More great comix

Postby Shepherd on Fri Oct 12, 2001 6:11 am

I've been getting a big kick out of Todd and Penguin lately, and just wanted y'all to know that.<P>Oh, and Highfalutin' DOES rock the block. I haven't had time to read the Burnt Dog Radio archives yet, but I HAVE been enjoying the last few BoxJam's Doodle...<P>...it's getting so my morning-reading list is getting unwieldy. My boss is beginning to suspect that I may not be laughing hysterically about the pharmacomedical documents I'm translating...<P>help.<P><P>------------------

I'm getting into <A HREF="http://www.plif.com" TARGET=_blank>The Parking Lot is Full</A>, <A HREF="http://www.ancientmessages.com" TARGET=_blank>Ancient Messages</A> (all right, so I am a dork) and <A HREF="http://www.explodingdog.com" TARGET=_blank>Exploding Dog</A>. ED is a weird, oddly touching comic in which the artist draws images based on phrases people send in.

Sam Brown really has a great sense of the visual - kind of like the web's Keith Haring.<P>Another comic that seems to be abuzz lately is the Makeshift Miracle. Great art (really taking advantage of the computer too) although I'm still undecided on the writing. Can't remember the URL but its on KeenSpace.<P><P>------------------

HAHAHA! I love today's "Burnt Dog."<P>Oddly enough, I've been scripting upcoming Man-Man episodes in which Anthrax plays an incredibly minor role...but based on current developments, I may have to change that...<P><P>------------------

I also enjoy the same comics, previously mentioned, even though I have yet to remember to add Burnt Dog to my links page.(smacks self in head, writes note to remember in blood on arm).

Here's my to-do list for the site...<P>- New links
- New front page text
- E-mail re. Forum
- Contest Link?
- Reformat Star Art <P>...which is my own shorthand that may not make sense to anyone else.<P>Gotta get BIDDY tonight. Oh, wait. It's an anniversary night for the goil and me. Gotta get BIDDY tomorrow night.<P>------------------

I knew I was forgetting to link someone...sorry Mr. Tanner, I've been reading Burntdog way too long to not link it, in fact, I thought I already had, sorry. <P>I don't know if anybody doesn't know about <A HREF="http://www.maakies.com" TARGET=_blank>Maakies</A>, but just to make sure, go there anyway. It is truly the Krazy Kat of our time.<P>------------------

Thanks for da link!<P>Put Fright Night on your list too if you have time. <A HREF="http://www.frightnight.org" TARGET=_blank>www.frightnight.org</A>
You can still submit a Halloween - themed comic for linkage on Haloween from frightnight.org<P>While I'm jabbering... any plans for other "__"-man's? Like, I dunno, Sloth-Man with the powers of a three-toed sloth?<P>robb-o-matic!<P>------------------

Maakies is MESSED UP, man. I love it, but I have to say that as a big Chris Ware (ACME novelty library) fan, I've been LOVING LOVING LOVING <A HREF="http://www.stoopidpigeon.com" TARGET=_blank>Stoopid Pigeon</A>. It's not for kids, but it's this twisted, brilliant low-key humour strip. Darker even than Maakies...but more unsettling, too.<P>If you like Maakies, by the way, you should check out the work of ... um... I just spent a half-hour looking for his name, and I THINK it's Marc Bell, he's a cartoonist that gets published in the Canadian music newspaper "Exclaim..." -- kind of a combo of Maakies and Jim Woodring, if I had to make an immediate comparison.<P>(edit...found a bit (VERY LITTLE) at <A HREF="http://www.highwaterbooks.com/marc.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.highwaterbooks.com/marc.html</A> ...)<P>------------------

<A HREF="http://www.leviathan.co.uk" TARGET=_blank>Leviathan</A>, by Peter Blegvad. You can't read much of it on the web, but it's brilliant. <A HREF="http://www.slowwave.com" TARGET=_blank>Slow Wave</A> is pretty good too; a weekly comic based on dream interpretations sent in by readers.<P>Oh, and there's this comic called Man-Man which I recently discovered, which is pretty good... (Keep it up, guys. It's fab.)<P>------------------

Wow. Leviathan DOES rock.<P>It has a very "Little Nemo" feel...and Slow Wave is dream interpretations... what does this say about Man-Man if you like it and these are your faves, JimRob??<P><P>------------------

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>...what does this say about Man-Man if you like it and these are your faves, JimRob??<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Note that these are two comics which seemed to fit the works-of-deep-meaningful-brilliance theme which I somehow detected in the thread. (Maakies threw me. Sorry.) I love Man-Man (and a great many other Keenspace/spot comics) for quite different reasons. Hilarity, primarily, which isn't really these comics' avowed intent.<P>------------------
