This week's comic review
Oh my. Journey To The West is a rare find, something that can truly be called Internet Art. I haven't stumbled across work of this caliber since my earliest days hunting for webcomics. It's insanely beautiful, deep, compelling, experimental and bold. Making use of the full palatte of computer generated visual textures, as well as linkage and animation that you almost never see anymore, every panel is a visual feast unrestricted to any single artistic style. The characters are amazingly multi-dimensional given the number of pages and amount of dialog that have been published so far. The story is complex while at the same time unhurried, and involves many modern myths including one of my favorites, the Men In Black. But more than just the story, the author is packing Journey To The West with massive doses of philosophy with no fear of educational presentation. Zen anecdotes and principles are frequently explored, as is the mystery of the Sonoran west.
The Nanofics are Back
Hi all. Not much new this week. This week's nanofic is not so much a time travel story as... well, you'll see.
Here is this week's nanofic:
About my pages
My goal in adding this page to the WTS is to entertain my fellow toasters, and maybe even a small segment of the rest of the Web. I'll endeavor to add something new every week, so keep checking in, or look for any announcements about my pages in The Wunderland Weekly News.
My offerings fall into two categories: First, original works; artwork, music, photos, or writing that I'm collecting here for self-publication on a scale unimaginable a few years ago. Hopefully, the world's collective yawn won't totally blow me over, but I think you'll enjoy it if you've gotten this far. Second, Stuff I Found On The Web, brought back and held up to the light for your enjoyment. There's a whole underground world of music publication on the Web through "MIDI", and I'm also wild about Webcomics.
Go directly to the corners of my electronic world by using the navigation bar appearing at the top of this page, or jump down below that to find out what I've added this week. I'll also someday be experimenting with time, allowing you to scroll through previous weeks' versions of my pages where appropriate.
