is a morbidly funny webcomic from Russo-Canadian digital artist Vitaly Alexius
). Set in the starkly diaphanous wreckage
of post-nuclear Manhattan, it follows an eccentric contingent of Soviet soldiers
as they poke through the detritus of the past and contend with the mutants, cultists, aliens, and other horrors that inhabit the ruins. The comic's striking art style
is the result of an arduous process, using "Photoshop, live actors, dead actors, sexy assistants, greenscreen, a camera, and a Wacom tablet"
to composite "6 years worth of textures: 1 terabyte of stock footage, shot in real abandoned, forgotten places of our world." This multimedia ambition has burgeoned into plans for a community-powered animated/live-action web series
). While waiting for that to come together, be sure to spend some time on Kimmo Lemetti's
excellent Gone With the Blastwave
), a very similar webcomic project with a more subdued palette that turned out nearly fifty pages of richly-illustrated post-apocalyptic humor before going on indefinite hiatus.
True American Dog
is where I go for my silliness these days. It's a single panel photoshop comic about animals. And what animals! There's Kooly the Bear
and many more. It's about as silly as it gets, in a good way.

of Marvel Comic's Civil War
storyline is that after a hero-related disaster, the government decides to force all superheroes to register, causing a split in the hero community. While heroes debate and decide which side to join, fans debate
whether or not the cross-over series is actually any good. Clearly, Christopher Bird
falls squarely on one side and has attempted to "improve" the story by starting a project to edit the dialogue of the series. (1) (2) (3)

The Wizard of Oil
Some well-done Photoshop fun to start the week - "Somewhere under the radar, way down low.
There's a land that I heard of once, where the oil still flows.
Somewhere under the radar, folks are screwed.
And the schemes that you dare to scheme really do come through.
One day I wrecked the family car, and daddy and my mummy Bar remind me,
Of my troubles taking acid drops, the night they had to call the cops,
And then they fined me.
Somewhere under the radar, I'll get high. Drink Rye under the radar,
Try, oh yes I'll still try
Why, why must I be dry?
What if Nike never apologized and then got away with it?
A few weeks ago Nike stole
Minor Threat's classic album cover and with a few tiny changes tried to make it their own to promote a skateboarding tour. Not to give other immoral megacorps any ideas, but...
Martha Stewart's got a new project on her hands:
redecorating her jail cell. With a little lace, some scented contraband and a lot of time, cell ML-122 will be fit for the matriarch of homemaking
in no time. Check out this gallery

So you're tired of hearing about the war,
eh? Me too, but you have to have some concern over what would happen if the USA loses
. I bet you Saddam's first move as president would be to ban photoshop
The SomethingAwful goons are on a GWB photoshopping spree. Oh man, I haven't laughed this hard in a long time.
