Metapost: so lazy

Apologies for no new reviews this week. I’ve been busy wasting time, what with Lost premiering this week, me lurking on Lost communities, me inputting crackpot Lost theories on my wife’s Facebook, and generally being Lost. (Seriously, this is an issue. I think the same thing happened early last year when my wife and I plowed through the first four seasons on DVD in preparation for Season 5.)

(In related news, Joel of HijiNKS Ensue may need to detonate a nuclear warhead to put his mind at peace.)

(EDIT: And while we’re on the subject of Lost, Nedroid’s Spoiler-Free Lost Spoilers.)

Also, the Superbowl. So my mind’s been in several places at once. I will let you get a peek into my next three planned reviews, though, if you’d like to play along this February:

Also, once upon a time, El Santo was once in a collaborative storytelling circle, where you post three or four paragraphs and then another writer takes over. It went through a pretty good run until we got bogged down by our own mythology. (Though, now that I look back at it, it was not nearly as confusing as Lost.)

Well, the folks over at Witch’s Brew are trying the same thing, but with webcomics. I checked out a few panels, and frankly it’s badly drawn/copy-pasted and makes no goddamn sense… but it does look like everyone involved is having a lot of fun. And what more could you ask for? The Webcomic Overlook sorta hopes that this kind of thing catches on as a sort of fun past time.


About El Santo

Somehow ended up reading and reviewing almost 300 different webcomics. Life is funny, huh? Despite owning two masks, is not actually a luchador.

  1. The Witch’s Brew thing reminds me of which I only just came across recently. Impractical as a graphic novel but it DOES look like the artists are having fun experimenting…!
