Jason - Kill the Cat [PNG]

Some of us have been talking about this for a while, and I've decided to take the first step in adding comics sharing posts to this blog. To kick this thing off, I'm posting a short story by Norwegian indie comics darling Jason called Kill the Cat which I scanned myself from the collection Pocket Full of Rain. As it's only 3 pages long, I hope you wont mind that I've just posted them directly on the blog.



I guess what I'd like to know is what sort of comics you'd like to see? I've been thinking of putting up The New Adventures of Hitler, but I've never been able to find a good enough scan. Does anyone here have a strong opinion on Shintaro Kago? I like him, but his stuff can be ultra-disturbing, plus it already gets posted around blogs quite a bit...

Preferred formats would also be good to know. Do you guys like the CBZ/CBR format? PDF? Just zipped or rarred image files? Do you want lossy JPGs or lossless PNGs? Both?

For those of you who really love the music aspects of the blog, have no fear! Most of us will continue to post music instead of comics, just not me, nostalghia, naguine or Lazzarus.

  1. Shintaro Kago + NAoH + pdf = win!

  2. This is great! Personally, I'm partial to the CBZ/CBR format (containing high quality images of course). Then my comic reader program can read it just fine, and if someone wants to just have the images themselves (useful for potentially reading on the iPad), then they can just unzip/unrar it.

  5. Jason's rad. I had never heard of The New Adventures of Hitler, but I did find a scan of part six forward to I don't know which part, and it's pretty funny thus far. People singing in closets, Hitler likes cake, etc.

  8. Double April Fools. Response to comics has been good enough that it will likely go ahead anyway. :D

  11. We only post hipster music so I don't see why the comics should be any different
