On the Road of Knives is never-ceasing illustrated carnage... Zak Smith, Shawn Cheng and Nicholas Di Genova alternate drawing a perpetual narrative of monsters killing monsters being fought by monsters.

Cool stuff, pokermonk. I love Di Genova but hadn't seen this before. Thanks.

I like the lines they're making. Kooky.

My son played this game when he was thirteen--he and his two buddies would engage in three-way combat, sometimes forming monster alliances, sometimes ruthlessly cut-throat. They even had rules: some characters, like Master Chief from Halo, had to be earned through a couple drawing turns, while their current monster took damage (which is where alliances would kick in).

Cool to see this up on the web.

Man, kids are spoiled these days... When I was 13, we have Mario in a Tanooki suit.

Like Ralph Steadman illustrating DnD. Nice find.

Interesting drawings, but I prefer The Superest in which Kevin Cornell and Matthew Sutter draw ever more "powerful" superheroes.

If I imagine a desert backdrop, lots of these seem very Mos Eisley.
