Logic and Science



The sad thing is that you can find people who reason that way.

If you don't at least occasionally read the Girl Genius webcomic, you are missing out on some great panels. If you've never read it at all, of course, you should start at the beginning sometime when you have a few hours free.

Phoenix Requiem is another good story-arc webcomic, too; it has a sort of fantasy alternative-Victorian feel to it. (It's also a bit shorter, and its story arc is completed, and not extending apparently into infinity like Girl Genius with its ten-thousand-member ensemble cast.) Precocious is another one; it handles the long-arc problem by breaking things up into smaller stories. But all these are long-time survivors; I don't know of any good recently new ones.

  1. I think you may be who got me into Girl Genius, which I've been enjoying immensely. Another friend recently suggested Sinfest (http://www.sinfest.net/index.php) which is less novelistic, but still has extended storylines. More Doonesbury like in structure, perhaps. Fascinating to read it from the beginning and see how Ishida's interests and focus have changed (and talents have honed).

  2. I'll definitely have to dip into it and see what it's like.
