A dead man wakes up in a cemetery and is immediately beset by a mysterious woman claiming to be his wife, and a shirtless guy with lighting powers (who doesn't seem to like his so-called wife). The dead guy's got a lot of questions and not many answers- readers are probably feeling the same! Lovely pastel paper-cutout art, spacious vertical format, and a leisurely-paced, mystery-laced story.
I love the Dark is a bit of a magical reality slice of life comic. The key characters are Noir- a serious, hard working young woman with dark tastes and the authors alter ego, and Kyll- a rather dangerous looking plush bunny rabbit who is Niors companion and observer. Various instances, inspired by real events and entirely imagined are depicted in all their humorous and quirky splendor.
This is an entertaining and interesting black and white humour strip! In Vertical format!. By AeJaLove rated E
Super-powered humans battle each other as heroes and villains, and a man's family ends up as collateral damage. His response is to spend years building a robot family, and eventually a highly powerful supersuit which allows him to tangle with the supers. Healthy! His goal is to protect innocents, to save them from his family's fate- but his scope widens eventually. A great mix of action and drama! And a rare “caught this one almost too late to feature” - but over 200 pages to read anyway!

This comic is brought to us by the creator of the long-running (and much liked) journal comic Allan! Very polished (but nicely simple) art, and nice, funny stories about likable characters. Almost like vignettes of significant moments in those people's lives. Somehow a story of a webcam girl turns into one of long lost friends, and skinny-dipping turns sweet. Definitely rated M though- these comics have a good bit of mature (sex!) humor, and there's cartoonish body parts here and there. But that's more an enticement than a warning, right?

Tony is a student at the elite Rowan Academy, a school where teenagers who are developing their Quickening attend to learn how to… do Quickening stuff. He'd like to be a rebel, but he's really not cut out for the job. Instead of fighting (because what else are you gonna do in a weapon school?) he prefers to run away and he doesn't seem to have much talent (although he is in the elite school). Yvette is his serious, short-skirted friend, who seems to be among the school's most talented students but she is quick to get into fights which cause property damage. Great-looking and fun manga, 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!

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!

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!

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.
