Today, I've been cleaning up; doing what was left undone on Monday. One of my tasks was to update my links page with all the new web comics and whatnot. I feel I should call a few of them out.
- Sfeer Theory is incredible. It's not long so far, but has a late Colonial era with magic deal going on with some fantastic writing and delectable art.
- The Fox Sister is done by the same artist as Sfeer Theory, but a different writer. The archive isn't long right now, but it contains a nearly heart-stopping moment. Excellent stuff.
- I can't remember if I've mentioned Cucumber Quest before, but it's good enough to mention again, even if I did. It's a zany take on a quest story, and the art is great. The art looks simple, but if you look there are plenty of subtle touches that show there is a lot of craftmanship being applied here. The expressions are fantastic and the character design is great.
- Goblins takes a while to get going--I've had aborted attempts at crawling through its archive before--but once it gets going ... oh my! There's some great pathos and cliff hangers in there, and the art gets better. Warning: it does have some extreme gore in it. Also, most of the humor requires Dungeons & Dragons experience.
- String Theory is a dark little spiral of situations going from bad from worse, but it is a strangely compelling look at how a semi-respectable scientist heads down the road to super villainy. It doesn't have much gore, but it can be disturbing purely on an emotional level.
As long as I'm making recommendations, I'll throw out my pitch for The Civil Wars as well. They're a country-ish duo. They're just fantastic; so good I can barely stand it. They have awesome vocals and catchy songs. Most mornings I am waking up with one of their tunes in my head. Go listen and enjoy!
Ok, now I'm going to go play some Skyrim. I'll probably re-emerge from that in a month or two.
