As Timeloss is still pretty new, it isn't fully clear what's going on… scenes are just long enough to give a few tantalizing hints before the setting is changed and readers are dropped into a new situation. Would ‘frustratingly interesting’ be a good description? The art is fantastic, and enough is revealed in the writing to make a reader incredibly curious as to what's going on and what will happen next. There appears to be a number of worlds involved, some sort of tragedy, and a few particularly interesting characters- if you're a reader who likes to get in at the beginning, then Timeloss bears watching!
If you are anything like normal people, you have a fond rememberance of a specific genre of book known as Choose Your Own Adventure. A Hard Boiled Detective is a hefty slice of nostalgia-flavored cake on a modern place setting. Use links in the author's comments to make your way through the story- at the risk of ending it early! (Easy enough to backtrack though, for you cheaters.) Help Mark Jock, the best darn detective in the city, manage a new partner and solve a difficult case (and be entertained by the humor and pure fun of it). Why aren't more people doing these?
My Thingie is a funky cool looking funny autobiographical comic by Azerisii. It's about him, gay stuff, fun stuff, serious stuff, general stuff… But basically it just LOOKS so great and it's a really interesting way to make a journal/blog/comic/thingie about someone's life. Fancy seeing the world from the perspective of a young gay British fellow? Well now you can!
-Rated M. There IS poop. -_-
In this place the last surviving carriers hide from the evil queen and her draconian regime. She denies them their magic and keeps the whole population in thrall. But rebellion is stirring, perhaps Echo and Lilly, a young carrier, Have a chance to join with the freedom fighters and find some hope of a better world?
The art is gloriously lush, in a fully painted style, and the exiting story dives straight into the action! Top fantasy comic!
Amelia is a rather unladylike lady, stifled by Victorian society, whose primary source of entertainment is consorting with low criminals and swindling her peers out of as much of their money as she can. She cannot abide her uncle, the family patriach (a boor and a great one for rules) but eventually her antics push him too far- and he contracts to have her murdered. Fortuitously, the man he's hired for the job is the boss of Amelia's closest lowlife friends, and she is forewarned… but will that do her any good? Funny story, charming art (with some lovely architecture/settings), and likable characters!
You HAVE to check out this comic. Comedy action at its most awesome! Bear must get revenge for his dead mate against the hordes of green, stinking zombies! Watch as bear fights like a big brown shaggy demon, using all the weapons he has at his disposal. I don't know what else to say about this except it'd make a cool cartoon. This is a funny cool colour action comic by Zaymac. Rated T+
A man finds himself in the desert, overlooking an outpost-city. Its name is the only thing he knows. This stylish post-apocalypse comic follows the fighter as he enters the city and tries to figure out who he is and just what is going on. He is joined by a curious and untrustworthy dancing robot who wants him to do a mysterious job…
Don't you love cat girls? I do. This is a world full of them!
It's a dark, stormy night. The Amana family is being slaughtered by the mysterious and savage Zara… This is a land where supernatural forces hold sway, gods intervene in the mortal realm though champions known as “Sekait”. Dark things are afoot!
The strength of The Legend of Setar is the artwork, it's phenomenal, Mutation's colour skills are gorgeous. It's like looking at a jewel.
Harkovast is an epic fantasy tale set in a land populated by various peoples and under threat of a dark and overwhelmingly evil force. All your favorite fantasy things are here, but Harkovast is… different. Consider this: The main character seems to be a knight, getting on in years, who occasionally forgets who he is, where he is, and what's going on. Facial scars show he has not once but twice just missed having his head sliced in half (he's missing various other bits of himself too), he yells Huzzah when he runs enemies through, and on top of it all, he's got a rather unnerving lazy eye. If that doesn't inspire your confidence, I don't know what will.
The Paper Heroes are a silly bunch of funny heroes. There's Shape, Meteor, Raven, Pirate, and others, all with there own special skills and comedic talents. There isn't much more to say about them really, it's a good looking humorous gag comic about silly superheroes. Highspeed comics has a great cartoony, bouncy style, good humour, and nice characterisation!
Anatta has already made waves here on DD by being a smart, fast-paced comic with a story to tell. Many details of Anatta's word are withheld- but we do know that it's more technologically advanced than ours, and struggling with the moral dilemmas that always come with knowing just a little too much. In a world where one person can swap minds with another, identity becomes a tricky issue and people get homesick for more than a bit of land. What kind of person is Alex, a woman who rents the use of her body to others?
With their world under attack by fleets of spider ships both Aya and Takeo try valiantly to defend it. That is until Takeo is harvested by the vicious spider robots. The loss of her beloved leave Aya saddened, but determined to protect her world and her people from the spider menace, however, not all the people of her world share the same goals… Meanwhile Takeo survives as a prisoner of the Spiders.
AyaTakeo is a full colour manga style story comic by Sonia Leon and by Lloyd Prentice. Rated T+
Living With Insanity is a gag comic written by David MH and currently drawn by Paul Salvi.
The strip is about a young guy called David and all the silly things that happen around him. He lives with a couple of girls as his flatmates, one's a witch. Oh, there's also a robot head and a cat. Gag comics about people's lives are pretty common on the net, but a few have something special… I love the dry humour and deadpan delivery here and David's art is super lovely! And it's Australian. :)
Randy is a boy with two arms. One of them is a robot arm, which he got when his inventor father's evil partner killed his father, took over the company, and had the father's invented robot arm grafted onto the wounded son he intended to cut out of any inheritance and also leave with the medical bills. Got it? Perhaps coincidentally (or perhaps not) Randy is very interested in building robots. The result is an adorable little fellow who used to try to kill people but doesn't any more. Meanwhile, Randy's best (girl) friend from childhood returns and is already getting the mack put on her by Randy's biggest rival. Drama! Cute, funny drama!
