New Comics from Jon Rosenberg
I don’t know how many of you guys have read Jonathan Rosenberg’s work in the past, but if you haven’t, you should.* For 13 years he has done the webcomic Goats, which has become a cult classic amongst its fans. The story kept growing and growing, starting with some slackers at a bar and now taking place amongst multiple universes with 13 years of back story.
Now Goats is a great comic with T-Shirts and books for sale, but Jon realized something recently: It wasn’t going to turn out like he planned. Goats as a property was never going to get to the levels of stability and income he needed, and he needed a new project. You can read a good interview with Jon and all that juiciness here. As of Monday, that project has launched.
It’s called Scenes from the Multiverse, and it’s a bunch of one-off strip-style comics taking place amongst amoebae, odd aliens, and tongue-like things. By design it’s quick to jump into, and you can tell by reading Rosenberg is having a lot of fun with the change of pace.
So go check it out and show your support. Tell him Rosscott sent you.
Side note: I’m honored to say that when I met Jon (briefly at Webcomics Weekend last year and again at SPX) he actually had read The System. It’s always great to hear someone whom you respect respects you right back.
