Today must be my day to recommend good cartooning. I had some spare time this morning to catch up on some reading, and it’s put me in the mood to share great work you may not have seen.

Created weekly by my very good friend Brad Guigar, each installment of “Phables” is a wonderfullly drawn and intimately told tale of Philadelphia, with expansive, beautiful linework and heartwarming tales that earned it a nomination for cartooning’s Eisner Award. I’ve never lived in Philly, myself, and I love it. I know you will, too.
