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 […]
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 […]
TweetI’ve been following Colin Bell’s webcomics for a little while now – his previous work includes Jonbot Vs Martha – and his newest webcomic is a beaut. Written by Matthew Meylikhov and Bell, the strip is drawn by Nina Cadman and tells the story of a noir detective who is also a kittykat. He swears space […]
TweetThe Abominable Charles Christopher is one of those rare comics that I recommend to absolutely everyone regardless of their age, genre preferences or comic reading habits. It’s also one of the hardest comics to describe in a way that fully conveys the beauty and genius inside, as it is essentially the tale of a Yeti […]

The free app—developed by Alien Loves Predator’s Bernie Hou—is an aggregator for your favorite webcomics on the various mobile platforms. The app includes a panel-to-panel transition mode and the full archives of all the comics. Unlike some […]
Tweet Mark Waid’s webcomic portal Thrillbent recently underwent a makeover and now has comics you can embed directly on your site, which is a great way to spread them even further. And a new comic is launching today, Tim Gibson’s Moth City, a moody thriller about a tycoon who gets caught between warring factions after […]
TweetBut it’s the Rugburn-produced motion comic AXE COP—not the yet-to-premiere animated version that will debut in July as part of Fox’s ADHD adult animation block. Whoa, are you confused yet? Perhaps. But the bottom line is…there can not be too much AXE COP. You’ll recall that the webcomic is written by 5-year-old Malachi Nicolle and […]
Whoa! Jason Little – BeeComix, Shutterburg Follies—has launched a daily webcomic called BORB and it concerns a hobo and his hobo-adventures.
Tweet by Bruce Lidl The last few weeks have seen a number of big developments in the digital comics realm, from the highs of Marvel’s big announcements at SXSW to the lows of JManga’s imminent closure. Comixology continues to distance itself from its rivals, and with the new Submit program is poised to expand greatly the revenue possibilities for independent creators. […]
Tweet It’s been a HUGE month for webcomics projects on Kickstarter with no less than four six-figure projects. The Cyanide and Happiness crew netted $770,309 for their animation projects—the most ever for an animation Kickstarter. You may recall that the four-man combine rejected three established TV deals to do it their own way. David Makli!’s […]
