John Allison's Scary Go Round et al.

My recommendation, if you're playing catch-up:

1. Buy the first 5 issues of Steeple (AKA volume 1) and then read the rest up to Christmas with Clovis online
2. Buy Wicked Things (which is effectively Solver book zero) and then read Circus Windows online
3. Enjoy the wonderful Author Unknown crossover event
4. Finish catching up with Steeple and Solver at your leisure

Steeple and Solver are both excellent IMO, among my favorite stuff that Allison has ever done. Confusingly, both series start with work that is (for the moment) not available for free on any of John's multitudinous websites.
Is Desmond in any of these things though? That's the real important question that needs to be answered. @JBear knows how important this is.

What's Shenmue?
If I'm being completely honest, Giant Days isn't my fave. I enjoy it, but not to the same extent as Bad Machinery, Steeple or Solver. My biggest gripe is that Esther's character seems to have been completely rewritten from her old SGR days - not that most people would remember. McGraw's existence makes up for that in large part, but I think I'll always prefer my Allison stories with a bit more weirdness and supernatural aspects to them.
I admit that Esther is my least favourite of the main characters (except for maybe Ed, but Ed is kind of boring by design).

Bless your heart sir, this is what I've needed. Well, that and time, and the will to sit at a computer to read comics. Maybe I should get a tablet.

This...this makes me sad...!
