Update 4/22/11 – Following a bit of serendipity, I have received permission from the author, Meghan O’hara, to continue to house her work. Thanks, Meghan!
A while back, I managed to download the excellent webcomic Hammer of Grammar to my hard drive, just before the website went dark. For months I kept it on my rotation hoping it would revive itself.
It never did.
I promised myself that I would make those comics available somehow, but before I could, I felt the need to try to get permission to do so. Two years ago, in 2009, I found a lead and made inquiries, but never got a reply. Gweryc, the blogger in question, has not posted in over a year and a half. The last surfacing of Auden was over 3 and a half years ago. I don’t think we’re going to hear from them. I hope they’re well and happy together.
That leaves me with my unfulfilled promise. I have now delivered on it; up there in the menu you will now find a page that contains the entirety of Hammer of Grammar except for #1 – that one disappeared from the main site in 2007.
A couple of things:
I don’t have permission to do this.The page is a labor of love, and is borne of desire to share the wry wit of this most excellent series, however short it was.
- I could be contacted and issued a takedown notice by the creator. I will comply if that occurs. I have no desire to go against the creator’s wishes.
- I am considering additional rescue projects. I’m looking at you, Scout Report. How long has it been?1
That’s it. Take fifteen minutes of your life and enjoy yourself.
- And, incidentally, if anyone has contact info regarding Scout Report, please pass it along. [↩]
