We celebrate the latest from a venerated comics creator, determine the characteristics of cleaning fluids, glean what we can from a foreign land, question the phallus as a trope, and check our rifles one more time with our tank-searching review of Evan Dahm’s The 3rd Voice in this regent-defying episode of Digital Strips!
We run down news from Alex Norris, Jack McGee, and Evan Dahm before hopping in our station wagon and chasing both storms and our biggest fears away in the promising horizons of Shot and Chaser, in this week’s calm-before-the-storm episode of Digital Strips!
Have you seen Gone in 60 Seconds? Because from the way Steve describes it, this film sounds like a joyful romp! Other things you should check out: the comic Thief of Tales by Guillaume Bonnet, an Evan Dahm Kickstarter involving classic literature, and a new comic from Anne Szabla.
With Order of Tales wrapped and ready to be immortalized in print form for all eternity, fans of the master of all things epic and eccentric wondered when they might next see his work gracing the pages of their Internets. Thankfully, Dahm is taking no time off and his next tale from Overside, Vattu, has already begun. The archive is only seven pages deep thus far, so get in while its young and for heaven’s sake, if you haven’t read the previous works, get to that right now!
Not only is Dahm not stopping, he’s teaming up with Templar, AZ‘s Spike (the subject of our next Book Club, by the way) to create a Tumblr page dedicated to whatever the heck they might come up with together. I fully expect bizarre, hauntingly beautiful images from this thing daily, people, so bookmark it for your daily fix of the mythic and macabre.
Two great stories ended over the weekend, so it is now decided that two more must take their place! And preferably by the same creators, as both Evan Dahm and KC Green are more than welcome on my RSS feed any day.
Nothing to plug that I saw on Wednesday (but of course, if you have something to talk about, leave your Twitter feed in the comments and I’ll add it to my list) but there was something nice to ponder from Evan Dahm late that night:
Thursday was looking like another wash as far as intriguing tweets go when this juicy little bit of info came down the wire from Evan Dahm, creator of such incomparable works as Rice Boy and Order of Tales, the latter of which is the subject of this tweet thread.
