Otaku Poem

Anime Poems

This family reunion of sorts,
costumed kin
in the thousands,
pours us upon unsuspecting cities
like a deluge of long-stoppered nerd-dom.

This wonderment uncorked
on these
metropolitan inns
manifests a family fostered on forums
and figured of passionate anime fans.

Urban avenues are rivulets for
our annual outlet of ardor,
our fanaticism and friendships,
family formed of the fandoms,
parading in rainbows of fantasy and fabric.

The Best of the Web: Webcomics

Webcomics

The Internet is the birthplace of innovation in our modern era and nowhere is this more true than in the cultural realm. Comics are no exception and have experienced exponential change and development since the first comics began to hit the Web. This article will focus on five of the best comics currently being produced. In Order:

5. Starslip, by Kris Straub – Starslip, previously Starslip Crisis, is a comic set in a far future where Earth is greatly changed (for example, Japan has left the planet and is now a planet of its own). Following the epic story of MemnonVanderbeam, formerly the curator of an art museum (set aboard a spaceship) and now the captain of the fleet’s greatest ship, we follow the crew on their quirky adventures. Vanderbeam is pretentious and snooty, yet lovable all the same. The art is a bit questionable, but the comic is still a top 5.
