Full colours, full page story comic with magnificent art and bright flat colour by Dodger, Rated T+
Another Door is a collection of short comic stories by noncannonfireworks. The first story, Ground Zero, takes place in the midst of an escape from a secure facility where experimentation occurs… but who or what is escaping and how will they stop it? The second story, The Best Teacher, has less action but more heart- it's a story of a man's reminiscences about his lost friend. At first the art seems deceptively simple, but it's done in a cool, scratchy, retro kind of manga style. Rated E!
Tiggz and tomes and two level 5 bosses in a Dungeon Hoardes RPG game. Tiggz is a mighty black knight and tomes is a dangerous bandit chief, together they stride across the world wreaking havoc and destruction to all and sundry! …well they would if they werent just puny level 5s who spend all their time fighting dangerous warbunnies and omni-digesting gelatinous cubes of evil.
Dungeon Hoards is a humorous 4 panel comic strip (sometimes 3), with a console RPG theme, all from the perspective of two cute bad guys. The art is pure black and white. The figures are short, slightly dwarfish, stocky and deformed and intensely cute and lovable.
To sum this comic up its just basically cute and funny! By Demongrinder, rated E
Kikyou is a (somewhat girlishly) attractive young lad who can't help but get man-crushes on men like Captain Kirk and Batman. And who can blame him? Sadly he's a bit of a loser and has issues with schoolmates picking on him and ruining his videogaming sessions. A cute, fluffy comic with skill ful manga-styled (and pink!) art. By furan, T+

In this sci-fi comic, a highly qualified response team in fancy black nano-suits are hired to infiltrate an extremely high-tech research facility to recover the personnel trapped inside when something goes wrong. And then their own rescue goes wrong. They were warned that anything can happen in there - even the warping of reality! This is a conceit for a clever example of comic creating - each page is drawn by a different (very skilled) artist, weaving a story where the characters- and your- perceptions are constantly shifting.
Teenagers all wake up in a hospital without any memory of who they are or how they got there. As more and more of them meet and compare experiences things seem quite strange… But they're about to get a whole lot stranger! …And then even stranger than that.
And why do Adrian and Ariana have pointy ears?
I'm not sure if this is fantasy or SciFi yet at this stage, it could be either. Should be interesting to find out!
With very colourful. fully shaded, manga influenced artwork, Prodigium is a drama mystery comic with the promise of a very interesting reveal down the track. Rated T+ by Binaryfaye
Lord Khern, an elven ambassador (of a kind), has been sent to an underground settlement to ascertain the “situation” after enemies were spotted in the area. The situation is that everyone in the city is dead, save for a single survivor… Extremely skillful artwork composed of gorgeous digital watercolors. This fantasy drama looks dark and serious already, but also very good!
FAIL: Fascists for American Integrity and Leadership. Conspiracy! FAIL weaves one hell of a beautiful conspiracy. Ever wondered at the connections between 9/11, wars, wikileaks, the economy…? Well instead of those annoying tinfoil hat theories, this comic makes them all part of an entertaining story, stick with it, it's cool, trust me.
With solid black and white stylised art, FAIL is an exciting dramatic political conspiracy comic that has some real current events mixed in! Ever hear of a little thing called Wikileaks and a certain funny looking blonde Australian guy by the name of Julian Assange?
No? Me neither… ^_^

Poor little Medusa is finding it very hard to make new friends… but blocking up Jake's toilet, flooding his entire house and leaving all his stuff smelling of pee probably wasn't a good start. Medusa has snakes for hair, big black eyes and a snaky fishy tail, she hails from the magical land of Yeld. Jake is a big guy with a beard and a house that smells of pee, thanks to SOMEbody… Oh, and there are also two mermaids with big boobs.
The art is lovely and rounded and stylised, in colour as well and black and white and even grey! Modest Medusa is a cartoon humour comic strip by Jake Richmond. Updates three times a week, rated T+
Mystery Babylon is a strong woman. A strong woman with a strong kick and a strong punch and a big temper.

