Tweet STRONG FEMALE PROTAGONIST is a relative newcomer to the world of webcomics, initiated in 2012, but already boasts three issues of 22 pages written by Brennan Lee Mulligan and drawn by New York School of the Visual arts student Molly Ostertag. As the title suggests, the comic follows Ostertag’s own goal to depict “no [...]
TweetNoelle 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 [...]
Tweet Ethan Young’s webseries TAILS has been running since 2009 and springs from a 2006 mini-series of the same title. 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 [...]
TweetA 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 [...]
TweetSCHMUCK 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, [...]
TweetSin 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.
TweetLet’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 [...]
TweetEvery Friday, Stately Beat Mansion invites round a comic creator or two for a cup of tea, complementary Kit Kat, and a chat about their work in The Phoenix. The Phoenix is a UK series which features a range of the best all-ages comics available, from all kinds of wonderful creators – all compiled into a [...]
TweetGunnerkrigg 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 [...]
TweetJuan Santapau’s The Secret Knots is a launchpad for a variety of different comics – sometimes a long-form work, sometimes a single story in a page, and sometimes an extended work of fiction within a long, single frame. It’s an absolutely lovely piece of work, punctuated by superb, charming writing and utterly gorgeous artwork.
TweetIt’s only hour 4 of 24 hours of Webcomics and already I’m cheating a bit by spotlighting the work of a single cartoonist more than a single webcomic. But heck, it’s all about reading comic on the web. Sam Alden is a young Portland cartoonist who is rapidly developing with comics on his own website [...]
