Crowbar Benson, Snowflakes

This week's post will go up later this evening or early Saturday, but in the meantime, why not check out at least one of these comics I've come across?

Crowbar Benson: a hockey-fanatic dad with a disregard for personal safety raises his two hyperactive sons. Juvenile humor and slapstick. Content-wise, pretty much what you'd see in the newspapers, but with the occasional F-bomb. Experiments with B&W and color.

Snowflakes: set at an orphanage in the Andes, where every kid dreams of getting adopted and competition is heated. Clever writing, colorful art, and a funny picture of cliques and children's social dynamics. All-ages appropriate.

Visit the sites, scope 'em out, enjoy. The week-in-review will be up soon, so be sure to check back.

Hey, thanks for the mention! Your description of Crowbar Benson is pretty much bang on, and you'll be happy to hear he's survived the Montreal Canadiens getting eliminated from the playoffs (he drinks to forget).
Thanks again!
