Paul Rainey's Website

Who is this man of mystery? Random photos of my life. Behold the spawn of Paul! I read far too many of these things. Other sites almost as good as mine.

As you can see I'm addicted to online comics. Every now and then I get draconian and cull the list but somehow things appear overnight. (The odds are good they breed amongst themselves.) I keep meaning to write out descriptions of each one, or at least rate them somehow, but never quite get around to it. Sluggy is my all-around favorite, Superosity is tied with Rob and Elliot for oddball humor, and Order of the Stick is a great D&D-based strip.

I've also drawn a couple of strips on my own, inspired by whatever computer game I'm currently playing. I'm not a very good artist, though, so usually the strips don't last too long before I give up in disgust.

Mr. and Mrs. Hero - Based on the City of Heroes online computer game. It follows a husband and wife who play the game together and is loosely based on my own experiences playing with my darling Kristin.

Maltin the Mighty - Back in the EverQuest days my friends and I had a team of gnomes. Nothing turns heads more than the sight of six little guys charging into battle. The group didn't last long, alas, but it did inspire a strip centered around my own character, a gnome warrior named Maltin. Beware, I recently salvaged this stuff from old html code running on a different server, so some of the links are bad and there's currently no way to get back to the main home page.
