The world of Richard Macrae’s Silverback is full of superheroes and supervillains, and is lacking in evidence as to which is which. It’s a throwback to the Silver Age while also being full of tropes, cliches, and loads of fun. While we wish the site it lives on were more modern, you shouldn’t miss this wild, evil ride!
Alex Norris’ Webcomic Name will have you saying oh no over and over, but in a good way! It’s a comic that dwells on the negative and depressing elements of life, but with such joy and whimsy that you won’t get lost in just how meaningless life really is. It also abstracts forms to both fascinating and terrifying effect and must be read to be believed!
It can be hard to stick to the point and really cut to the heart of a matter, but Matthew Wills does just that with SWORDS, his love letter to all things sharp and pointy. While Jason gets a bit less of a kick out of the running gag than Steve does, both guys appreciate the dedication to the gag and the ability to get so much humor out of such a narrow subject. Unsheathe your best weapon and prepare to take on the gauntlet of sword-based puns and jokes with us!
Brin and Sven are lazy bounty hunters who need to pay rent, so they go looking for trouble and find more than they bargained for! Along the way, the leads of Eric Lide’s Station Square meet Nem, Grinder, Edwin, Davan, Shade, Gazzo, Mad AND Vlad the Swine, Sunhild, Ardent, and other characters that sound like Muppets. It’s a shonen comic that gets better with age and features a fight longer than many marriages last these days. Get off the couch and don’t miss it!
In Vainglorious, Hammer (yes, his name is Hammer) wants to run away from his problems and responsibilities, but then Rei, a former dragon cursed with a human form, falls into his lap (almost literally) and the two become instant friends. Well no, not really, and that’s where the greatness of this comic comes from. Creator Kelly Bull (Sketches) takes us on a journey that is both fantastic and fun, with plenty of hilarious facial expressions and bombastic fantasy along the way.
It’s time for a new quest, and Basri and Hector, the titular Elf & Warrior from the comic by AC Stuart and Victor Rosas II, are looking for new members to join them in search of adventure and fame. Are you a mimic with an insatiable need to be full? How about a sentient tree stump with a dark side? Anyone call for a pug/goblin race with relationship issues? Sign up here today, because based on the hijinks in this comic, everyone will be considered and most will make the cut!
In the world of Jason Clarke’s Black & Blue, nobody is having a good time, and yet somehow, in a Tarantino-esque fashion, he is able to create a comic that is very enjoyable to read. After a bit of news about one of Chris Grine’s properties being set for a big-screen turn, we delve into the seedy underworld that surrounds both humans and robots alike, and try to figure out just why this girl’s disembodied head is so darned special.
From Peanuts to Calvin and Hobbes and with a dash of Foxtrot thrown in, kids in comics have a great new entry in the entertaining space with Tauhid Bondia’s Crabgrass. Kevin and Miles have a strong blood brother’s bond that can’t be broken, which is helpful since teachers, parents, bullies, and siblings are all trying to tear them down. It’s all ages fun that joins some amazing comics about friendship and the stupid things kids do from time to time and is noteworthy all on its own.
Float out and float on, bro, become one with the ocean, but keep your body above water, lest you be bitten by a seaghost and find yourself forever alone and damned. See, chill? Claire K. Niebergall’s Phantomarine is equal parts sweet and fun mixed with dread and impending doom. It’s a combination that works surprisingly well, buoyed by a great cast that includes a wise and brave undead princess, a precocious seabitten boy, and the cutest ghost dog you’ve ever seen. Surfs up, now GET OUT OF THE WATER!
Grab your leathers, give them an outrageously fun and devastating name, and meet us in the ring to go a round or two with Jack McGee’s Star Impact. We love this diverse, colorful cast of characters, whose inspiration springs from boxing tales like Punch-Out! and will dazzle you with fast and frantic artwork that makes you feel like you’re right in the fight (of which there are a LOT).
