Wapsi Square webcomic

I've been following the webcomic Wapsi Square off and on for awhile now, but in recent days, the strip's appearance has taken a very interesting turn. I don't mean the storylines, which seems to be mainly a creative interpretation of Aztec mythology (along with the mythologies of other ancient civilizations).

Because of WS's many plot twists, following its storylines takes having read the strip almost since the beginning, but this blog entry is not about that right now. Instead, what follows is the artwork from the strip, which I think is among the best out there in the usage of black and white art. Some of the artwork is simply stunning!

Compare the very first WS comic strip:

And contrast it with this most current strip:

Can you believe that it's the same artist? That bottom strip is simply gorgeous!

By the way, the woman on the left in the top strip is the same woman on the left in the bottom strip, just so you have an idea on how much the artwork has evolved. That main character's name, by the way, is Monica - who, as you might have guessed, is very busty. Even though she is short - about 5 foot 2 or less, I think - she looks as busty as I am! I found out about Wapsi Square from a friend of mine.

Anyway, I recommend the webcomic for its gorgeous art, which is why I am bringing it to your attention now.

I've seen better web comics; but that's my opinion.
