Non-stop disco, bet you it's Nabisco, bet you didn't know
Kristofer Straub has launched a brand-new webcomic this week called Starshift Crisis, and I am expecting great things. Straub's other comic, Checkerboard Nightmare, is criminally under-read; not because it doesn't have a decent-sized following, but because it deserves to have one the size of Florida. I suppose the subject matter does limit the audience somewhat. But I don't think that will be the case with Crisis. It's got a great look and a killer premise, and I'm really looking forward to seeing where he goes with it.
In related news, it looks like Straub and a few other Keenspot ex-pats have formed a new webcomic group called Blank Label Comics. Now, I realize these sorts of independent webcomic groups are all over the place these days -- heck, I'm part of one myself -- but don't write them off as another me-too operation. These six guys are seriously talented and their comics are definitely worth your time.
