Last stop. Boney Borough.

Welcome to Boney Borough, a place where the unit of currency is credits or creds; the most popular (and illegal) sport is DieBall, a game in which the players rub an adhesive, gooey, and brain-damaging substance called Die Gunk on their hands and bodies to help them hold on to the ball; and where one itinerant, nicotine-patch addict, self-proclaimed botany professor, Professor Panther, spreads his knowledge of hallucinogenic plants throughout the town like wildfire. Oh, and did I mention that Boney Borough and its inhabitants are also being watched over by aliens, who are using the townsfolk as guinea pigs in a single-minded experiment? Or, it might be best to say, like ants in a colony....

This is BodyWorld
, a comic by Dash Shaw
. And it's all online
First serialized online, the comic is now available in printed form
, and is a finalist in the Graphic Novel category of the LA Times Book Prizes
. In a recent interview about the comic
, Shaw said he posted the work online first because by the time something gets printed, he's outgrown it.
If the pages from the all online
are too long, you can view a more segmented version, starting with the prelude
, which appears to be lacking chapter 12
(warning: long page, lots of images to load, and it's the end of the story). And don't forget to keep an eye on the Boney Boroughs maps
