Subway Stories #3: Thomas Baehr


Sent to you by Jack via Google Reader:

Sometimes the simplest taglines are the most effective—by that standard, Thomas Baehr really hit the nail on the head with Pole. The Webcomic bears the rather straightforward slogan, "The Comic Strip About Penguins," and, well, one would be hard-pressed to cobble together five words that better described the whimsical little online comic.

With the Act-I-Vate strip, The End is Here, the German-born artist has adopted a far more serious storyline, also starring a cast of everyone's favorite flightless Arctic birds.

For this third installment of our Subway Stories series, Baehr abandoned his penguin friends momentarily to bring us the story of an underground busker. "No Tips, Please" was written by Avi Kotzer with art by Baehr, who assures me that it is, in fact, based on a true story.

You can check out more of Baehr's work (and plenty more penguins) at So What? The Artroom.
