I was having a bit of a rant on ol’ Twitter last night about comics, webcomics and the fickle whims of the internet, when I came to the startling conclusion that the secret to success in this game is all Batman and/or Spiderman references, all of the time, forever and ever (and maybe cats*). I thought about shaking things up around here to appeal more to that sweet, sizeable audience… a few Batman jokes here and there, maybe resurrect the mysterious Masked Blob…
Anyway, Faraday’s nascent and deeply cynical move into the sweat ‘n’ spandex hero-comics market has been given a fantastic boost by this poster for ‘The Dark Blob Rises’ which arrived via the Tweet-machine from insanely talented illustrator and skeptical Corkman Alan Barrett. Alan, or ‘Hybrid Vigour’ as he’s know to his mum has a blogfolio which you should check out as though your life depended on it. Christopher Nolan just emailed to say it’s the second best thing he’s ever seen.
Also: Whubble is back! What’s Whubble? It is the best webcomic.
Sorry for using the word blogfolio. I’m so sorry**.
