A Brief Programming Note


I'm out of town conventioning for the next few days--navigating the Scylla and Charybdis of Big Pharma and the occasional protester--so my posts may be thinner.  By the end of the week, I expect to be back to my regular schedule.

For today, please enjoy this interesting bit of Bronze Age comic book cartography from Atlas Comics' Wulf the Barbarian #3 (1975):

Pick up some oxycontin for me would you?

Good luck, good hunting and return safely. Bet you get some good ideas for future posts while you're in the midst of such things...

@Paladin - Now, now--I am a substance abuse specialist. ;)

@NetherWerks - Thanks.

I love that kind of map. Although I get the utility of the hex-map, I don't find it aesthetically pleasing. But I used to draw maps like Wulf's all the time as kid--sketch out a coastline (make sure to have some islands and a large, inland sea), draw in some names, and there ya go.

Yeah, that's my preferred style of map as well. I don't really need continental hex maps.
