“Lay down all hope, you that go in by me”

Dante Alighieri (110/365)

What would classic novels be called if they were written for today’s market?

Then: The Gospel of Matthew
Now:  40 Days and a
Mule: How One Man Quit His Job and Became the Boss

I’ve just finished Dante’s Descent into Dummy Loan Felonies —With a Detour for Minimum
Security Prison
— and Amazing Redemption as an
Ethical Financial Advisor in preparation for the video game version. I don’t remember the poet being so badass.

The Spiders is an online comic by Patrick Farley based in an alternate universe where the Afghan War was fought using mind-altering drugs and robotic technology. At first it seems like the usual war-time nonsense but as you get deeper in it raises some thought provoking points. The first three and a half parts have been finished and the author’s working on the final episode as we speak. Enjoy.
