Another web comic

Caught up with another web comic the other night (the first of a big batch I've just had recommended to me). This one also I like. (It should come as no surprise to anyone that I went and had a look at the werewolf comic first...)

Paradigm Shift is another comic that's fairly new (in as much as that the story is still gathering pace). The main characters are a couple of cops (who may or may not have some sort of chemistry between them, but if they do it's so subtle I haven't noticed it yet. Such subtlety is not difficult to perpetrate against myself) who are investigating what is becoming a series of reasonably nasty murders taking place over a full moon.

It's getting a wee bit close to showing the cops bumbling around while the answer is staring them right in the face... although, in the characters' defence, they're used to solving murders with science, not folklore. The emphasis of the story so far is on the police procedure and is busy introducing characters, some of whom may not be particularly relevant to the plot (yet) but certainly add depth to the story.

The art is very good. It's mildly manga-style, but, apart from the female lead's fringe (which just cries out for an icon with a prominently positioned comb, in much the style of Megan's Tsume-with-scissors icon), it's very realistic.

It doesn't seem to update all that frequently (the last update would be about a month ago), but the updates can be up to three or four pages long and the quality is consistent. This one is (yet another) keeper on my now rather heavy list of currently-being-kept-up-with web comics.
