This Bright Future

:: Posted by BK @ 9/16/2009 10:20:00 AM
Gareth Lind has announced he is reviving the characters from his well-regarded Weltschmerz comic strip, which he discontinued two years ago [edit: one year ago! oops.].

The strip was a regular in several weekly Canadian papers. In aletter, Lind details the new feature his characters will inhabit:

Dear former Weltschmerz readers,

I have started a new comic strip called This Bright Future, appearing every week at The Canadian Charger. Think of it as distilled Weltschmerz. Tighter. Sharper. And I hope just as funny.

Horst and his friends return -- Frank, Cosmo, Raj, Donya and even maybe Celia. But the strip will be more focused on current affairs, less on personal foibles. Not surprisingly, Stephen Harper has put in an appearance more often than any of the above.

You can find This Bright Future on the front page of The Canadian Charger, a web magazine aiming to expand the range of discourse in our corporate-dominated media. The first panel of this week's cartoon is attached below. (There are a number of seed comics to check out as well.)

If enough readers request it, this new strip could appear on local newsprint (hint intended).

Please visit the Charger Thursdays to for your satire fix. You can become a fan at the TBF Facebook page. And please spread the word.

Thanks for reading,

Gareth

Thanks for the post, Bryan. But it was one year ago that Weltschmerz ended.
