has their friends and favorite sites and I'm no different. Here are
a few of my favorite things:
Pro Motion Creative Media
Solutions is where I hung my hat for four years. A media purchaser
with ad agency capabilities, Pro Motion has big company experience at
small company prices. Give them a look.
PVP is the absolute funniest strip on the web, bar none.
While the premise is about the daily goings on at a fictitious gaming
magazine, PVP will rip not only on electronic gaming and the gaming
community, but all gaming and gamers as well as popular culture, comic
books, growing older, puppy love, and office politics. A daily must-read.
Sluggy Freelance is my other
web strip addiction. The granddaddy of webstrips, Sluggy has been dealing
with the ridiculous and the sublime since 1997. Rich in character history
and often only funny if you know the backstory, Sluggy is still well
worth the hours you will put in reading the last few years worth of
strips. The Fire and Rain storyline alone is worth the effort.
Scott McCloud is the
writer/illustrator of the classic comic book "Zot", the author
of "Understanding Comics" and "Reinventing Comics",
and a visionary when it comes to the future of comics, the web, and
comics on the web. His website and philosophy are both fascinating -
be sure to check out the "24 Hour Comic Experiment" section.
Strangers in Paradise
is a comic book like no other and is my favorite read. David loves Katchoo,
Katchoo loves Francie, Francie loves Katchoo but can't get over the
fact she's a woman, and that's just the first three issues. The collected
editions read like printed movies. The comic for people who don't read
Gun Street Girl is an excellent web comic written by an acquaintance
of mine, Barb Lien-Cooper. Liz is the hired muscle (or "Gun")
of smalltime wizard, Eddie, and these are the tales of their misadventures
together on the fringes of the real and supernatural worlds. Very original
and quite entertaining with some nifty artwork, Gun Street Girl is one
of the founding strips on GraphicSmash, a sister site to Modern Tales,
a webcomic subscription service. Barb is an amazing talent, and will
be a force to be reckoned with in the near future.
