Tim reads webcomics (October 7, 2010)
Welcome to “Tim reads webcomics”, a semi-regular feature where I showcase what’s going on in various webcomics around the web. The fact that I link a webcomic doesn’t mean I think it’s good, unless I explicitly say so. Mostly it will be just irreverent commentary that has nothing to do with what the artists intended to say. I appreciate any feedback, because as you may notice I’m kinda new here! What comics do you think would make a good fodder for this digest?
Girl Genius (04/10/2010)
Steampunk + Tentacle Porn? If that sounds like your thing, the latest happenings in Girl Genius feature exactly that. Well, maybe minus the “porn” part. Although undoubtedly many will enjoy seeing Agatha entangled by green vines of doom while giggling like a schoolgirl.
Holy shit, this guy has a really long neck. Could that be a side effect of the cure? I guess the story of Thalidomide didn’t teach us anything.
Minimum Security (06/10/2010)
In one of the most insane comics ever, protagonists blow up the construction site of a nuclear power plant because it “pollutes the environment” or something. However the evil capitalist ecocidal environment polluters are unfazed by this righteous attack! What will happen next? Fact: the author wants 99% of the world’s population to die off and the remaining people must survive by sustenance. Another fact: author can’t draw to save her life. Case in point: Kranti’s hand in panel 3.
Unwinder’s Tall Comics (07/10/2010)
Unwinder’s Tall Comics is a comic that is consistently awesome, but unfortunately doesn’t have much recognition and is overshadowed by other, less awesome comics. In this installment, Mildred has a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming and we get a peek at another sci-fi classic by the late Gary P. Rastov. One of the cool things about this comic is that it has actual seasons. There’s no story-related reason why the characters are wearing warm clothes. They do because it’s autumn! Now go, and read the damn comic.
