Hall of Best Knowledge

I haven't seen anything here about the wonderful webcomic Hall of Best Knowledge, hosted on Flickr, so I thought I'd let you in on the secret.
The author is a designer/artist by the name of Ray Fenwick. The strip, alas now ended after 69 marvelous episodes, appeared in The Coast Weekly - and will, I hope, be made into a book.
Here's a short description by the author:
Can one noble genius single-handedly educate all of mankind? Although not previously possible, the answer is now most assuredly â€œyesâ€. The author of Hall of Best Knowledge, blessed with an almost unnatural intellect and refinement, bravely battles the problem of a nationâ€™s ever-increasing ignorance one engaging concept at a time. The people call out for help, in one stupid voice, and they are answered with authority.
The Hall of Best knowledge combines lush imagery with lucid proseâ€”imagine the works of Chaucer projected on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapelâ€”creating a weekly learning experience that is without equal in this or any age.
I think this neglected masterpiece deserves a Comixpedia entry. Maybe I'll write one.
