24 Hours of Webcomics: VectorBelly

Sometimes you like a webcomic because it tells a story you can’t find anywhere else. Sometimes you like a webcomic because it’s NONSENSE.

24 Hours of Webcomics: David Fitzsimmons

fitz

Some of my most fondest memories were spending time at my great grandmother’s house during the brutal Tucson summers. My mother would wake my sister and I at the crack of dawn to drive us to my Nana’s house. We had a morning routine that included drinking dark roasted coffee, and scrambled eggs with burnt […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: The Phoenix Requiem

The Phoenix Requiem

The Phoenix Requiem is probably one of the most beautiful webcomics I’ve read. It is also now complete after 25 chapters and 800 gorgeous pages – the perfect time to sit down and start reading!

24 Hours of Webcomics: Nimona

nimonapage1_chapter1

Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona is the story of an impetuous, eager, and (most notably) successful villainous sidekick, who is also a shapeshifter. Set during a time of knights and black magic and lancing and people living in tents, Nimona is a silly but thoroughly charming webcomic which has grown impressively in style and content over the […]

In transit, the comic has appeared in a first collected print volume from Hermes Press, and a second volume is imminent, on Diamond solicitation lists this month. TAILS brings a fictionalized “cartoon Ethan” to life as […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: The Summer of Blake Sinclair

sbs1

A gorgeous, slow, relaxed and delightful body of work, The Summer of Blake Sinclair tells a long-form story over a series of short moments. Created by Sarah Burgess, it’s a webcomic where the overall story doesn’t matter as much as the sense of evoking a mood, and feeling. In this case, that mood is of […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: SCHMUCK

Schmuck-1_PROOF

SCHMUCK is the brain-child of pop culture man about town and award-winning photographer Seth Kushner. He sets out to tell a semi-autobiographical story  in the hands of a host of talented comic artists featuring the brutal honesty of real life when looking for love. One of the dominant themes is coming from a Jewish background, […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: Sinfest

Sinfest

Sinfest is most probably a comic everyone has heard of – Tatsuya “Tats” Ishida’s daily strip has been going strong for some thirteen years now but things have recently taken a surprising feminist turn.

24 Hours of Webcomics: The Ghost Engine

ge

Just wrapped up by creators Danny Djeljosevic and Eric Z, The Ghost Engine is a funny, smart series told over the course of four chapters. Featuring great character work and especially zippy dialogue, the series is a buddy story following two people who have ghosts in their heads.

24 Hours of Webcomics: Sin Titulo

Sin Titulo

Sin Titulo is a master class in comics storytelling, courtesy of the ridiculously talented Cameron Stewart of Seaguy, Batman and The Other Side fame. It is also the only webcomic I’ve experienced genuine rage when reading, because my goddamn 16 MB/s connection wasn’t loading the next page fast enough.

24 Hours of Webcomics: Bottom of the Ninth

botn1

Let’s try something a little different, as we’re a short way into our 24 hours now. Bottom of the Ninth was launched last year by Ryan Woodward, and is an animated comic strip. If you click on each panel of each page, there’s usually a sound clip or animation detailing the progression of the story […]

24 Hours of Webcomics: JL8

JL8

JL8 is probably one of the main reasons I’ve been feeling meh about DC lately. Because this, THIS, is how our heroes should be done!

24 Hours of Webcomics: Formalsweat Pants

fsp2

I think comedy is the toughest impression to pull with comics. It’s not easy to create something humorous and memorable – something that makes you laugh out loud – using the visual narrative. Josh Mecouch, the creator of Formalsweat Pants,  makes it look easy.

24 Hours of Webcomics: Gunnerkrigg Court

Gunnerkrigg Court

Gunnerkrigg Court is a comic that I find myself trying not to visit for as long as possible, only so that I can then drink up a nice long chunk in one go before reluctantly slithering back into withdrawal. The plot is always veering off in spectacular new directions, with cliffhangers and revelations and I […]
