(This is TicToc, a mechanical bird at the court.)
In keeping with the spirit of steampunk week I'd like to make a plug for one of my favorite webcomics today. Tom Siddell is 24 chapters into a marvelous unraveling of his tale of the kids at Gunnerkrigg Court, which has a fascinating blend of the mechanical and mystical. As for the nature of the court and what the kids are doing there, I'll let you find out. It updates every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and I wait impatiently for each one. Make sure you block off a good chunk of time for reading....the story is intricate and many-layered, and the evolution of Tom's art over the course of the story is fabulous. Enjoy!
