The Sorowful Putto of PragueI would like to draw your attention to The Sorrowful Putto of Prague - a rather gorgeous online comic by James Stafford.

The stories follow Xavier of the House of the Sorrowful Snows, a Baroque putto who has apparently come down from his perch (wherever it was) and is milling about modern day Prague giving more wholesome angels a bad name.

It's frequently funny, it's sometimes through-provoking, and it's always entertaining. And it has got its own soundtrack, including pieces by Roger O'Donnell of The Cure.
