Vicious Souvenirs returns!

John Barber's CCA-nominated series Vicious Souvenirs has returned to ModernTales following long-lasting and near-fatal computer problems.

Returning to its fortnightly schedule, chapter 3 of Last Train to Tomorrow, "A Equals A", has media-mogul turned would-be world conqueror Dorian Closer coming to America and igniting the biggest riot in the nation's history.

Meanwhile the mysterious Anias makes a mysterious phone call that could have important consequences for all the cast.

Barber has also recently debuted two medium-bending efforts at Modern Tales Longplay. Ambient History is the sideways-scrolling montage of images and fragments of conversation, about Jack the Ripper, immortality, and the romance of stalkers that prompted Bill Duncan to declare "John Barber is a webcomic prophet!"

Kicking Hitler to Death is Barber's first collaboration with webcomics pioneer Daniel Merlin Goodbrey--a violent and funny little thing in which somebody kicks...ah, but that would be telling.

Barber's other comics can be found, as always, at
