Dark Side of the Horse

A huge shout out for the new arrival on the GoComics pages, Dark Side of the Horse which is drawn by the super talented Finnish cartoonist Samuli Lintula who goes by the name Samson.  The strip started out in June 2008 when it was drawn on what appeared to be Post-it notes. Since then, Horace the horse and his sparsely surreal world have evolved into a beautifully rendered and spectacularly offbeat strip. I really can't say enough about it.  Everything from the bleak humor to the restrained use of colors really blows my socks off.  Since I'll be in Helsinki at some point next year I'm planning to stalk him.
