UPDATED: Midnight here, filling in for Steve, who once again darted off to points unknown with nary a word beforehand. I’ll fill in the blanks for this episode via his hastily scrawled notes. Also, I promise not to sound so off-in-a-cave-somewhere-ish next time.
It’s only right to start this Horizons Watch episode with a comic that shows tremendous promise, despite only having one page posted thus far:

Next up, a mention of the perfect “WTF But This Is Awesome” comic on the web trifecta comprised of:

I would just like to point out that the “Peeing on the guy’s head” intro, is basically ripped from the movie version of R Crumb’s “Fritz the Cat” just saying…
Also, I think Kickgirl has way more Anime influence than you guys are giving it credit for… See: “Slayers” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSC4nCa6Qw4
I *JUST* found this review of Mystery Babylon today, even though it’s over a year old now, and I just gotta say… THANK YOU!! 😀
Really happy to hear such a nice review… you guys are awesome. ?
and technically, the comic is called “Mystery Babylon”, but “Kick Girl” works just as good too! haha 🙂
