Cartoon ghouls and demons meet new king

Cartoon of the Week: Far Afield






On Sunday, the Pale Knight arc of The Folly began its reissue, with “Virginia Keltenham”, an author currently renting the Folly while the others have cleared out. The guest soon finds himself summoned back. Monday, another poem, “The Hillside”; Tuesday, Sequence of Events, with Rob Healy surprised by a caller, and Rose Durco by the confirmation of a suspicion. Wednesday, the fourth Lab-Grown Brain, “The Lab-Grown Brain Makes Philosophy”, a prose poem in which the brain’s talent for amalgamation gains another notch. Thursday’s La Catastrophe de la Martinique offers some weather statistics, and a survivor’s story of luck. Friday, a poem, “From Superstition the Pendulum”; Saturday, a fresh episode of The Totem-Maker, the character winning a match and losing a point.
Images on my posts often 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.
