May is here, and Spring is creeping its chilly, rainy way into Boston.
A fine selection of works were sent to the Blender last month, and 15 of them are hand-selected by your friendly Blender-Keeper for your reading enjoyment below.
This month's feature is a
review and selection from one of the
finest webcomics out there, Diesel Sweeties.
As always, read and enjoy!
