Looks like Criminy's got some magical, morphomatic books there. Good reading material though. Good to see he's brushing up on his ancestors (C&H).

As for the art in this comic... holy crap you're getting good Tat. Don't think I've seen any yet with this much style.

Awwww! Tat! Total book <3! Leaves of grass! The Odyssey! Emily Dickinson!

And it's like you grouped the books by subject too. Philosophical in the first panel, "Your own little world" in the 9th, and "the sky is falling" political in the 10th.

*mwah!*

Tat needs to go on a 5 year soujourn of knocking up a bunch of ladies just so people in future generations get to see genius at work. Very Happy

Nuh-uh. The lake is real. It comes and goes with camera position and angle. The fanboy falling in the water is real and just happened to coincide with the fall in the story crim was reading. 'Member the previous day's strip?

Do I have to explain everything to you people? Smile

Awesome strip. Good, funny stuff.

Best color comic so far. And we can clearly see some of Tat's favorites in there, like a collection of Pogo comics.

"Oh noooes"

can we expect crim going all holden and rebellious after he finishes reading catcher in the rye? then again, he may be already desensitized by all the deviance and debauchery his present companions that the book will do him nothing. it'd be interesting to see a crim-devil storyarc, though.

I love the story of Icarus my dad used to tell it to me when I was little. Shows respect for the elders in story telling.

I never found catcher in the rye to be that exicting or thought provoking. Nah,Tat, a good rebellion inducing book would be something by like Stirner, Kafka, Plathe, Camus, or the The little Mermaid. ::shudder::

At any rate, cool comic. Very Happy The details on Mr. Sun were amazing.

Although now that I think about it, how the hell did seymour's wings MELT in the middle of flight? Greek writers were poor scientists indeed. Sad

The wings were held together with wax, the sun is hot, and heat melts wax.
