Blog Captain and the Blog of Today

No news from me, so I thought I'd just share a few of my favourite things.

Questionable Content by Jeph Jaques is my fav'rit webcomic. Indy-music nerd love dramady. I've read every episode twice. You should too, if you're into comics, just to observe the progression of his art. I don't get a lot of the music references, but I do get the toilet humour. Anyone who has read my webcomic will notice I was muchly inspired by QC.

My other favourite webcomic is A Softer World by Emily Horne and Joey Comeau. It's not exactly funny, in the general comic strip sense, but I dig it. I've actually cried over one of these strips before. I believe that she does the pictures, and he does the words.

I'd feel bad posting this without giving props (wtf?) to my favourite Canadian webcomic, Words and Pictures by Jamie Lirette and Graham Mutch. I forget who does the words and who does the pictures.

Lastly, not my favourite webcomic, (but probably the best artistically speaking), Lackadaisy by Tracey J. Butler. Anthropomorphic cats in prohibition era St. Louis. Good stuff.

Anyways, I'm being dragged to the bar to play pool, so go check those out while I lose at 8-Ball.

P.S. I saw Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow for the first time the other day. What the hell were the filmmakers thinking? It wasn't even like, ironically good, or stupid-funny. Just tripe. Utter tripe. Don't even watch it to make fun of it. Ugh. Horrible.

If you like "A Softer World", you might also enjoy the webcomic "Tiny Ghosts", which has similar sensibilities.

So this post came at a very opportune time because I spent most of Saturday reading through Questionable Content.
