Here’s a new webcomic with a nice ligne claire style and a classical story: The Most Favoured by the Gods, by Chris Brawn, is based on the play Oedipus, by the Greek dramatist Sophocles. Brawn says he intends the comic to be accessible to people who haven’t read the original, and so far it looks pretty clear. He plans to update twice a week for 12 weeks.
As a side note, this is the first time I have seen Tumblr used to host a webcomic. I suppose it has the advantage of being quick and simple for the creator, but the disadvantage is that the reader has to go down to the first episode and scroll up, clicking back and forth to see the pages at full size. I think the medium is better served by the more traditional format of embedding the comic in a web page with “previous” and “next” buttons. Don’t let that stop you from reading this comic, though, as there aren’t too many episodes up yet and it’s a nice, smooth read.
