Time To Jump In!

A couple of web comics I'm reading are on a short break and will kick back into their respective stories next week. So I thought I'd urge those of you who aren't read to take advantage of the time to catch up on the stories.

Tozo, which I've mentioned here repeatedly, follows the adventures of the titular character, a police officer investigating the murder of Luco Lello. It's a a great story, and David O'Connell is executing it masterfully. He finished Chapter Two last week, and has posted a nice summary of the whole story before he begins on Chapter Three next week.

Also worth noting is Ramón Perez's Kukuburi, which I only discovered this past week. Perez describes it thusly...
Nadia’s daily routine as a delivery girl in the bustling Big City is disrupted one day when she passes through what seems like an ordinary white picket gate and into the Inbetween. Kukuburi follows her adventures as Nadia stumbles through this new world and tries to find her place within it. Populated by strange denizens from a child’s imagination there is excitement and danger lurking around every corner.

Perez's imagination seems like it's in a McCay-esque overdrive, but his story seems more deliberate and driven than any Little Nemo strip. He's got a great sense of color and, coupled with his smooth illustrations, make each page a joy to look at even if you're not following the story.

Perez took the month of August off, but he should be back with a new strip on Tuesday. While there are 94 pages of story so far, they read really quickly and smoothly, so it shouldn't take long at all to catch up.

Two great strips, well worth your time. I highly recommend adding both of their feeds to whatever you use to read online comics.
