Scarf

December 17th, 2013

EmmyC's webcomic Scarf is gorgeous. The first half dozen or so pages don't look like anything special, but once her main character looks out of the window to see why it's so light in the middle of the night the story gets going properly and she gets to show off her lovely way with snow and ice and a strikingly red scarf.

Itty Bitty Orphan Black

December 15th, 2013

Reading Issue 1 of Itty Bitty Orphan Black's Marvel Babies-style prequel to Orphan Black, I'm torn between thinking how nicely the cartoonist has captured Lil' Cosima, Sarah, Helena and Alison and remembering that according to season 1 of the show they didn't know one another existed when they met as adults so how the hell could they all have gone to school together! I'm trying hard to let the former reaction win out.

Little Orphan Black cast (cast)

If you missed Orphan Black then it's well worth catching up on, not just for Tatiana Maslany's amazing performances as about half of the main cast, but also for the way they kept on piling up the complications across the entire first season and teased so many potentially fun plots for season 2.1 Please let the writers not screw it up in season 2 by losing control of their plot.

  1. Me, I want to know more about what Mrs S was involved in back in the day: I'm damn sure there's more to it than Felix and Sarah know.

Patrick Farley's Cloverfield Rebooted

One day a monster appeared in Central Park. He stood almost 300 feet tall and was made entirely of golden cake.

Also worth a read: Siri Reads The Book of the Dead.

If you don't know who Patrick Farley is, you could do worse than check out The Spiders or Apocamon. I can't believe he first published them a whole decade ago.
