ANDREW’S LINKS: One Last Ride on the Wall of Death
It’s not often that I get to make a simultaneous Richard Thompson/Timothy Truman reference, so I’ll take it this time.
This will be my last set of links for ComicMix. I’ve loved doing it, but it’s just too, too time-consuming. I will continue reviewing various things here, and ComicMix’s philosophy is all about the original content, so a huge bunch of outside links was an odd fit to begin with. Thanks for all the comments, and please stick around for the big ComicMix original-comics launch – I certainly will be!
