Oyster pirates fight a supernatural battle for shellfish, Hergé-style

There's more to Ben Towle's freshly Eisner-nominated webcomic Oyster War than its visual homage to Hergé.

Is this Tintin's final, xenomorphic adventure?

Dan Hipp of The Amazing Joy Buzzards has drafted this awesome fake cover to one of Tintin's never-was adventures. It looks like he's in for a rough time, but hey, he's been to R'lyeh and Innsmouth. He'll come up aces. » 4/13/11 7:30am 4/13/11 7:30am
