Megatokyo

I just finished volume one of Megatokyo.

I really enjoyed it. Even if you've read the web comic - even if you have and don't care for it, it's still an interesting read. Fred Gallagher, the artist behind the work, spends a bunch of whitespace (since the web format started out square and the book is 2:3 aspect ratio) explaining the evolution of the story, the characters, his skillset and methods. Really very cool.

It's really need to see the evolution from this:

to this:

or this:
http://www.megatokyo.com/index.php?strip_id=884

Anyhow, I recommend it!
