I'm a little flabbergasted that this never made it onto mefi. although graphics intensive, it is some brilliant work(delicate sensibilities beware: sexual situations and profanity abound). unfortunately, it has not been updated for quite some time. i only bring it up because it is another neglected web depot that i regularly enjoyed(like my boot).

Liesuretown is one of the best things on the web. This guy cracks me up. I, too, am amazed that it has escaped mefi.

That was good. Animals subbing for corporate types is almost always good....

Some of my favorite LT bits:

A Comedy Crisis-- It USED to be a bunch of random Dilbert comics with profanities and such, but the powers that be were not pleased. (You may have seen them turn up on rotten.com as well)

Around and Around-- I'll never look at the cereal aisle the same again!

The Dog Messiah-- "I'm raging with all the fires of hell." Plus, those orbiting stars, to show he's REALLY mad!

Winter Pageant-- A short film in the middle of the story. Some of that kid's remarks are priceless, especially when combined with the dopey rabbit face.

Anyone else have any favorite bits?

I for one love Umbrella Patrol, and also I'm weirdly moved by the Joycean disintegration of the narrative at the end of Q.A. Confidential.

I thought it was the Metreon but I'm not totally sure.

I knew it looked familiar. I was in there last January...

But when, oh when, will Tristan Farnon grace us with a new episode? "Q.A. Confidential" is over a year old... I can only hope that all this time he's been working on an even more epic tale of hilarity and horror for the world to enjoy.

Nothing I can say will sufficiently manifest my affinity for this sheer brilliance. Simply amazing.

I would agree. The amount of anger in Q.A. is superb. Truly wonderful, creative, FOUR STARS.

Brilliant stuff. Long, but worth it.

There is also a great new interview with Farnon on The Comic Journal's website:
