My forumers have pointed me in the direction of a really cool webcomic... Lackadaisy! The mix of real-world history with animal characters reminds me more than a bit of Don Rosa's work, although the art and writing themselves are not especially similar to his. The visuals are incredibly lush and expressive, and feature the kind of strong posing that you tend to get more often from animators than comic artists. And the story -- a 1920s prohibition romp told with, uh, cats -- is equally enjoyable.
As many of you know, my BA is in American history, and I am basically a huge nerd for comics that manage to touch on the subject without losing their pure entertainment value. Lackadaisy is one of those comics. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
In other news, I have been really actually responding to my emails for three whole days now! Can I make it to four? CAN I?
