Arachnophilia: Lest We Forget

Since it pops up periodically in discussions, and since I'm getting fed up with hunting for it, here is a link to the archive of Patrick Farley's brilliant but uncompleted webcomic 'Spiders'.

It tells the tale of a few protagonists in the war in Afghanistan, fought in an alternate universe where Al Gore is president and the might of the US army is represented by a horde of miniature surveillance devices run by an open networked community.

If you think that's weird, wait until you start reading! Like a lot of great cult productions, the ending is effectively left to you. (Farley may complete it, one day, but don't hold your breath)

Yeah, I know, the image is copyright of Patrick Farley 2001-03. He can tell me to remove it any time, and I will.
