Down On Oxford Road

Lauren Chaikin, Cleveland-based illustrator and possibly real life cartoon character, completed a comic a couple years ago that exists in the crossroads between time travel and slice of life.

The one-shot story, Oxford Road, is about a town made up of people who have been yanked out of different points in history. No historical figures, just people. It was pretty neat.

Now she's rewriting the story as a webcomic.

The comic is in its infancy, but I have high hopes for the time travel comedy and will be checking on its progress obsessively. The main characters are sweet, the art style is fun, and I happily await more developments.
