Metapost: “My name is Slylock Fox. I’m a detective.”
I’ve been trying to think of a 4th of July tie-in, but hell, just here it is: Reynard Noir, a blog by a faithful reader that, in his words, treats Slylock Fox “like it was an Orson Wells movie starring Humphrey Bogart and Jimmy Cagney, written by Frank Miller.” Start with this excellent introduction, then find out how Max Mouse finally solved a case and why Slylock doesn’t mind vultures. Simply brilliant!
Also, many of you have seen this in the comments, but you should check out Old Bean’s reinterpretation of the Shannon saga, “Shannon takes a stand.”
