I mentioned Lackadaisy a while ago, and have had a link to it on the right since then.

The webcomic's brilliant author, Tracy Butler, recently made a beautiful piece of art for an upcoming Lackadaisy book:

Sadly, that book is only being printed in Italy. Hopefully it will get picked up here at some point, because it's the kind of thing I'd love to have on my shelf. The artwork is always gorgeous, with incredibly expressive character work, and the story is a superbly crafted epic set in prohibition-era St. Louis. Also, the people are cat people which always gets me.

If you need a break from the typical three panel webcomic, do yourself a favor and read this one. The only downside is eagerly awaiting the next installment.
