More Metafiction

Over in the comments on my post about the latest Tom the Dancing Bug strip, "Banzai Cat" points me to an online comic that plays with metafiction in similar ways. This one, "Mang Tomas the Storyteller," is all about a gun-toting dude who polices fiction, to make sure that stories stay comfortably within their genres. No Lovecraftian monsters in westerns, and certainly no big slipstream beasts in Archie-style comics. Of course, things don't always work out that way.

Dammit Roberson! Quit giving me more things to read!
Dude, before now I wasn't sure you could read...
I mostly look at the pictures, for which I appreciate this post.
