On Calling Graphic Novels What They Are

(… which is, you know, comics).

I wrote a little article that is getting picked up a few places. Check it out, if you’re interested.

I’m not entirely comfortable writing something made entirely out of words. It feels like cheating to not spend a couple weeks creaking out a bunch of ink drawings before sending something out into the world.

Week 35: The Pale, The Cold

Folks! That’s the end of Volume One of the Mummy’s Sabbatical!

Next is an extended hiatus. Boo! Hiss! Right? But Benito and I have to turn our attention to other projects, and… well, it could be awhile until we can get back to Setka and Fran.

But! There are a couple things that will pop here from time to time, including a guest strip or two, so do keep us in mind.

Thank you for your attention and support, and I hope we can get back to this project as soon as possible.

Happy Holidays to you all!

In particular, Professor Setka wishes you a happy feast day in celebration of the Miraculous Birth of Horus! Roast up an antelope, put out a basket of figs, and pile up the honey cakes!

The fine athletics teams of Presbyter King University are represented by Shagmar the Scrappy Sciapod!

Sciapods are a hairy folk with one leg and one giant foot, which they use to shade themselves from the blistering desert sun. They were subjects of PKU’s patron saint, Prester John, Priest-King of Not-India, along with the Blemmyae, the Panotti, and the Cynocephelai (these last our own heroes encountered upon the Moon).

Somewhere, on some hard drive or other, I have a bunch more of these pictograms. I’ll post ’em if I find ’em.

Week 31: A Post-Modern Prometheus

Week 31: A Post-Modern Prometheus published on No Comments on Week 31: A Post-Modern Prometheus

We rest; A dream has power to poison sleep.
We rise; One wandering thought pollutes the day.
We feel, conceive, or reason; laugh or weep,
Embrace fond woe, or cast our cares away;
It is the same: for, be it joy or sorrow,
The path of departure still is free.
Man’s yesterday may ne’er be like his morrow;
Nought may endure but mutability!

—Mary Shelley, FRANKENSTEIN

We interrupt our story to bring you this very important message!

You can find your Senator’s number here.
You can find your Representative’s number here.

It really is easy and it really does matter—apparently, each call is assumed to represent 50 people who didn’t call.

And name specific issues! The aide on the other line is probably checking off boxes on a form.

REPRESENT!
