This comic by Jeph Jacques is a near daily update. Weekdays only. It covers some tough topics with a bright sense of humor. A snarky and sarcastic vibe. I love that the characters all feel so real. He has given them flaws and personality. In the course of it’s run so far you can see growth in the main characters.
Reading this comic I have several times wanted to be in this world. I think that is the sign of a well written environment… The idea that the reader would want to climb into it and stay.
It’s been a while since I have done this, so I thought that it was time to talk about a new comic. Eventually I plan on covering all of my favorite ones. Last time I talked about Dominic Deegan. Today, I want to talk about a relatively new comic. She has been posting for a couple of years. Geekasaurus is an adorably geeky family of dinosaurs. A fun sense of humor and a very wholesome family feel to it.
The artwork is cute. The writing is inspired. I highly recommend reading through the past comics.
Ok… This is a segment that I have been considering. I used to follow hundreds of webcomics. I have gotten behind due to the small screen I am most often working with. It makes checking the pages more difficult. Add in chaos… And I am far behind. I want to change that.
Some of my favorite comics have ended. And I have been needing to update the links. I follow quite a few comic creators on social media. I find them to be fairly interesting people. Well one of my absolute favorite comics is being continued again.
The artist moved on to another comic. He has grown since the first part of his comic. I used to check in daily. He is still one of my favorite creators. His stories are amazing.
I asked if he was only going to update past the summer. He said that he intends to continue on until further notice. I am so excited! He is doing a m/w/f update schedule. His current continuation is called The Legacy of Dominic Deegan. Help me show him that his work is truly appreciated.
I always have a wide variety of choices for music to pick from. My music tastes literally run from classical to heavy metal and everything in between. That being said… I am only chosing one per week to discuss. This week I am choosing a cover song. I admit that I never heard the original. I dunno if I would like it as much. I am a big Supernatural fan. It is what got me listening to the song to start with.
Ramblers in the wilderness we can’t find what we need
We get a little restless from the searching
Get a little worn down in between
Like a bull chasing the matador is the man left to his own schemes
Everybody needs someone beside em’ shining like a lighthouse from the sea
Brother, let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother, let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Face down in the desert now there’s a cage locked around my heart
I found a way to drop the keys where my failures were
Now my hands can’t reach that far
I ain’t made for a rivalry I could never take the world alone
I know that in my weakness I am strong, but
It’s your love that brings me home
My two cents :
Not all family is blood. Not everyone has blood family that they are close to. I have a decent, albeit somewhat distant, relationship with my own sibling. The distant is a physical thing. We chose homes in states hours from each other. So I miss him. To me this song talks about the type of relationship that you never need to question. I have had very few of this type in my life. I can count on one hand how many. Jensen really has an amazing voice and he sings this with so much emotion. Even if you have never seen the show the video will feel like you are seeing family.
National poetry month has seen my blog updated every day… And it is not going to happen again for a bit. I am considering Sketch September and I am likely to do Inktober. I have been doing the P. A. D. Thing… But I have been struggling with the prompts from the offical website. Some prompts don’t click till later. So I will save them for when I can use them. I have tried to post some of my poems on Instagram and Facebook. A few here as well.
I will be returning to my usual update schedule, I hope that you will enjoy the content.
