Catching Up with Modern Tales Part 6

Everyone reading the demon arc at Narbonic? Good. Also fun was the last Sunday page with discarded Narbonic plots. Garrity is actually pretty good at roughing everything out beforehand. Not sure how many webtoonists do that much ahead of the finished product.

I read the archives of new series Pipe Dreams by Scott Mills. Probably just me, but I wasn't that thrilled with it. The art is simple sketchy line work (not being familar with Mill's past work I don't know if this is an artistic choice or just how Mills always works) and since the series is a series of unconnected one panel (sometimes chopped into two or three) bits it lives or dies with each installment. A lot of them read to me like greeting cards, maybe hip greeting cards put out by Slave Labor Graphics, but basically greeting cards.
