Deep in the forest lives a pale, white squirrel (that might not be a squirrel at all) and it instills fear in the hearts of the country folk who believe it to be an evil beast. The prince of the kingdom has vowed not to marry a bride until the creature has been killed as a testament to the power this squirrel has on the people. There is one brave soul among the crowd, a female archer who has ventured into the forest hoping to kill the beast and renew a sense of calm to the land. Her compassionate side shines through as one of her strengths when she assists an injured bird that was left to die in the forest. This is a story about Good versus Evil, Girl versus Nature, Archer versus Squirrel.
The art is Beautiful!! It is a combination of black ink, handwritten letters, and watercolor paint on textured watercolor paper. If you are a fan of comics drawn in a traditional art style, then this is a must read.
Please read The Archer and the Squirrel by Tieback to follow the young archer deep into the dark woods and discover if she will come across the legendary squirrel. Rated E.

Short stories in comic form with a mighty sting in the tail! Fluke has illustrated a variety of one and two page stories from different writers, they all have a slight Twilight Zone look and feel to them. They're quite easy to get through and well leave you affected in one way or another. He's quite slow to update and there aren't many pages here but since they're short stories you're not missing out on plot development. the art is all digital, drawn in grey scale, which enhances the Twilight Zone feel. The style of writing is the classic O. Henry type! Read Fatal Lullaby, by Fluke, rated E.
Unfruity and Nonchalant is the product you would get if you mixed a Keith Haring painting in a bowl with absolute cuteness. The simple style tells a quick story in one, two, three, or four panels while only using a single color (now THAT is talent!). The text dialogue is down to a minimum so it is up to the reader to make sense of the story in their head, whether it is a muffin top growing legs and walking away or an ice cream cone doing the same. This is a comic that will allow you to take a break from a long week, and trust me, you will be glad you did. The art is drawn digitally and it makes great use of monochromatic color choices.

Witch Natasha gathers her ingredients, makes all the right preparations, chants the dark magic words and… nothing. She tries again and then notices a perky young lady behind her. Young, happy-go-lucky, naive Giselle isn't quite the succubus Natasha had in mind when she decided to summon a demon! My pet Succubus is a cheeky, sexy comic strip. It's funny and naughty, while never quite crossing the line; the best sort of tease comic! It's drawn in a cute, sexy manga influenced style. The art is very professional, smooth, consistent, and the colours are gorgeous. This is an entertaining, slightly titillating piece of good fun.

Imagine a world where everyone woke up one day and fully committed to doing the right thing. Blood donation lines would be out the door; Models would advocate against sweatshop labor; Animal poachers would no longer feel the need to kill; Oil companies would switch to green alternatives. It is possible to get a peak into that world by reading the RIGHTEOUS webcomic. Chapter Zero shows several different news scenarios where the main characters have a change of heart and actively try to make a positive difference. Each page will leave you feeling better than the last and might even inspire you to do the same in your own life.
The art is digitally colored and uses digitally inked lines and vibrant colors. The art style is even reminiscent of traditional comic book art.

This wonderful anthology comic in the making is a collection of gothic tales (who'd a thunk it?) although so far only the one has been published. It has sumptuous cover art and the first tale “The Spider” has beautifully stylized art and is light on dialogue. What dialogue the comic has, is in french but fear not it is very easy to follow even if you speak french like a British tourist. The art is detailed and oozes personality as it draws you into the gothic world depicted within.

Little Lara is the last single human person left in the whole of the universe. She's a funny little girl with white hair and dark skin, which isn't surprising given the nasty radiation in space… Which is where she finds herself: picked up by some weird looking aliens on a big starship, filled with horrors who will soon become her friends and protectors. This is an action scifi story by the amazing and prolific Udyr! The colouring and art are the great stuff we've come to expect from Udyr. The story has comedy, pathos and intrigue.

Marco still lives at home with his mother, but that does not stop him from entering a world of adventure complete with larger than life creatures. Along his journey, he comes across a fighting Lion named Leo and a really aggressive chicken. It almost makes sense that he never leaves home without his bat. Also, the name of “Boys Land” is misleading because there is a girl inhabitant who lives in this world and her name is Tatyana and she works as a detective.
Boys Land is drawn in a black and white manga style that is read right to left. The cover pages of Boys Land as well as Boys Land and The Bandit Heist were drawn to enter in a contest for Shonen Manga.

From Essaybee, creator of Fusion comes Dude in distress.
Clark Peters is your average loser who can't get a date and is teased by his so called friends,
things change one fateful night when he is caught in the middle of a superhero battle between Femme Fantastic and Little Boy Boom.
Both the writing and art are reminiscent of Saturday morning cartoons. The story telling is light hearted and straight forward with slight subversion of an overly familiar genre. Meanwhile the art is bold and striking which perfectly suits the comic.
Dude In Distress, Rated T

Jonathin Quackup began, as he was chased out of his home and moved to a new kingdom to start again with his family… Jonathin Quackup of the Planet Weralt is a fantasy story almost in the style of a biblical tale; there's a bit of David in there, a bit of Moses, the Exodus… it's very interesting! The art is consistent throughout, abstracted and stylised, but pleasing.

