Parallax: space opera for the New Sincerity. "Imagine you're watching funny-animal Star Trek. Except every other episode is from the point of view of the Borg." - a new comic series (and maybe someday animation?) from MeFi's own egypturnash. Previous projects include Decrypting Rita (previously) - the complete story of a robot lady dragged out of reality by her ex-boyfriend, 5 Glasses of Absinthe - smutty adventure fun (WIP), and the Silicon Dawn Tarot (previously). [via mefi projects, which has much more detail]

I get a page that just says "PARALLAX" at the top with like Patreon, About Us, Last page, etc, but no images. No errors in the dev console and everything seems to load OK. Chrome on OSX if that matters.

If I click "Last page" I get a page of comics and I can use that to go back to the first page, which is here

Huh. I thought I’d successfully clicked through earlier, I guess not.

Yessssss. I have comics on Safari on iOS.

Tarot of the Silicon Dawn is one of my prized possessions. It's gorgeous and strange and wise. Looking forward to this.

Sorry about that, y'all. The cache plugin was acting up for everyone who was not me. I've turned it off for now and things seem to be showing up properly. I'm gonna have to spend a day swearing at the backend soon, but not today.

Was also here to say that I have their tarot deck and it is a thing of amazing beauty. I haven't done any readings with it yet, but I do pull it out and explore the deck and read about the cards. I'll do a reading one of these days. (I'm a bit overly-fond to my Cosmic Tribe deck.)

Cartoon Network didn't bite then

Their loss. Can't wait to dig into this.

That Tarot of the Silicon Dawn looks intriguing, as well. You could put me down for a copy if it's reprinted.

Am I the only one seeing the images with text just barely big enough to read and no way to enlarge?
