Feed your webcomic addiction.

I’m over at SFSignal this morning with a Mind Meld on “What webcomics should I be reading *right now*”? I love doing roundtables like this because I get to ask a bunch of experts about something that I don’t know very much about. Come on over and check it out!
It’s been a bit of a few days, so I only had time to look at a few of the links. One that I did click, however, was Prospect Park Dusk, Prospect Park Dawn by Mike Dawson, recommended by Carrie Cuinn.
Why you should click on it too:
1. it’s very short. Like one chapter. you can read the entire thing in 10 minutes, although I guarantee you you’ll go back to read it again.
2. it’s sort of about vampires, but mostly not. and by “mostly not”, I mean I was a blubbering ball of crying by the time I got to the end of it.
3. I don’t usually care about gender stuff, but it was nice to read a webcomic where the main character is a modern woman who deals with modern ladystuff – childcare issues, marital issues, dreaded “Mom’s group”, anxiety about being a good parent and what happens when their toddler grows up.
4. well, Shit. Is that entire story just a giant metaphor for parental anxiety that no one wants to talk about? well . . . goddamn.
