Strange Revelations

snapshot1.pngJustin, at Chicken Yoghurt, has started Apocalypsewatch: An occasional series, which does what it says on the can. He argues, persuasively as it seems to me, that the controversy over the semiotics of David Cameron’s hairstyle — left or right parting — is a sure sign that the first of the Seven Seals has been opened by the Lamb, thus presaging the end of the world and giving me the opportunity to plug what I think is a brilliant site, Apocamon, The Final Judgement. snapshot4.png

This site takes, I fear, an age to load (open it in another tab and do something else for the 5 minutes it takes) but when it finally does open, you get the Book of Revelations in Manga style, complete with Apocamon cards (click on thumbnails to enlarge). They’ve managed four episodes so far, and promise the remaining ones some time before The Battle of Armageddon. The episodes take an age to load, too, but are worth the wait. At least I think they are.
UPDATE: This mirror site seems to load a lot faster

snapshot3.pngJustin complains that Revelations provides no information whatsoever about what side the First Horseman of the Apocalypse parts his hair on. I can only assume this is because his crown obscures it.

  1. Good point about the crown. Back to bible class for me.

    The Manga Revelation site is bloody brilliant.
