Ohmigosh ... SO cool! A 1984 comic!

Thanks to Meljean Brook (who has a great new book out, Demon Angel) for this awesome link to a comic based on George Orwell's 1984!

For some reason, the actual webcomic doesn't work me and my browser, but here's the 1984 webcomic.

Here's a video of Chapter One set to Pink Floyd's the Wall. Here's a video of Chapter Two. The music is PERFECT for it! What a great project!

That is an incredible image isn't it, I love it! Looks like excellent art work. I saw the movie once and it so frightened me I don't think I'll ever watch it again. Orwell was so ahead of his time...I loved the book too.

I've heard that it doesn't work in IE, but is okay in Firefox.

1984 as a comic. Interesting.

BTW, I asked the retreat coordinator to room us together if possible because you're so motivating for me! Hope you don't mind?

You're right, it's one heck of a book, Candy!

I need to try Firefox, then, because the video goes by so quickly that I can't read everything. I do love the music, though!

So cool, Starvingwritenow! Except I had to laugh. Me? Inspiring? I'd love to room with you, though! I'm so glad you're going!
