Quiet Times

Maybe it’s just because I’m finishing up the copy of Set It To Awesome I picked up at MoCCA (short version: it rules; slightly longer version: although the smallish size makes some details hard to pick out, it rules; definitive version: although the smallish size makes some details hard to pick out, it rules and I can’t wait for the Reprographics2 volume and not just ’cause I’ll be in it), I’ve been poking around photocomics for a bit.

Lots of familiar ones out there (did you catch Rick Marshall’s interview last week with Emily Horne & Joey Comeau?) and at least one new one. Ben Heaton, one of the twisted geniuses behind Terror Island (two years old today, as it turns out) and The Ham Project is now running a second photo comic (or fumetto if you wanna be all art-school about it): Request Comics.

Pretty simple: you email the request, Heaton finds a way to photograph it, hilarity ensues. If nothing else, you’ll never look at a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors again. Just try your fancy kiddie-mind-control-tricks on an angry boar, Howard Tayler!

Mind-control doesn’t work on the mindless. Even I know that. For angry boars I recommend a team of trained men with barbed spears.

Or maybe a gaggle of critics. Oh ZING DID YOU SEE WHAT I JUST DID THERE?