Biological mutation experiment gone wrong? The Grunk is an olive green, bad-mouthed swamp monster who has a general disdain for Mondays…and pretty much everything. He lives close to the happiest of forests with inhabitants that appreciate everything from life, love and laughter. After escaping from his experiment tube, the Grunk runs into another sentient creature that calls itself a free spirit. GRUNK better be careful before he is ejected from his new aquaintance, too.
The art begins in full color, but a large majority of the comic is in black and white. Stylistically, the character designs for the Grunk are nicely done and original. There is a lot of shading that uses gradients.
If you dislike Mondays, and all things, you might have fun reading GRUNK by mg78, rated E.
Embrace the Pun! by Barry Corbett.
The title says it all, Embrace the Pun is a gag comic made up entirely of terrible puns. I say that with love, because personally I love bad puns.
The format is simple and effective, a single image and a pun, no more, no less. The art is clean black and white lines that has a lot of character.
All manner of subjects are covered, be they topical or otherwise, but the humour is always clean and safe for work.
Check out Embrace the Pun. Rated E
Marie Ingram is experiencing her high school years, the highs and lows of relationships, boys, crushes, dating, love and lust, all the things that go through a developing mind and body surging with hormones in those formative years. This a is cleverly told realistic drama story, using a clever blend of private dairy entries and illustrated scenes with minimal dialogue. A lot of the story is told by glances and body language alone. The art is in shades of grey, all digital simplified realism. The story is slow to unfold, but the drama connects with you emotionally.

Miracles by lex40515
I wasn't going to do another 3D comic again so soon but this one popped out of the blue and screamed feature. The Miracles are a team of superheroes formed by a billionaire scientist with altruistic tendencies. The team is unofficially government supported to combat the rise of meta human threats.
The art is 3d renders that are heavily affected but the end result is a bright and bold style that suits a super hero comic down to the ground. The writing seems strong, only twenty odd pages in and the characters are fairly established and groundwork is clearly laid for further mystery and adventure.

This is a world where people have powers, become registered and work as superheroes. But what happens if you don't make the cut? If you have power, but not quite enough, or the right temperament to join the ranks of the heroes? You become useless, like poor Bonnie… she's not a normal and yet she's not good enough to make the grade either. Where does she fit in society?
This is a full colour superhero drama. The art is all digital and nicely coloured, drawn in simple, pleasingly stylised shapes. The writing is dramatic and told pretty cleverly, with the exposition woven into the art.

The epic of Blitzov is, shock horror, the tale of Blitzov a warrior and Explorer who resides in a settlement called Bunkeria.
Bunkeria is a seemingly dangerous place filled with distinct characters such as the doctor, a nihilistic surgeon with a fascination with dissection.
Light on explanation te story unfolds through the art as much as it does the dialogue, which is pretty sparse. This comic promises to be an adventure of discovery for both the reader and Blitzov himself.

ACTION! Action, action, action!!! That pretty well sums up almost ALL of Aspect Immortal. We're dropped right into the middle of a very exciting war action scfi story, involving space marines, Egyptian god aliens, a sexy robot, and an even sexier Egyptian priestess lady (I'm guessing that's what she is). It's professionally illustrated, have interesting character designs, and bold colours. It's really a very pretty comic. But Aspect Immorality is actually the fourth chapter in a larger story called The Ruins of Hesh'imet, which you can see on http://www.richwallaceart.com/ruins/comic/prologue-page-1/ if you'd like to delve deeper and find out more about the interesting characters of Aspect Immortal.

Hand, Eye, and Voice is the moniker of the trio sworn to protect Sparta City. Hand knows the criminal mind and is the muscle, Eye is a supernatural powerhouse and crime lab rolled into one, and Voice is an ex-cop wrapped up in an invisible suit. The three are called when the world vomits out pure evil such as the Were-Pigeon. At the moment, Hand, Eye, and Voice must fight against, Carly Rand, a female nemesis who was once seen as an ally.
The comic is drawn in black and white using traditional inking methods. One interesting part of the art process is that some pages were sketched in 2011 and inked four years later in 2015.

Dragons in civilized lands by Robertrveith.
The story follows Tahni Vey, a singer whose life is changed when she is kidnapped to be part of a magical quest with other unwilling adventurers.
It's an epic sword and sorcery adventure in the vein of the black and white comics of the 70s and 80s with a touch of dungeons and dragons thrown in for good measure. It doesn't seek to parody the genre or reinvent the wheel but rather to pay homage to the roots of the genre in comic form.
The plot doesn't take long to get to the action and introduce the key characters, who rather fittingly
are exactly what you might expect from the genre.
The art is 3D rendered and filtered to give a black and white inked look which is quite effective and looks like it belongs in an old news paper.
This may help it appeal to those who aren't keen on 3D comics.
