This post is something of a follow-up to my thoughts on guest strips – namely, I noticed that Paul Southworth of Ugly Hill fame is doing “Tales by Tavernlight” – an old strip by Scott Kurtz that still occasionally pops up in PvP.
I think that this is supremely awesome.
First off, from the sample strip given thus far (on the right), Paul’s art style is frickin’ perfect for the job.
Secondly… I’m just a fan of this sort of interaction in webcomics. Artists are often more than willing to let others play around with their characters, and I think that is fantastic.
So hey. I haven’t picked up any of the PvP print issues… mainly ’cause I’m lazy more than anything. But I may well take a look at the upcoming issue with this stuff, and see how well it works. It certainly looks good, and I can’t imagination the brainchild of those two guys failing to impress me.
