Go, Read: Noah Van Sciver's Sketchbook Comic About Traveling Back In Time To Mid-1990s Seattle

The cartoonist Noah Van Sciver started posting the following comic page by page to his Facebook page about a month ago or so. I thought it was funny and the Seattle setting was close enough to my heart -- I would arrive on the scene about six months after the period depicted here -- that I inquired about putting it up on my site on December 16. Mr. Van Sciver complied. I like the comic quite a bit. Page twelve may be the funniest scene in any comic featuring Gary Groth, and Groth has been depicted by some all-time cartooning talent.

In addition to exploring the site linked-to through his name in the first sentence of this introduction, you should try Noah's very fine comic from Fantagraphics, The Hypo.
