SpiderForest Comic of the Week:
Precocious by Christopher J. Paulsen.
Precocious is a charming humor strip about four kids who go to a school called the Poppinstock Academy for Gifted Children. Though its creator, Chrispy, has kindly assembled a page for new readers which offers a sampling of strips, I’d personally recommend going to the cast page first, as much of the appeal of the comic is derived from the personalities of its central characters (rather like Peanuts, which Chrispy lists as one of his influences). I found it useful to quickly get to know those personality-types first before diving into the actual strips (which I enjoyed more as a result). Also, pre-orders are being accepted for the first Precocious collection, if you’d rather read it in print (and who wouldn’t?).
