Matthew Kriske's "Magic Carp" Debuts

When Kriske told me he was working on an online comic, I thought, okay, this'll be fun, a little manga Kriske walking around in a cartoon version of his religious high school. Well, "Magic Carp" has officially debuted, and it's not what I was expecting -- in a good way!

Magic Carp is more art than cartoon, and in that vein, episode #1 is more like a sketchbook page than anything else. I look forward to seeing where this goes, and whether Kriske will succumb to having such ordinary things as characters or a narrative.

So good luck, Magic Carp! The champagne bottle is broken in your honor.

(Starting with next week's comic, you will see almost all the characters from the Welcome comic introduced.)

It might come across as pretentious, but I wanted to start the comic in a sort of non narrative story telling style.

But yeah, i'll exclusively reveal that next week's comic features Virginia Woolf and a Mustache man.

I feel honored to have been able to see that page in production, firsthand.
