Blank It Presents: Something Completely Different

Visit the webcomic Blank It
Hey, y'all. Today I wanted to talk about something new that's happening with one of my favorite comics.

If you follow this blog at all, you know I'm a big fan of Blank It. Its witty wordplay, dynamic and freewheeling storytelling, and general absurdist awesomeness led me to review it and interview the creators in a comic. It's like Waiting for Godot: the Manga--except that doesn't sound nearly awesome enough.

Last Thursday's installment wrapped up the first major chapter in the BlankItverse; after two years and 204 comics of shovel beams, mysterious robots, and militant cookies, its two protagonists lie down to take a nap. So, what's next? Artist Lem Pew writes:
Aric and I are going to take...a month or so to recoup and get a little break. ...[We] are still going to update the site every Monday and Thursday with a comic, but it’s going to be a totally different tale.

If you haven't read through Blank It yet, this is a great time to get caught up and--if you like what you see--to start tuning in regularly.

This blog is all about sharing good comics, and Blank It is a good comic. I highly recommend it, and I'm looking forward to seeing what further tricks Lemmo and Aric have up their sleeves.

I'm a huge fan of this comic, too. If I know someone who is into web comics, or good stories, I hand them my own laptop to make sure they read at least the first few comics. Lately, I'd lose my laptop for a half-hour to an hour, due to the number of strips accumulated.

Got my husband on board early on (I started watching around the third comic), I've nagged my brother on-and-off (I'm his older sister; it's my prerogative, neh?), and I got my dad to start reading this past Christmas.

If I want a real challenge, I could attempt my grandparents. They had The Twilight Zone, so this can't be too much of a stretch for them. ^_^
