Here at Culture War Reporters, we talk about comics.
Today we’ll be doing it again.
Part of this is due to the fact that as the weeks go by, I find myself struggling harder and harder to point to anything worth applauding, cynic that I am.
Another part of this is due to the fact that my alternative topic for this week is the upcoming annual Socialism Conference, hosted by the ISO. While I think their eloquent and accessible presentation of alternatives to the psychotic system we live in is well worth a Fame Day showcasing, I seriously doubt my co-editor would be cool with me essentially hawking my own political views on our blog.
Of course, the third and biggest part of all this is the simple fact that Loading Artist is a really, really good webcomic.
And that’s all there really is to it.
There’s no particular social commentary. There’s no revolutionary ideology behind it, no mind-blowing philosophy. It’s just a good comic a lot of people don’t know about. And we’re not talking about a professional artist here, Gregor Czaykowski (the creator) works a day job and does Loading Artist… well, simply because.
You gotta appreciate that.
Here’s a guy who does a comic- a good comic- simply for the joy of doing it (though I’m sure donations wouldn’t go unappreciated). Let’s all simply take a moment to peruse some of his work and throw the guy some much deserved applause.
Loading Artist, keep up the good work.
And there you have it, folks; go read ’em.
Updates (Most) Mondays
I really wouldn’t’ve minded a Fame Day post on the ISO Socialism Conference.
