The internet cream
Now I’m no avid paper comic reader, though I’m learning, so here is a smattering of things out of the internet which anyone should enjoy. I’ll update this as I work out what’s nice to share.
Oliver East’s a genius when it comes to communicating through drawings. His visual dialect takes a few pages to tune into but it’s gorgeous. Allemansretten‘s a great starting place, and Mint 6 went online recently. The rest is on paper, drop by and I’ll lend you one.
John Campbell can’t draw, but his pictures will make you feel awful.
This is how humour works. A smart drawing hand and a sense of humour sharp and large enough to cut you up and swallow you.
A strip about terrible people who are mostly animals. The dialogue is cleverer than you but you still get it.
What it says on the tin never gets old. Wordsmith Ryan North can’t draw either, but doesn’t need to.
These words are somehow in my stomach, tying me up. Get back in my head.
Wonderful oblique storytelling as a host of fancy artists expand a fantasy fable.
Dash Shaw plays to senses you didn’t know you had.
Genuinely funny with quick execution and witsome conversations. Enjoys historical reenactment.
