It's a bird, it's a plane, It's....Major Power!
Celina Utilities has come up with a comic book superhero whose job it is to keep the power flowing. His arch enemy? Squirrels. Those little tree rats are jumping on his power lines and making life generally difficult for the rest of us. And he's not happy.
There are some little comic strips on this page, and a link to the artist, Dan Davis
, who has a decent resume himself. Via the Wall Street Journal

Nobody came to my Winter Solstice party
I'm not accusing anyone, just asking why and what gives.

It's very negative. Can I call you 'Misdirected Energybot'?

Soft and still
is the artwork of Nowhere Girl
, a comic about a depressed, painfully shy and disaffected girl named Jamie. The settings and the tempo of the art seem to grab me and hold. I don't like many of the webcomics I've found on the internet, but I think this one stands out for its sincerity. Are there any other online comics like this one?

Rhymes With Orange
was one of my favorite comic strips a few years ago, but when it stopped running regularly in my area I forgot all about it. Looks like it's being archived now. [more...]

Guess who's coming to breakfast?
The most rapidly syndicated comic strip since Calvin & Hobbes. Not bad for a cartoon
that has the relatively narrow purpose of "telling jokes about black people to black people." Is it doing so well because of
the politics or in spite of
the politics? Or is it just that it's pretty damn funny and well-drawn? In any case, if it gives people even a glimpse of otherwise absent diversity, I love it.

When I Am King
seems to be the latest supercool discovery in online comics. This guy updates weekly, and he's got 18 episodes so far.

is a cool online comic by David Gaddis. It's received a minor plug before
but I think it deserves a little more attention. I don't want to give away too much but it's not some angsty ode to genital rings or anything. Caution: big files.

So the election is over and you're sad. Right? Right? Er, well, anyway, check out this hilarious (and as-yet-unfinished) online comic featuring the guy we all secretly wanted to vote for. If we didn't already. (Features naughty words at times.)

Sorry, but that's the only adequate description for it...
I love PLIF