Beautiful anime-styled artwork with lots of action and humor, and a few twists and turns you won't be expecting!

They live to play. N.E.O.S.I.N. is the massive new and mysterious game tournament being introduced into town and the friends want to be a part of it.
The art is characteristic stylised manga, mostly black and white, but with some nice colour too on occasion, it shows a very high level of skill and familiarity with the genre. Ponzi is a teen action drama, with a near future setting and a tournament theme. Art by Kevin D. Raganit and story by Maria Balsakova rated T+

Kermit is an AWOL MP with a fatal virus that can only be staved off by Junk, a drug which is difficult to get and drives Kermit and many other unfortunate people to desperate measures to obtain. Lovely full color pages done in a mix of drawn, photomanip and 3D imagery. Not a cheerful read, but a thoughtful one! Rated M.
Kaye is the grim Reaper. A stupid accident killed the last one… It was Kaye's fault and now he's going to pay for it. Luckily he has a sexy Tooth Fairy to guide him in his new job! Death and the Fairy is a funny comedy manga by Sama and Oneblackpaper. It's drawn in a trad manga style and it even reads right to left (due to the requirements of their publisher), but it's not so bad because there aren't many panels. the art is mostly all black and white, but I cheated by showing a colour pic from the cover because that's one sexy pic!
Read Death and the Fairy, Rated T+
The world is changing, and the rough-and-tumble human residents of Sunset City don't always like the new arrangements. Especially not when the elfin Sheriff Lain rides into their town on a unicorn. The wild-west town does have a healthy non-human population (minotaurs, fairies, leprechauns, etc.) but it looks like they're in a tough situation- not that Miss Lain needs their help. Forgive the rough English from a non-native speaker, because the art is wonderful and the story so far looks like brilliant fun. This is an especially-early feature because this comic looks amazingly promising!

Aliens Anonymous is a hilarious scifi mystery comic with groovy stylised art in full colour. It's a little crude in its depictions, but because it's so consistent and vibrant, that ends up adding a whole new level of charm. by K1at, rated E.
Magellan's story is a cross between the X-Men's “superhero school” concept and the more-realistic character driven sensibility of Mike Allred's Atomics. With clean linework and bright colors, the comic has the look and feel of a successful indie book, and is just as surprising and pleasurable to read. Not completely a superhero comic and not completely a school drama, the story revolves around Kaycee and Nadine's arrival at the Magellan school, where teens who have the skills and approved psych profile can train to be good guys and all that fun stuff. We also get to see their various classmates, esteemed alumni, crimefighting, the list goes on!
Trig and his dragon friend Artex and trying to work out why piles of scrap metal are being mysteriously dumped into a mall… through a portal into a parallel universe. And then they're attacked by zombie policemen! Meanwhile a young wolfboy is wondering around with a rat on his head trying to remember his name…
The Parallel is a black and white story humour comic by Yoite. It has a sketchy, digital art style, quick, stylised, simplified and expressive! Rated E.
Elements is a comic best read as it's updating, because it's a choose-your-own-adventure, modeled after old text adventures like Zork. The illustrations are simple but charming and add to the old-video-game feel. doodstormer takes suggestions from a number of different sources but does his best to accomodate many of the sillier ones, injecting much of his own humor as well. The story is that of Lon Quillow (you), the village's best mushroom farmer, and ensuing adventure. It's a funny comic built around a fun concept, which generally updates in batches.
Ka-Den is spirited away from her temple residence in the middle of the night by the mysterious blindfolded assassin Cale, but to what end? And is she all that she seems, is she truly a priestess or even human?
There much is dark magic at play in this fantasy story. And many mystery to be slowly revealed. The Tainted is old very much in the “decompressed” style. It's a slowly evolving story that follows a few different characters. The art is mostly digital, in full colour, cleanly cell shaded for the most part, with the occasional detailed textures added to some elements, simplified realistic western style with the occasional chibi, and very nicely done overall.
Rated M, art and writing by Rana.
