turk, the chess playing automaton, is told from the views of its various owners. More than clockwork geekery, Jane's story delves into the relationship and lives of the people who created the legend of this machine, and had to live with its fame and infamy. Her story is full of details on the circumstances of the automaton's life, but also telling how its mere presence impacted all manner of scientist, thinker and common person.

    For those of you who know Jane's work through her VOGELEIN books, you'll be very surprised to see the quantum leap up on the art and writing on this one. Amazing line work and cross-hatching will bowl you over. And Jane's attention to details is where this story really excels, on the art AND contextual storytelling levels. Certainly deserving of a wide and appreciative comic audience who likes their comics thick with talent and story.

    I recommend Ratfist by Doug TenNapel.

    If it's okay I'd like to plug my own sci-fi graphic novel, Power Nap. It's a collaboration effort between amazing graphic artist Bachan and me behind the typewriter.

    In a not-so-distant future, no one sleeps anymore, ever, thanks to some wonderful little pills. So what happens when you're allergic to said pills?

    It started last month, and updates three times a week.

    Erm, don't forget that Warren has recommended Whitechapelers check out Lady Sabre and the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether from Greg Rucka and Rick Burchett.

    I will recommend Lady Sabre as well, though I don't carry the same clout.

    I do one called Post Apocalyptic Nick. It's about a hipster after the apocalypse.

    My favorites other than FreakAngels is the post-apocalyptic Charlie Brown epic "WEAPON BROWN", and the Greek version of Ghost in the Shell "OLD CITY BLUES".
    Another one to mention is "TURBO DEFIANT KIMECAN"
    And for a bit of Jodorowsky vibe, although this one is kind of a comedy and not strictly serious, you can check out "FORMING"
    You can also read all of James Stokoe's "MURDERBULLETS" online, just follow the MurderBullets link

    Now for the shameless plug, I've been putting together a webcomic experiment, it is actually more of a storybook than webcomic, or web storybook. I'm using the children's book illustrated format for the work, so you could say it is a children's book for adults. It is set in the future, it is somewhat of a sci-fi but definitely more inspired by all the trashy films I've seen over the years. If interested please check it out, the story is "CALL OF THE SCREAMING WICKED" and available at www.pulptrash.com.
