This week’s post is a plug for a new webcomic, authored by my partner Story; it’s a post-apocalyptic sci-fi setting, after sea levels have risen. It explores power dynamics between the rich and poor, human vulnerability, and has some solid fight scenes too! Check it out, and if you like it consider supporting the comic through Patreon as well.
Since this is mostly a technical/FOSS blog, and my readers might actually be interested:
The site is generated with Hugo, plus a few custom scripts to generate the comic page navigation. It’s hosted on the same box as my own blog.
Hugo has been a bit awkward since it’s more oriented towards technical
blogs, but we haven’t really found anything better. At first we looked
at using Wordpress via Sandstorm’s static publishing, though
rather than set up the
TXT record I had nginx on this machine rigged
up to proxy the site directly (with caching), which was easier to set
up. But all this ended up being moot since Wordpress didn’t really
meet Story’s needs for actually generating the site.
Anyway, the comic is good. Enjoy.
