Cartoon of the Week: Building on the Past






This week, Book Two of A Figure from the Common Lot began, changing the scene to Cookesville, Indiana, and the centennial year of 1876. Monday’s Inimical concluded Chapter 6, in which Doris gets inspired, and Greta tries initiative. Tuesday, a fresh installment of The Totem-Maker‘s Chapter One: “The Little I Can Tell”; Wednesday, a new flash fiction, “Free for All”.
Thursday’s Inimical episode contained Chapter 7, “Alarm-Posts and Signal-Posts”, in its entirety. So if you haven’t gone to the page, try it, and keep up with the story! “Are You Haunted” has finished its run, ending Powell Kenzie’s adventure. Next in the Friday slot comes “Are You Loveable”, a serio-comic novella set in 1928. Finally, Saturday’s post was the tenth episode of Pale Knight, “Poison in the Marrow”, with Trout coming off the worse, following his encounter with the apparition. (For your entertainment — FYE — the last two lines of “Poison” are taken from the old ballad, “Barbara Allen”
Photos on my posts usually have a link to related information (click first image), sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
