This comic oozes charm and people who watched certain Disney and Bluth movies in their childhood ought to like it!

She's Jezebel, an attractive but ruthless woman happy to manipulate him in her search for a buck. In a dusty, run-down future run by demons and thugs, how does Wake fit in?

This is a professional looking colour humour comic strip about an extremely evil TV. Its a joke a day style (not daily) 3 panel strip featuring very, very dark humour. So be warned.

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!
It's the near future, Lilly, Sazy and Ray go to school by day and play highly sophisticated game systems in their free time- giving them the same focus and attention as traditional sporting activities. 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+
In a dystopian near-future on a distant planet settled exclusively by the downtrodden and least-fortunate, Junk is what keeps people going and fuels their oppression. 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.
Meet the party of snickering RPG-like adventurers who make up the cast of Character Development. Halfling thief, debauching Bard, non-pious Cleric, confused Barbarian, dedicated Ranger, non-existant Illusionist, and the Paladin, the wanna-be leader who no one listens to in the slightest. Maybe it's because he has such girly hair? The party is actually led by the lady Mage, a manipulative fireball-thrower. I don't think it matters who their leader is, though- it's unlikely they're going to get out of that smelly dungeon, considering their laziness and general ineptitude. Maybe they should have leveled up first? A photocomic assembled with props, playmobil toys and a lot of jokes! Rated T+
With a name like Kung Fu Monkeyface, you know it's going to be good. Lively art with two cool distinct styles - loose, colorful stuff for the origin story and flashbacks, and rough-pencilly black and white for the grittier present. What happened to this monkey? Where did the Sunbringer go astray?
Poor Sam… She's a bit of a scruffy gal, but she's got a good heart. Why can't she get a girlfriend (who isn't insane)? You see, Sam's… *ahem* “ladyparts” are rather too loquacious! It has an opinion on EVERYTHING, and most of all it doesn't care if it makes her life hell. Sam's everyday life, dealing with her socially sabotaging, overly vocal vajayjay!
Loose Lips is a black and white comedy comic strip, touching on things that definitely aren't for the young'ns. Quite funny, very cheeky, but not as naughty as you'd think, so don't you worry! By Avie, Rated M.