Tim is a poor little turtle. He's newly hatched and hankerin' for the sea! His little instincts tell him to push for the big blue ocean but no matter what he does or how hard he tries, he just can't seem to stay there for long!
This story is only just developing here, but I hope you'll look forward as much as I do to seeing how things progress and seeing if poor little Timothy ever does find his home in the sea.
This is a beautiful, charming tale. It's funny and cute. rated E for everybody!
Not everyone likes comics with a gritty story, huge plot, and message to send. Simpler comics just about people and their lives are also appealing (especially if they have art as pretty as Good Taste's). This is obviously a character-driven comic - they have clear, believable, interesting personalities and relationships and most of the story so far is about them interacting with each other. There's more to tell here which will be got to in its own good time- that may seem slow to some, but others may appreciate the lighter tone and the feeling that the writing hasn't been overworked. Mainly, it's just fun to read.
There's this poor GUY, he's just out to have some fun, you know? Maybe meet a nice chick, go back to her place and have some MORE fun… But it doesn't work out that way. Instead he ends up drinking all night and wakes up in a strange place, like you do. Except this is REALLY the wrong place. Maybe the wrong universe!
He ended up at the hub. And met some great people.
Beautifully, painstakingly detailed! Hyena Hell's work is reminiscent of the master etchers and draughtsmen of the 18th and 19th century. The story is a trip: Through Alice's looking glass into place that's strange, and yet strangely familiar.
Is ‘superhero horror’ a genre? Blood Reign and Devil Jack takes you back to the ‘90s indy comic days when the shelves were stocked with fresh takes and new experiments in style and content. It may remind you of Spawn with its demons, curses, and supernatural powers. Most pages are lushly colored using traditional media- and the black and white pages are so skillful you won’t miss the colors. Fantastic art, a wide array of strange and interesting characters, and loads of action- don't miss out.
After the vigilante Blackhawk dies, his sidekick Canary (Wade) is left mentorless and super-wealthy. Wade isn't sure what to do with his life now. He resented being Canary but it's all he knows… so rather than do something sensible, he dons a new costume (Acrobat), subjects himself voluntarily to public high school, and tries to keep himself busy. Superteams don't want him, his schoolmates don't like him, and he just can't decide whether he's doing the right thing. A fun array of heroes and villains, Deadpool-like comebacks, engaging art and more-than-just-superhero story make this comic tops! The art is rough the first few pages, but vastly improves very quickly, so steady on.
Tozzer! It's a funny, well drawn, nice looking little humour comic. This is how the authors describe it:
Welcome to the world of Tozzer! Whether you're a fan of films, games, TV shows or pop culture in general, you'll find something to love in this sick, twisted, land of opportunity.
That's pretty accurate. It's quite funny and takes a few well aimed swipes at various things from movie making, video games, even to humour webcomics! I think you'll agree that this is a tasty treat. It's on the short side too so it won't overwhelm you at this stage. ;)
Daqueran is a handsome fellow (and a bit of a jerk) who travels the lands slaying dragons, bathing in springs, brushing off girls, doing deeds for unicorns, chatting it up with naked sirens, and carrying around his companion Tik (a tiny, adorable chameleon octopus). The comic is in its early days so the story is still developing but it's clear there's a war brewing with the dragons, a fearsome and well-drawn lot. This classic fantasy comic is gorgeously illustrated digitally and with watercolors. Each fantasy creature has been individually designed, often with a refreshing take on the standard.
Humanity fights its last global war to decide which evolutionary road it will follow… Darkness or Light. And a mysterious woman will become the new messiah!
Novusgenesis Hype is an awesome future war Sci-Fi action comic featuring battle scenes, funky mecha, wry humour and one of the sexiest heroines on Drunk Duck! This is one exciting, good looking, hardcore piece of eye and mind candy. Mostly a “guy” comic though so beware. Translated from the original Spanish by its creator Scorpious (Rigo Jimenez), Novusgenesis Hype is well past due for featuring!
Hatpire doesn't pretend to be anything other than a cute wordless comic about the adventures of a vampire who wears a hat- which is what makes it so enjoyable. Hatpire has many rather tame dreams and adventures (such as becoming a pimp-pire, building a treehouse, visiting Gramp-pire, and the story of how he got his hat), two good friends in hat-cat and plague-doctor-bird-guy, and of course a great hat. It's all guaranteed to be very adorable.
Stylish and fun, Kung Fu Komix is an hilarious retro-tastic martial arts actionfest. It has krak, punch, bamm, boom, and DOOM. Curtis and Luis save Alex from ninjas, and decide to help him rescue his girlfriend from the bad guys, who just happen to have an army of ninja and are themselves kung fu masters. Will Kung-Fu Town ever be the same again???! You down? Like a mamma-jamma! Really, I'm not kidding about it being hilarious.
Brad Stone, world-famous actor, goes from movie-hero to the real thing overnight. As he starts down his path as Relik, a dark superhero with a past shrouded in mystery, he quickly discovers the consequences - and risks - that come with his new-found abilities, and that nothing, not even victory, is guaranteed when there are no “retakes”.
Retake is a very exciting and dark superhero comic done by both SympleSymon and MrHades. It features a surfeit of action and heroic deeds.
