Cavewoman
Cavewoman is a great new comic book created and drawn by Budd Root. Don't judge this book by its cover. Not just another "Bad Girl" book, but an exciting trip into the Earth's prehistoric past for Meriem and her readers.

Dreambound, The Angelic Assassin
A comedy adventure about a hitman for God that's always saving Heaven from the evil schemes of Satan (and itself).

Flaming Carrot Comics
It's nice to see Bob Burden is still around. One of the oldest independent comics (did you see the Cerebus/Flaming Carrot crossover?).

The Weird World of Glen Baxter
"Despite public health warnings, publishers continue to inflict his work upon the quaking masses thronging in the streets of our major cities."


Comic Strips

The Parking Lot is Full
"Welcome to the official homepage of the most terrifying comic strip on earth."...
A hodgepodge of strange, disturbing and comical ideas come together here to make The Parking Lot is Full. With the input and influences of many creative people, there are a wide variety of jokes and drawings, that are what we see today as the finished product. AND, they make no bones about telling you everything; where the ideas came from, the stages they went through, who is responsible; in a nutshell, everything.

Animation

Animation of Heaven & Hell in 3-D
A look at animation that deserves to be better known. Come with me to worlds both beautiful and terrible, naive and intricate. Curl up with the heavenly goodness and naivete of Art Clokey's Davey & Goliath or George Pal's Puppetoons, or be disturbed by the hellish visions of Jan Svankmejer and his "sons" The Brothers Quay. Better still, come back to the very beginning, with the amazing inventor of "puppet films", Ladislas Starevich!

Behavioral Animation
Behavioral animation is a type of procedural animation, which is a type of computer animation. In behavioral animation an autonomous character determines its own actions, at least to a certain extent. This gives the character some ability to improvise, and frees the animator from the need to specify each detail of every character's motion. Here you can learn more about behavioral animation, and there are lots of links to other sites about behavioral animation or that use it.

Resources

The Annotated Watchmen
An annotated version of Moore and Gibbons' Watchmen graphic novel. "The Annotated Watchmen was written for several reasons. The series is packed with detail, more so than almost any other, and much of that detail is easily missed. Much of the background of the world is not given straight out, but has to be inferred. There are several ongoing motifs that are worth spotting. My goal in annotating the series is to highlight and explain all these points."
