Welcome to Web-Comic Wednesday, and Super-Comic Sunday Reviews! My Technorati rating this week is 21035 at Frozen History Seven Publishing out of about 2 million comic blogs.

More government melodrama has happened with a great deal of my personal legal paperwork. My paintings, comics, and drawings for FH7 Comics are on hold until I can get legal and health insurance issues resolved. I need to do daylong waits for appointments in offices when I used to have drawing time, to make a long story short. Until that time, I will only be posting Sunday and Wednesday reviews of online comics due to time constraints at my main blog http://fhseven.com/ on WordPress.
Review: Here is the sad and forlorn tale of the webcomic that ended before it’s end. Elspeth ends mysteriously at the comic here: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Elspeth/5362842/ and then never posts again. It is not the end of the story! The series just stops! With clean lines, good story telling, and attractive characters it seems odd that it leaves off at such a standstill. The basic storyline is that Elspeth is an Orc weapons merchant traveling around Elf lands. She gives, sells, and trades weapons to the Elf people who consider her a “lower race” in a world of mages and magic. Humans conspire to help her overcome some of the Elves that took her magic necklace. And that is it! We never know if they get the Elves. Odd, to say the least! A sad end to a pretty lady Orc. My favorite comment is “Airman at 4:37AM, Dec. 1, 2009 This comic is fantastic. Is it weird that I think a half-orc is hot?” It is hard to make a girl with walrus teeth and incredible hulk arms look hotter than an elf chick. Yet this comic manages to do it. Sadly, when people are looking at a webcomic it is a “work in progress” when they are seeing it. This means it has not been put into a format like a fully published book. There is no guarantee that the author will ever give an end to the story. A one of the reasons the art form is not more popular with fans. I say it is a great comic and great effort, even for an unfinished work. I give it a good review, go check it out!
