I'm always late to the party. How else to explain the fact that, even though Dean Trippe's "Butterfly" was my favorite part of Adhouse Books Superior Showcase #1, I've just now discovered that Trippe has been doing a Butterfly webcomic for months? A splendid paean to and parody of DC Comics' silver age superheroics. Butterfly is the sidekick of the latest Birdie, who is the sidekick of Knight-Bat. The storyline of the webstrip seems to have revolved primarily around Knight-Bat's surprise party for the last few months, with brief appearances by Butterfly's own higher-dimensional imp in training, and a sidetrip to Ice Cream City. And there's even an RSS feed. Awesome.
