Lord Borax & Urt,
Our fictional gods.
I didn't have a lot to say when I blogged about Goliath & I don't have a lot to say now. These are really really funny; conceptually & in execution. Except when they are poignant instead. Except when they are poignant & funny, at the same time. I wanted to write something more, because I don't want my brevity to see like a lack of enthusiasm but really I think the best way for you to experience what Tom Gauld's cartoons are like are to go to his Tumblr & see for yourself. Visually they aren't anything like it, but in tone they kind of remind me of xkcd, only instead of being nerdy in a science & computers way, Gauld is nerdy in a literary way. Anyhow I really like it, & I also really like the list of characters for an epic story, so I'm going to post it again. Stock characters are my favorite! Which probably explains why I like superhero comics, come to think of it.
