Reading Phoebe And Her Unicorn from the beginning, online, is -- interesting.

You see, after several years, it got launched as a newspaper comic.  Which meant a whole pile of new readers had to be introduced from the start.

Some repeat comics, some using the same gag, some comics depicting the same events -- a distinct tendency to compress into one or two comics something that was a whole story arc earlier.  Like the spelling bee arc that introduced Max.

Picked up a couple since last I discussed them.  Both are rather new, so they are not yet fully formed.  However, they are interesting:

Freefall

Ah, Freefall.  If you're not reading this comic, I recommend it.  Start it here.

And if you have been reading it, you want to catch up before you read this.  Because the spoiler is enormous --

All the mystery about Dr. Bowman suddenly appears as misdirection, because finally we know his biggest secret.  And in spite of learning of the existence of intelligent chimpazees, and their psychology -- why, there are so many more humans of such bad character that I doubt that anyone guessed that Dr. Bowman was not human.

Such wonderful, wonderful, wonderful set up and foreshadowing, and such an astounding reveal.

And he caps it all with the perfect punchline.  "Somehow, you expected me to be taller."  Which manages to underscore that we did have expectations, without realizing it, despite the way the comic talked at length about how little was known about Dr. Bowman.  And be funny as well.

Such a wonderful comic!

Inspired by reading Flash Gordon: The Alex Raymond Sunday Strips Vol. 1.

It definitely has its historical interest going for it.Read more... )

Don't Split The Party by Rich Burlew.  Volume 4 of Order of the Stick.

Spoilers ahead for the earlier volumes.

For once there is a preface by a character, and Burlew's introduction, but no foreword.  Usually he had a noted fantasy writer or something who was a fan write one.  This volume, he has a page about Gary Gygax and David Arneson, to dedicate the book to their legacy.  (This also has the two tribute comics.)
