My failing eyesight is even more boring, as I can't seem to make the images large enough to enjoy.

Click "all sizes" above the comic to get a readable size.

...then click "Back to the Flickr photo page," select the next comic, and click "all sizes" again, then click back to the stream, select the next comic, then click....

Eh. Needs a website.

These are hilarious and interesting, despite the crappy interface.

Definitely worth a read.

Sure, Flickr is no good for serial comics, but yes, great strip. Well worth reading. I learned quite a bit, and was entertained as well. Thanks.

Yeah, ugh. Almost every time I'm sent to flickr for something, I notice how badly the Full Size view needs a "Next In Set" button to get me to the full size of the next one. Never more so than with comics. Why do the people post the comics to the flickr? THE WHY?

Excellent comic, though. Little bit of a Joe Sacco versus Julie Doucet vibe.

Is a testament to the quality of the strip that I read it through the awful flickr interface.

Ditto, thanks for the link Pope Guilty.

What happened to flickr's "no drawings" rule? I thought they used to delete stuff that wasn't photos.

I like the strip, but I cast a wary glance to the fact that when I go to his site it wants me to accept a certificate from Sup with that?

Hint: on the main set page, hit "Slideshow" then pause it and click through the comics one by one. They'll be at a readable size. At least they are for me.

I'm reminded of Palestine by Joe Sacco. Highly recommended.
