By The Time You Read This, I Will Be On My Way To The Party

So here’s a travelling thought for you all — I picked up Lars Brown’s North World volume 2 (which you can find serialized online) last week, but just had a chance to read it. It’s a lot of fun, it builds on vol1 nicely, and I can’t tell you too much because the book includes things that haven’t happened in the webcomic yet.

But let’s just say that it’s a nice job of telling Conrad’s story, that it sets up volume 3 by having a deep cast of interesting characters, and that it’s a clever inversion of the Joseph Campbell hero’s journey — sometimes, the interesting things happen when you stop hunting monsters, come back to the ol’ hometown, and become an accountant.
