What We’re Reading: Hinges

HingesHinges is a fairly new webcomic by Meredith McClaren about a girl who wakes in a strange world of marionettes. The art flows smoothly between an angular cut-out style and a looser shaded ink style, both lovely and atmospheric. The mystery of the world, the doll-people that inhabit it, and their adorable animal-like familiars promises to unfold in a quiet and atmospheric way.

What We’re Reading: Sabertooth Vampire

Mike Russell chronicles the hilariously tragic slightly strange adventures of the elusive, unfortunate, and often befuddled Sabertooth Vampire. Melanie and I were first introduced to the Sabertooth Vampire as the closing act of Comics Underground, the dialogue-less strips set to music, and we were immediately hooked.

The comic is archived on his blog or available for sale at http://culturepulp.bigcartel.com/ — the zine editions are lovely  (rounded corners! crisp blacks! impeccable timing!), easy to browse, and come highly recommended.
