Rilly's really spiffy new site

My favourite Canadian cartoonist/policy analyst Ethan Rilly, has just unveiled a new website, Popehats.ca. Built using only "fimo and a buck knife" (it actually looks kind of pretty) the site exists primarily to promote his fine new comic Pope Hats #1 (which was nominated for a Doug Wright Award in it's earlier, self-published incarnation).

I really liked that earlier version, and I'm happy to see that he has re-drawn it and re-published it in a spiffy new format. As Seth has already commented, the story is breezy and deceptively casual in its depiction of real life. Plus there's a charming ghost in it.

If you like Dan Clowes, Seth, Adrain Tomine (or good comics) you should put $4 aside and buy a copy for yourself.
