DISCOVERY BLOG

As 2010 draws to a close, I look back at what discoveries I have made through the year and enjoyed so much that I thought I would share them with you.

Ginger Meggs

Current Ginger Meggs drawer - Jason Chatfield

One thing that I found was a 12 year old ginger boy, before you called child protection let me give you the name of him: Ginger Meggs. This comic character will turn 90 next year and after so many adventures this little red head has captured the nation.

He was originally drawn by Jimmy Bancks in 1921 and published in Sunbeams Sunday Sun paper. Ginger Meggs is now drawn by Melbourne based cartoonist, Jason Chatfield.

Zero Punctuation

I wish I had known about this sooner – this guy reviews video games, but puts gibberish into highly amusing stick figures and plain language that anyone can listen too. Unless you are a gamer (or know one, like I do) you may never know about this site. But for people who like something a bit quirkey then this may be the thing for you. Check out his review of Amnesia: The Dark Decent (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/2092-Amnesia-The-Dark-Descent)
