Lilith Dark

I love a good Walter Mitty story. And there have been some greats. Ralph Phillips from the old Warner Brothers cartoons, who dreamed up all sorts of adventures from everyday challenges. Hobbes very nature makes Calvin a Walter Mitty. I’ve…

O Human Star

Alastair Stirling, roboticist and AI inventor wakes up. Which is amazing considering he died sixteen years earlier.  Al dreams of more for robots, how advanced, how life-like they can be. Then he wakes to find he is one. What’s more, he’s…

Shrub Monkeys

Take journal comic and toss liberally with the absurd. Wrap it up in an animator side project box and you’ve got Shrub Monkeys.    The exploits of Katie Shanahan and her two younger siblings are presented weekly in a loose, strip…

Manta Man

Chad Sell himself admits he’s not 100% sure what Manta Man is. It’s a crazy, rambling tale of love, sex, naked ladies, and monkeys. […] It’s not exactly a superhero comic, and it’s only a little gay. Imagine something between Love &…

Webcomic Moonlighting

One of the biggest daggers thrown at webcomics is that because it’s so easy to start one, anybody can do it and there’s just so much poorly done work that webcomics are viewed as amateur and not worthy. Well what…

Free Mars

All you wanna do is play some rock and roll, maybe get some fans, a little fame, a little fortune. And next thing you know, you’re the sound of the Free Mars revolution. Such is the situation for The Sisters…

Outsider

Outsider is going straight into the ‘when is this going to be finished so I can buy the book’ category. Especially if they do a bit of tweaking to make the art consistent throughout. The story is familiar, Humanity begins space exploration…

Mary Elizabeth’s Sock

Quirky is the only word I can use to describe Mary Elizabeth’s Sock. Odd sounds negative. Weird sounds both negative and more like something from EC in the sixties. It’s not zany or screwball. It’s just, quirky. I don’t want…

Otto the Odd and the Dragon King

Sorry, got turned away at Expo and wandered off for a while. So digging back into my TCAF bag of tricks I came across a flyer for Otto the Odd and the Dragon King. An intriguing title and very nice looking…

Rock, Paper, Cynic

One of the most awesome things about webcomics is all it really takes to make one is the decision to make one. Then you set yourself up with a website and start posting. Oh I know this is also seen…

The Intrepid Girlbot

I met Diana Nock at TCAF. Sadly, it was late on the second day and I was pretty much spent out. But she offered to take my last cash for a copy of her first collection of The Intrpeid GirlBot and I’m…

Project Ballad

I’m not sure Project is the right term for this comic. I think Enterprise Ballad might be more fitting because this seems like something big. Really big. So big that in everything so far presented I can’t even begin to…

Bear Nuts

Bear Nuts is wrong. Cute fluffy animals doing unspeakable things wrong.  Seriously, when the cast list is: Prozac, Death, Gimp, Lech, Evil, Tanked, Gay, Nerd and Cracked Bear you know this is just wrong, wrong, wrong. And Alison Acton does…

Space Kid

We’re going back this week. Back in a retro sense, but also a bit of history. John MacLeod’s Space Kid is a throwback. And a self-aware one at that. If you enjoy 50’s science fiction, Astro Boy or rocket ships…

Specimen B28

This time we’re going out of this world. While at Wizard World I ran into Stephen Daymond whose work I had noticed before but hadn’t followed up on. Specimen B28 is a little bit 70’s UFO culture, a little bit Tripping…

Vengador

So an area I haven’t wandered into is webcomics doing what print comics have all sealed up. Superheroes. It’s a tough area, when you have a whole industry that is focused in on that one genre. You are putting yourself…

Boumeries

On Sunday my walkabout took me to the Toronto Wizard World show. A bit barren, but I did stumble across a few new finds. My first was one I was aware of before attending, but pleasantly pleased to find and…

Spare Keys for Strange Doors

Buffy and or say X-Files might be the best comparison for Spare Keys for Strange Doors. Or maybe Lost Girl if you know it. Toby Hathaway and Marion Sark are professional supernatural problem solvers. ‘Blessed’ with powers of their own,…
