A Lesson Is Learned But the Damage is Irreversible
Not a preachy op-ed, but a relatively new webcomic. Watch out for the green flame, it turns things into reptiles. (via Death to the Extremist)

That looks fantastic.
The end panel for todays strip "Sally, you must shut down the reactor...It's powered by secrets" is so shudderingly close to Gaiman I almost shuddered.

"And now, as expressed in his will, all the porn on Dale's computer will be shown to the mourners."

I'm laughin'.

their palette is incredible, and not just the colors. Quite a range of compositional contrasts, and it still flows rather seamlessly, surreal. I really like this.

I was aked to post this to the thread:

"Dear PinkStainlessTail,

I'm a long-time lurker on MetaFilter, and a friend (not to mention a
high school classmate) of David Hellman and Dale Beran, creators of
ALILBTDII. I flipped when I saw the comic get its own FPP, because it
was only a few short months ago that Dale, David and I got stinking
drunk in downtown Baltimore and they showed me the first installments
of the then-tentatively-titled "Spreadjam." I suggested the title
"Carnage Boobies," just for the audience-attracting qualities of the
name, but was soundly voted down by David, Dale and the attractive
blonde waitress who provided our white wine and sushi.

To make a long story short, I left a message on David's voicemail as
soon as I saw your FPP, to let him know that the strip had truly hit
the big time. I assure you that he and Dale will be astonished and
thrilled to learn that their humble work is lauded in the hallowed
halls of the Blue.

I would appreciate it immensely if you would post the text of this
E-mail in the thread. I would do it myself, of course, but I have
sadly not yet been able to acquire a MetaFilter account of my very

Yours with gratitude,
Nathan Rosen"
