I wanted to give some exposure to one of the blogs I read on a regular basis.
It’s titled Abaddon and Teal and is about the adventures of Warmaster Abaddon (Warhammer 40K) and his pet cat Teal; as well as
some other strange misfits the rest of the Warhammer 40k Primarchs and associates!
If you couldn’t tell by the feature artwork, it is a comic that isn’t to be taken too seriously, but is still an enjoyable and funny parody – probably because of the lack of seriousness factor.
As you can see, the characters are presented in stick form, but if you’re familiar enough with the main characters of the Horus Heresy (and why would you be reading a 40k related blog if you’re not?) then the simple individual traits make the characters obvious enough. And if you get confused, there is always the handy who’s who page to refer back too!
The story itself is presented in a variety of ways. There are some mini series within the comic; such as ‘Through the Keyhole. Or episodes of a longer story arc, like ‘Crusade’ but most of the posts are one-off funnies!
It’s a wonderful little read, if you can get ‘into’ it and I admit, I was somewhat skeptical at first, but it has totally grown on me and I look forward to seeing updates from it in my Reader.
So, why not give Abaddon and Teal a try for yourself, see how you get on with it!
