Smoke Wagon

I just thought I'd post a few of my favorites from Gary Panter's web comic strip, "Smoke Wagon". I love the strip (though it wasn't love at first sight; I found it a year ago, though it was just interesting, and only recently became a big fan) and it isn't updated nearly enough. The drawing style might be called "crude" by some (those poor, ignorant souls), but it captures the "feel" of his work. If you're familiar with Panter's stuff, you'd realize he's capable of tighter drawings, but I don't think that would fit this strip. It could be called an "acquired taste", but either way, it's great.

The above had some sort of effect on me. It might be my favorite. "timeless to the nth degree", I guess you'd call it.
