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 “yes”. The author of Hall of Best Knowledge, blessed with an almost unnatural intellect and refinement, bravely battles the problem of a nation’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 prose—imagine the works of Chaucer projected on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel—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.
