Rereading Octopus Pie

Some webcomics I’m struck by how much a reread of a long stretch of archives — entire stories at a gulp — can change my perception of the project. Octopus Pie is one of those — I always liked it but I am not sure I got all of the characters the first read through. ¬†And then of course, it is much more reliant on story than it initially appeared to me the first time around. ¬†Meredeth Gran still chucks out four panel gags with the best of them but in Octopus Pie she is/was reaching for something more character-driven from the very start.

And such great artwork — a fully cartoony style but yet full of personality and soul.
