Sorry about the absence. I hope to be back by September 15 October 6, with a full explanation. Or, at least, a decent excuse.
Review by Willow E. Taylor (creator of Stupidity in Magic): So out of the blue yesterday, this kind gentleman writes me and asks about a link exchange.
I'd never heard of his comic, and that's saying alot. It turns out, it wasn't a comic, it's the continueing story of two misfits, who proceed to become more and more misfit like as the story unfolds.
I didn't get much done yesterday afternoon, I was busy reading it, one chapter at a time.
I'm hooked. It has a good plot, decent concept, and I think the romance between Banny and Lissa is one of the sweetest things I've seen recently. Go forth and read, people, go forth and read.

Stupidity in Magic: "Welcome to The Institute for Magical Focus.
The people here are much like anyone else you've ever met-with one big exception. Everyone here accepts that magic exists. The only question is how it works.
Unfortunately, it frequently works much better than is safe for some people.
Because people are stupid- why should magic change that?"
A fun, funny, hip comic, written and drawn by Willow E. Taylor, who is obviously experienced in various forms of magic, popular culture, role-playing games, computers, and in the risks of stupidity in magic. In other words, everything important.
And be sure to read the notes below the strip.

Zortic: Aliens, movie and tv parodies, a spaceship won on a game show, and a gratuitious Smurf reference. Mark Mekkes's comic strip has all that, and plenty of humor, heart, and a purple woman co-pilot named Zoie. And purple's my favorite color!
Priceless - "A collection of life's priceless moments, caught on film." Definitely, absolutely, positively not for children. But very funny!!
Ask Zeus! - Have a question? Don't trust earthly wisdom. Mortals make mistakes. Get your answers from the King of the Gods Himself. Omnipotence is cool!

explains to us in his airy way the mistakes of Nietzsche,
Heidegger, Saussure, Chomsky, even Lacan (though Foucault is, like
Shaviro, pretty much infallible) while citing as authorities
various comic books and science fiction authors - as well, of
course, as Burroughs and his cinematic interpreter, David
Cronenberg." --James Bowman, The Public Interest, Summer
