All the best webcomics quote Isaac Newton.

According to the Wikiquote page on Isaac Newton, the above quote refers to a metaphor used by one Bernard of Chartres, who was a twelfth-century french philosopher.
So, you know, webcomics can be educational too.

At the very least, I feel more educated since I looked all of that up on Wikipedia just now.
I may not do a lot of research for these comics, but I do at least try to make sure I'm not being obviously stupid.

Appearing to know what I'm talking about,

The Man With No Name.

Howdy, y'all!!
How are ye?
Oops. I think my genre slipped. Never mind.

I like to think of myself as a bit of a film buff, and I do appreciate a good western every now and then.
This week's comic draws on my experience with watching westerns, and western inspired films.
Also Road Runner cartoons.
Mostly that.

I got a bit carried away with this one and it took longer than it probably should have, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
Also, I guessed what the mailman's outfit should look like, and then I googled it later on to check.
Turns out I was pretty close, at least in the sense that I found some picture of someone, somewhere, at some time wearing an outfit like it.
Frankly, that's close enough for me.

Shamelessly directing your attention to the donate button on the side of the page,

Female bass players are always cool. So says the 90s.

Ok, I'm going to say it.
I'm really pleased with how the band turned out.
I completely believe them as a band.
If they had an album, I wouldn't buy it, but I also wouldn't doubt that they exist.

This would all be great if my audience was just another thousand of me.
There would be a thousand totally convinced mees.

In case you are wondering, I spelled that last word phonetically because it's a made up word and doesn't work written down.

In other news, last week's comic was surprisingly popular, and it broke my previous most-viewed record overnight.
I basically did a perfect double-take when I checked the numbers in the morning.

Accomplished vaudevillian,
