I realise that everyone and their dog has the new copy of Runaways before me, mainly because my local comic provider is in some sort of time warp. Anyway, this moment caused me to laugh for a good few minutes. It's such a teenager moment.

I've been watching the events in Iran--what one can find out through the web, because the networks are blind--and was reminded of some work by Garth Ennis and Alan Moore that, at least in scraps, helps give a little bit of context to our historical place in this whole mess.

He's baby sitting Venom, and flicking small objects at rats to pass the time.As a rule, I don't care too much for Bullseye, but this page caught my funny bone.  Enjoy!

Digger is only sort of a webcomic, in the sense that the entire series can be read online, and a new page is released every Tuesday and Thursday. But you can also buy paperback volumes of it.

Digger is a sentient wombat. Wombats, as Vernon sees them, are work-oriented, down-to-earth creatures with no use for magic or gods, as such things tend to complicate building secure tunnels. This doesn't protect Digger herself from becoming embroiled with the god Ganesh, a mad teenage priestess, an oracular slug, a baby demon, and a tribe of sentient hyenas. And more.

Digger herself is deeply charming. She's slow to anger, even befriending people who originally tried to eat her with no grudge held, but when something does make her mad, watch out. With no fuss or dramatics, she does her duty. When a magician is telling her what happened to his last apprentice, he asks, "If I gave you a box and told you that it must never be opened, what would you do?" She immediately starts talking about how to encase it in steel and concrete, not even thinking of the temptation members of less pragmatic species (like, you know, humans) feel at such a command.

The story has a great deal of humor, especially based on the bizarre magics and circumstances that intertwine, but it's also an epic adventure, and a fascinating twisty plot.

In sum, this is a really good comic, and all of you should go read it. It was nominated for an Eisner and you have hundreds of pages of it to enjoy. Under the cut is a scan from it for legality and tantalization.

And here is the link to the comic!

This started off as a Father & Son post for [insanejournal.com profile] pindrops but it got a little off the beaten track. Hopefully, still enjoyable! It's by no means comprehensive but just some of the ones I saved and liked. There is a rather large first scan under the cut, so dial-up be aware.

Isn't it always that way, between fathers and sons? )

In solidarity with and support for the people of Iran, a moment of melodramatic liberation from Moore & Lloyd: the climax to V For Vendetta that the makers of the film didn't think was good enough.
