    Newsflash: re (some of) Kory’s pre-LSoS work. Though Brockport Chronicled is not available online, there are several strips that appeared in Reporter Magazine of the Rochester Institute of Technology. Several of them had been linked on TSOJ’s site, which is how I learned of them (and I trust I’m not the only one).

    But at some point in the past year, I discovered that the ‘toons had vanished when I tried to view them, the site having been revamped. So I tried the Wayback Machine, which didn’t help much, given that I could only retrieve a handful of the strips (the WM can be wonky when it comes to graphics).

    However, all is not lost, because a few days ago I discovered that there is now a separate site that houses the magazine’s older material — and, happily, that includes Kory’s cartoons. So, whether you have viewed these before and want to revisit them, or are coming to them for the first time, here’s where you go:

    “They’re two completely different – often opposite – things.”

    That they are, but most people are either unable or unwilling to perceive the distinction. The antisocial prey upon others for personal gain; the asocial just want to be left alone.

    Given that the present hiatus has no definite end in sight, I had hoped that perhaps Kory would run some of his earlier work in lieu of LSoS until it resumes. That was what Aaron Neathery had done while Endtown was on break, as those here who follow it already know. However, if you’ve read the L’Idea Magazine interview (thank you, Kzin), that’s not likely to happen any time soon, if at all, given that Kory doesn’t think that highly of his Brockport Chronicled, though he readily admits that good came of it.

    More recently, I came across a blog post by Rina Piccolo on the attitude of cartoonists (and artists of whatever stripe) toward their early efforts; I imagine that Kory would readily empathize with her take on the subject:

    Cringe-worthy Work

    I’ve often wondered why there is no zoom feature for the Sherpa comics. Or why several comics in the main section don’t have it either. Or why zooming is simply not available across the board.

    He’s wearing a hat, though it’s easy to see how it could be mistaken for his hair, given the way they seem to blend into each other.

    “Christmas Eve. It was the day when the delight of Christmas really took fire in the Stanton family. Hints and glimmerings and promises of special things, which had flashed in and out of life for weeks before, now suddenly blossomed into a constant glad expectancy. The house was full of wonderful baking smells from the kitchen, in a corner of which Gwen could be found putting the final touches to the icing of the Christmas cake. Her mother had made the cake three weeks before; the Christmas pudding, three months before that. Ageless, familiar Christmas music permeated the house whenever anyone turned on the radio. The television set was never turned on at all; it had become, for this season, an irrelevance. For Will, the day brought itself into natural focus very early. Straight after breakfast—an even more haphazard affair than usual—there was the double ritual of the Yule log and the Christmas tree.” —Susan Cooper, The Dark is Rising

    Probably one of the mice from Overboard.

    And yes, I always look forward to seeing a new ‘movie’ starring Poncho.

    That’s a question that children ask frequently, perhaps more than any other. It’s one that many adults don’t ask often enough, assuming that they have nothing more to learn because they’re All Grown Up.
