Tom the dancing bug returns with this. It’s achingly unfunny (and yet hilarious) and horrific, and does a great job expressing the unapproachable magnitude of loss that needs to be expressed in NYC, I feel. That sense that no matter what, the line ‘terrorists detroyed the world trade center killing thousands’ will pop up in conversation sooner or later. It’s good to see this starting to be addressed in daily strips. The only one I’d seen previously was User Friendly.
Last night, at Day & Nicole’s birthday party, I think it took about an hour to come up. Which is pretty good. Actually, it came up because Abby had gone to see AI on the 11th, as a break from watching CNN all the time. Of course, you can imagine how that went if you’ve seen it. I can’t remember a mainstream movie that I found as disturbing as AI in recent memory.
If anyone has other web-comics that have had interesting pieces related to all this, please let me know.
Check out Forget Magazine, for an underground-ish Canadian perspective. The article I’m pointing you to is called ‘The Sky is falling’. Thanks to Holland for the link.
So Wil Wheaton has his own website now. I was going to be all sarcastic and stuff, but after having visted the site, I’m so longer so inclined. It’s pretty interesting. No different than any other blog out there, except that he was once a TV/Movie star (I have no idea of his current status). It’s all self-designed, managed and run, and while he gets countless hits and comments on every thing he writes, it’s actually all well written, as these things go. And he likes comics, so how bad can he be?
I’d meant to put this up the other day, but couldn’t remember the URL. So without further ado, I present Exploding Dog, a bizarre sort of site. The guy will draw these stick-people figures from titles that random people send it. There are some really neat ones, really bad ones, and more often than not, really bizarre ones. At any rate, a great place to waste an afternoon or so.
