The World's Greatest Meg: Totalitarian Edition


Last Meg for a while. Gotta get back aboard ship.

I just discovered a friend of mine also has a webcomic over at Contains Traces Of. Head over there and check it out, and see if you too can figure out the significance of the title! It's quite satisfying.

Another installment in the life of the World's Greatest Meg. This is getting rave reviews from people at work who know who Meg is, but hopefully the rest of you are getting some enjoyment out of these as well.

Disunion



Working title: How to work as many references to the American Civil War as possible as vaguely as possible.

The World's Greatest Meg

So by way of explanation of this, I work with a very wonderful lady named Meg who has a very interesting point of view on things. So long story short, I started quickly illustrating some of the things she said, cause why not?

I might interject these occasionally because there isn't anyone out there who couldn't benefit from knowing Meg. Back to the Bounty tomorrow.

Great Capstans in History 3

Too... tired... to comic... so it's time for another installment of Great Capstans in History!

This next one isn't so much... from history per se... It perhaps isn't even a capstan per se, but it's close enough.


Conan's Wheel of Pain (tm) wasn't conceived with any purpose in mind other than being a "giant mean thing" and they kind of made it a mill, but screw that - it's obviously a capstan. Just rather than weighing anchors and hauling cables, it's weighing THE WORTH OF A MAN. And I assume, from what I remember from the picture, it also laminates women. Conan likes shiny women.

You'd have to be pretty nerdly to get the reference in the last panel.

The continuing saga of the title header continues. Still looking for a font I'm happy with, but I've dropped the "words that start with M" motif. There's already certain constraints put on this strip by it's nature, and I didn't think adding another contributed anything.

This comic inspired by this article about the possibility that scientists have discovered life on Titan. It's a slim possibility, sure but still.

Great Capstans in History 2

Well, since the internet decided to eat my last comic, and while I try to straighten that out, here's another installment of Great Capstans in History!!!


This guy was once a proud and shiny capstan on the finest ship in the world; the Titanic! That is until, as I understand things, Leonardo DiCaprio and the guy from My Left Foot in a mustache sank the ship or whatever. Now where a working capstan once stood we see just pile of rusticles and hiding places for delicious neon fish. Weak.
My wife named this one. Credit where it's due. :)

Great Capstans in History

Part one in a gripping new series profiling some famous, some not-so famous and (dare I type?) infamous capstans throughout history.

Going with the theme, I thought we should start with the capstan of the Bounty (not to be confused with the CAPTAIN of the Bounty). This is not, regrettably, the capstan of the original HMAV Bounty, but the recreation. Nevertheless it is still quite a fetching capstan and I'm sure Lieutenant Bligh would approve.

If you have some capstan photos or know of a capstan that deserves to be profiled, send it along and you might see your capstan in a future installment!

Join the crew! (ugh) on facebook in the On the Bounty facebook page!

In other history comic news, Frank Miller is doing a prequel to 300. Fans disappointed it isn't called 299.


I really am intending to update this every day, but don't tell anybody.

For those of you in the New Haven, CT area, there's some comics related shindig brewing for June 20th. We just don't know quite what yet. Save the date!

Also, yes I'm changing dialog fonts each comic. This will only continue until I find a font that doesn't look crappy - I'm trying to relearn all my webcomics/photoshop stuff.
R.I.P, Dennis Hopper. R.I.P. indeed.
