Frank Stockton’s “Hamburgers for One”
I’m encouraged to see artists embracing the short story form a bit more. Anthologies used to be the only venue (and indeed, this one was originally for Popgun Vol. 4), but they also work well on the Web, where a GN’s worth of time may be hard to find, but many viewers are ready to carve out 5-10 minutes.
Stories like “HfO” (or this or this) also make a great entry point for new comics readers, wondering what might be worth reading out there, but nowhere near ready for a more substantial investment of time and effort.
