Having to scroll right is like having to turn one's head to see the whole landscape. That's something I don't think you could do in a printed work. Again I'm happy to see how you're finding ways to bind the form and content into a seamless whole. The words also read like a manifesto for the whole project.

I had an odd experience with this TMFoM: the page got stuck loading the image with just a third of the green strip showing. I'd glanced at ex's comment suggesting flowing script before, but scrolled to the end of the image and back again twice not seeing any text at all. I backed out to the comments, then back to the image again where this time everything loaded fine. I'm sorry to say the first time through was quite the better one.

Ex, when you say "Kabuki", do you mean the David Mack comic? The Alchemy -- the latest chapter -- is one beautiful, beautiful comic book. Really takes the medium in a new and different direction. I only stopped buying it because its publishing schedule got erratic and the story just failed to go anywhere I could understand (I know nothing about Mack's previous work, so the Kabuki universe is totally opaque to me).

The Alchemy really infected me with its tone. I had an idea for a comic -- certain to come to nothing, because while I'm good at beginnings and endings, the whole middle bit always eludes me and I can't get off my ass to do the work -- and The Alchemy ended up being all over it. It's hard, while you're reading it, to imagine anything but that style.

Speaking more directly to the MFoM installment: This one reminded me of a song a friend of mine pointed me toward a few days ago (apparently he did some arranging and performing on the CD). There's a great line in the online snippet: "All may not be lost/But none of it is here".
