Levi Levi Chapter 3: Epic Problems at APPIC is posting! …every Thursday. I know it’s been a while, but the story of Levi’s adventures at the Amateur and Professional Private Investigator’s Conference is about to unfold.
Also starting up again are random comics on the Drawing board. They will be posting intermittently on Tuesdays and have all sorts of sarcastic commentary on libraries and copyright, fooling around by Carmine and Vinny, and bits and blurbs from movies, songs, and books.
You can now own your very own copies of No Evil issues one and two!
No Evil issue one: Wherein we meet Clay Jackson, Ruby Sloan and Morton; three scarred and dysfunctional mediums who travel the country doing seances and spirit clearing at the behest of their boss, and carnival owner, Mr. Gary.
No Evil issue two – The Zombie: A co-production of yours truly and Richard of DoomedMovieThon. Richard sends our heroes, Clay, Ruby, and Morton to a little out of the way hotel to solve the mystery of an alarming and persistent zombie haunting.
If you have clicked around on the site lately, you may have noticed some changes, especially where the comics are concerned. In an attempt to raise the profile of the comics, I have given them their own mini-sites within the LeEMSmachine.
This means, for you RSS feed reader readers, that the RSS feed you are currently subscribed to for the Bean will not show the comics. I’ll post alerts here when there is a comic posting, and especially when a new comic story line is debuting…which will happen soon. In the meantime, explore and have fun!
Hey, so I’ve noticed that comic postings can sometimes get buried and not be obvious. I’m working on a new way to run my comics on my site, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy these slices of library life:
I did a comic…before I was posting them through the fancy comic posting plug in for WordPress, and it was calledUnlikely Bedfellows.This is Ono, from Unlikely Bedfellows. If she’s good, she’ll get another chapter.
I was at a comic shop for Valentines day because that is what nerds do, and I found The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. The cover was fun, so I picked it up. The back promised cameos from the Marvel Universe of characters that I was familiar with. I was in a buying mood. I bought. And. I. Was. Not. Disappointed.
First, sometimes I have a love hate with comics because so many of them require you to have and have read the 89 to 500 issues that come before. The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl didn’t require such fore-study from me. It launched into a world where everyone was making up their own stories and so it didn’t matter that, as I found while reading, I was not actually starting at the beginning of the squirrel girl story.
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is smart, and in a world of superheroes, Squirrel Girl seems like a super girl who became super on her own. You know, like us regular Joes and Joanns dream of. Sure Squirrel Girl can talk to squirrel’s, but all her super rocking fighting comes from practice (again, just read volume 2, so if I am totally incorrect here I apologize). To top it all off, she has a friend and supporter who says totally librarian friendly stuff about the internet. And she says it with a ginormous monster in the background. Any comic who calls out the internet for being 85% misinformation and a bunch of mom tricks that don’t work is a forever favorite of mine.
