I got really interested in sequential art this summer when I discovered some incredibly resourceful and well-done webcomics.
(You should check out my favorite, Blue Milk Special. In addition to appealing to my inner nerd, it is cleverly written and artfully illustrated. I also appreciate that it is created by a husband-and-wife team, which makes for a likable creative. Definitely worth a look-see: bluemilkspecial.com )
