'"Mystery Object" is an idea I had for a novel. I’m not a novelist, I don’t have any interest in writing a novel, but if I ever decided to write a novel, this is what I have in my back pocket. On a drive home from a convention, I told Ed Piskor about the idea, and he said I should drop everything and do that as a comic. It was good advice. So in the translation from novel to comic, I ended up making a novelistic, Joycean comic strip.' -- Tom Scioli

Fading to a lighter color in vertical comics is such a nice effect.

(There's an adaptation of Isaac Asimov's The Last Question that uses that to good effect with the ending.)

The style reminds me of that infamous tumblr post "Do you love the color of the sky?"

Reading it gives me that odd trance-like feeling in the back of my head.

Always find it interesting when Web Comics actually use and experiment with the unique features of their form. Only going from this, it seems more of a formal experiment than something particularly narratively interesting, but I'm still intrigued by it.

Has he stopped making this? The latest installment I could find was posted three years ago, and didn't seem in any way like a conclusion.

Well that's disappointing, I was really wondering where it was heading, but thanks for letting me know.
