The Reason

February 12, 2015

I’ve tweeted about The Last Halloween a few times before, it’s a weekly webcomic by Abby Howard (of Strip Search fame) about… the end of world? The beginning of a new one? Lots of badass monsters devouring and dismembering their humans? It’s good, really good, and the illustration is stellar.

It’s well worth reading, and if you want to start now you have 62 issues to tuck into but if you’re not sure just have a look at this week’s. It. Is. Beautiful.

The detail, linework, shading, creature design, it’s all just a delight, and a delight throughout the series but this is a tour de force. As you’re jumping in media res there are spoiler considerations but I think if anything this will just want you to go back to the beginning and read from the start.


Junior Science Power Hour is also worth following (in case you hadn’t guessed I’m an Abby Howard fan, I have two signed prints! :D )

(Post) Apocalypse How (To)

A ridiculously comprehensive answer to the question, “If you became the last person on Earth, what would you do?

From what I can tell the most important things to have are:

  • Propane (the post-apocalyptic fuel of choice)
  • A Weed-whacker (for both horticulture and boating)
  • A  gun

Let’s be honest, if you knew you were the last person alive you’d probably forgo the propane and weed-whacker.
