Russian Machine Never Breaks is proud to announce the debut of our new webcomic, Shinny!
Brought to you by writer Peter Hassett and illustrator Rachel Cohen, Shinny! is a weekly comic all about hockey fandom. It’s the story of how hockey breaks and mends hearts, how it brings people together and smashes people together, and how there’s a place for everyone in it. Plus: hockey jokes.
Shinny is a spunky, twenty-something hockey fanatic. Beside her dad (an oldtimey hockey purist) and her boyfriend (a fairweather fan noob), Shinny sees every side of the hockey world and eventually finds her own place in it.
As a comic, Shinny! is both topical and lasting, telling stories about both current events and timeless hockey milestones. It’s about the people as much as the game, but with reverence for neither and jokes on all. Fans of every team (or no team at all) will find something to enjoy in Shinny!
New comics come out every Tuesday on RussianMachineNeverBreaks.com, as well as here on Tumblr! We’ll also be using this Tumblr to post extra content not seen on RMNB. Stay tuned!
With all the craziness at Russian Machine Never Breaks surrounding the meteor (along with the whole “Igor helped find ice on Mercury” story a few months back), I figured it was time to update the illustration I did of the RMNB crew. ;D
Here’s a great video by ‘East Coast/2.0’ Peter Hassett from the Washington Capitals blog Russian Machine Never Breaks on the various stances hockey players have taken in regards to Russia’s anti-gay laws. No matter how much I disagree with Peter’s stance on seafood, this is worth your time.
