Jason Shiga is an inventive cartoonist and the creator of FLEEP, a comic serialized at Modern Tales back in 2003. Shiga is fairly prolific and has posted to his website many other examples of his work over the years. His most recent graphic novel Bookhunter was nominated for an Eisner award this year and he's already at work on new comics.
Back in 2003, one of the first webcomics reviewed by ComixTalk was a cute little absurdist riff called Bueno The Bear. Bueno the Bear was a strange, but sweet-natured aburdist bit of humor; alas it's creator Pendleton Ward took the archives down from the web. Curious as to what Ward is up to now, I got a chance to interview him via email.
