Well I don’t have a joke about why I’ve been away for so long. That’s because there is nothing funny about Canadian Maple Syrup Torture. Let’s just say it was a sticky situation and be done with it.
I don’t normally like to announce comics hitting certain landmarks because if you start proclaiming it every time some one hits 100, they’ll expect it again when they hit 200 and by then I just don’t care. But today I’m going to make an exception for Commissioned today because e I think 1000 is a big enough number that by the time creator Obsidian reaches 2000 I’ll care again.
And it’s not just the sheer number of strips that makes this notable, these are full color, usually multi-panel works of art that are in my opinion, a whole lot of fun. Almost everyday I’m amazed that Obsidian can crank out a comic like this on a daily basis.
One thing that I’ve never understood is how unknown this strip is. Most people I talk to have never heard of it. If you find yourself in this unfortunate category, Now is a great time to head on over. With the exception of Fantasy Mondays which follow an adventure that’s been going on for a while now, there’s not much back story to worry about and the site is sporting a new lay-out that’s looking pretty snazzy.
Go, get reading, you have 1000 strips to catch up on.
