Say, have you met Lydia?

I'd meant to mention this earlier, so you may already know Kevin Church apparently needs no sleep and has launched a new webcomic called Lydia.

The strip is a spin-off of The Rack (which Church does with artist Benjamin Birdie) and features the new adventures of former comic book store employee Lydia Park as she charts her way through the corporate wasteland. It's already establishing a vibe distinct from The Rack, in both the writing and the work from artist Max Riffner. Riffner's art is classically cartoony and subtly modern, with a rounded gentleness that helps Church's already sharp satire sting even more when it hits.

Best of all, the strip is pretty funny.

So what are you waiting for? Go read it, and tell your friends about Lydia!

Darn it -- Thanks to you, I now have "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" stuck in my head.

At least it's being sung by Kermit and not Groucho. ;-)

I'm just glad someone got it! (By the way, I hear you can learn a lot from Lydia.)

She went off and married an admiral of the fleet, didn't she? That Lydia, what a gal!

The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat!
