Cartoon of the Week: Buzz Word






This week, in A Figure from the Common Lot: Peas in a Pod (part five), Richard has a serious fight with Lawrence, and ends up feeling he bears the weight of the world alone. Monday, The Totem-Maker, “Jealousy” continued, the character witnessing Mumas’s humiliation in the house of Lord Sente; Tuesday, the short story “Are You Adaptable” had its second episode, with the introduction of Stenner, and the start of his graveyard story. Wednesday, a refurbished rerun, Hammersmith, “All Safe Bets Off”, wherein Vic horns in on Aimee’s Philadelphia scheme. 
Thursday, the weekly addition to Jean Hess’s La Catastrophe de la Martinique: this time Hess begins his decription of seeing first-hand the volcano’s devastation. Friday, the fourteenth chapter of Hammersmith, “Want Nothing Will Write”, has Aimee and Hogben setting off, and Vic, by coincidence, joining them in their carriage. Saturday, The Folly takes up again, with “Lonely in Its Reckoning”, Atherleigh’s Agnes the narrating ghost.
Images 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.
