The first issue of the new EVE Online comic book
from Dark Horse comics is now available for free download
(free registration required). What's particularly interesting about the "EVE: True Stories" comic series is that the stories are retellings of actual player-driven game events. The first story to be adapted is the downfall of the Band of Brothers alliance, which we talked about previously

Tales of the Beanworld ("A most peculiar comic book experience")
recently resumed publication after a long hiatus. It's a strange and abstract mix of Native American mythology and culture, with a strong ecological focus, into an wonderfully charming cosmology. While it certainly invites, uh, overthinking
, it's also entertaining on a purely casual level.
A sample short Beanworld story
is on the Dark Horse Comics Myspace page.
If you have questions about it, the BeanWeb
just may have answers, along with illustrations from the comics. There is now a Beanworld Wiki
to supplement it, and creator Larry Marder keeps a blog
where he talks about things bean.
Okay, now that it's properly introduced... the real
point of this post is to link to this awesome Beanworld Flash cartoon
, animated by Fashionbuddha and with music by They Might Be Giants!
