Simply a thread for posting individual strips you think are *awesome.*

Don't post your own comics, and don't just pimp your friends' comics--that would be gauche you know.

I guess we also shouldn't post strips for which the publisher has specifically forbidden reposting--but I don't know of any *awesome* comics that do that...well okay maybe The Far Side. And probably most other syndicated print comics (most of which are not awesome so no worries!)

~~~~~~~~~~

I'll get us started; here's an old Toothpaste for Dinner I came across recently (actually from reading a print book of it! the only print webcomic book I have, and have had for years without finishing yet :P) whose middle line just amuses me oh so endlessly:



(Ooh see Toothpaste for Dinner's "usage guidelines" require that you link back to the site. This kind of thing is so much simpler when the authors just stick their URL into the comic graphic. :P)

I *did* find this strip through the author's sig on this forum, but we aren't friends yet in any particular way as far as I know, so you see I'm totally not breaking the letter of my own rule by posting this one... Um.

(Also if he doesn't like me posting this in-line I'll take it out and just leave the link: http://www.jonathondalton.com/?p=345 --but it really demands to be seen!)

For a Winsor McCay fan such as myself, this tribute/parody of McCay's "Little Nemo in Slumberland" is wicked awesome:



Did you know McCay often drew his whole comic, word balloons and all, before going back and lettering it? At least, that's how it seems to me; so many of his balloons end up cramming the last words up at the bottom, or get filled out with filler like Nemo's "um's." I think a lot of the time he just put in empty balloons as he drew, figuring such and such character should probably say something in the current panel, but he hadn't figured out exactly what they'd say yet. The dialogue was often very secondary for him; in lots of his strips the dialogue is really very abstract, or just characters commenting on what is happening in the drawing.

Also funny because he's using a Kate Beaton-esque cartoon cat. ;)

Holy crap, Ben, that is astonishing! I am all the more impressed by J Dalton Smile

He got the wonky lettering nearly perfect! Very Happy

Yep! Should'a crammed some down into the corner of a balloon or two through, then it would'a been perfect. ;D

That cover is full of win.

This is from Lilith, a comic I'm *ahem* not friend with the author but I read it frequently. I particularly like this because of the motion. Here's the link:http://sweetlilith.smackjeeves.com/comics/709554/page-20/

And here's the strip:
