House of J wrote:The other webcomic I read this week is called Femme Noir, by Christopher Mills & Joe Staton:
The three online stories are fun, with a Dick Tracy sort of feel and a sort of stereotypical female reporter/crimefighter. Femme Noir is all about celebrating those old newspaper strips, and the creators do a great job evoking the spirit of them while adding a few touches of their own.
Although the means to view them online was fast & convenient, the lettering was a little hard to make out on my screen which sometimes kept me from staying engrossed in the narrative. I've been surprised at the sheer number of webcomics out there this week, but I still don't feel 100% comfortable reading them in this format.

I spent the last few days reading this zuda based web comic. Take 2 things I love dearly, westerns and werewolves and put em together and it is instant win. I will admit some of the frames were a little hard to follow but in the end it was a pretty fun read. The art was ok at first but either it grew on me or it hit it's stride after about 30 pages or so. I do think that they killed off a main character a little too soon and utilized their twist in the story a little impatiently but maybe that is the type of pacing web comics have? I dunno? I am not sure that I like reading comics on my computer, I still think I prefer the floppies but this was a pretty good introduction for me but I will admit to hoping digital comics are not the next evolution of comics but I also fear change so what the hell... anyways if you feel like killing some time check out this supernatural western tale, there are worse things you could be doing.
STORY - 7
ART - 8

In terms of viewers, Bleedingcool has a great one--most of them are serviceable, some of them suck too hard to continue no matter how much I liked the comic. Now that I've looked at a number of them, I am renewing my commitment to paper for the foreseeable future. Besides simply a better viewer, changes would have to be made in the computer's screen itself before I would ever "go digital".
thefourthman wrote:this is the way I feel. Even with an acceptable viewer like the Zuda program, the print versions are just so much better. It is easier on the eyes, if I want to check something out for some reason it isn't some series of backing out, I just turn to the fucking page.
Also, I like books. I like the way they feel. I like the way they smell. I like the way the color seeps into paper. I just like books.
I did look at the nook while I was waiting on the movie today and that thing is pretty impressive. It seems like a much better reading vehicle than morgan's kindle.

Readers and travelers might favor those goldurned plastic crapboxes, but book lovers are who pay the bills. There is a random chance to browsing a true book shop (not a Half Assed Books full of publishers overstock) that will never be improved upon by sitting at home on your ass. Which reminds me, read Hannah Arendt's Origins of Totalitarianism if you haven't (in book form if you please) and then let's talk about the kind of convenience-driven future being crafted for kids like Morgan by our captains of industry, and what she might never know she's lost in the deal. ( Hi Royal Nonesuch!)
thefourthman wrote:hey dammit. I teach morgan all about how things are different in real form.
I saw a book at the bookstore today about a book thief, it looked cool... do you know which one it was?... it was recent and in hardcover had a bunch of bookcases on the cover, was based on a true story and had to do with literary obsession.
