142. A Change of Scene

A moment’s silence please, for this week Calamities of Nature, one of my favourite webcomics of the last few years, was retired gracefully by its creator due to the pressures of real life and career.  Even though it was becoming increasingly esoteric recently, it was always essential reading and will be sorely missed.  You can check out my Calamities guest strip here.

    But what do the other pullies do?!?!

    I love the kind of casually absurd/surreal world that they live in.

  2. Antoine Gagnon

    Love it!
    That’s the beauty of comics. You can have a whole strips without dialogues and yet, it tells so much. His face when he looks at the night version of the scenery is priceless

    Beautifully drawn, and inspiring. Now I’ll have to start tugging on tree branches to see what happens.

    NKH - Man, I’d love to know that too. I’m a big fan of those tantalising little details in comics/books/movies that extend the story/world beyond the main narrative.

    Antoine - Wordless comics are great – I love when the opportunity to do one comes along.

    Justin - Cheers, don’t tug too hard though – squirrels!

    Really cool, but he mustn’t be in Ireland as there would have been a substantial fine, a thick white line with a strongly worded message telling him not to cross it and the pullie would have been contained in a glass box to only be broken in the case of an emergency! xox

    Ha, love this one – and beautifully drawn too.

  7. Alotron

    Aoife - Heh, true. There’d still be a little fella in a scruffy uniform lurking nearby to tell you off though…

    DJ - Cheers!

    Excellent non-dialogue strip. Very well put together Alotron

    Thank you sir!
