In the relatively near future, a policeman agrees to assit on a difficult and disturbing case, chasing a brutal criminal that has eluded him before. But how does this lead to him murdering his own son…? Professional level art will draw you in, but the compelling story will make you stay.
Meet Teddy Atwater, a kid who only did enough to scrape by… until a sports injury meant he couldn't even manage that. Now he has to repeat the sixth grade, which is no easy task when you have the friends that Teddy has. Although the art style is simple, it's appealing, the characters are really distinct and enjoyable, and there is lots of background and supporting information for those who like a little more meat to their comics.
Jaina's first day at her new boarding school is a drag. No one likes her, and the feeling is mutual. Jaina knows she is different from her schoolmates- but she doesn't quite realize just how different until she's captured by three weirdos in costumes, has to escape a run-down hick cabin in the woods, and sought after by witches and demons. Turns out she's probably the normal one.
It all starts when Talon and Isadora are interrupted in a delicate moment… by Isadora's husband, the Lord Governor of the city. Luckily for the handsome Talon this isn't an unusual happening, and he escapes. Unluckily for Isadora, she's now banished to a convent. Oops! A rather unlikely assembly of characters sets out to save her… Some early filler, but steady on - lovely art, great story, humorous and fun! (Definitely rated M!)
Border City (built by 12 legendary superheroes) was intended as a haven, a place where the darkness of the world outside would be kept outside. But all is not well within Border City's walls- Evil is still at work. The comic has wonderful art with great attention to detail. It's the enjoyably puzzling characters and story that make Border City what it is, however.
You never knew Seattle was so… colorful. Or dangerous. In The Emerald City, the men are muscled and the women wear microskirts, the bad guys are monstrous psychos with cool hair, and people die left and right in some pretty gruesome ways. It's not all random violence (though some is, like at the wings joint…), this is all connected to events 11 years ago.
A trio of fairly bubble-headed terrorists breaks into a high security compound to steal the time travel project Kokiro. They DO have a reason for wanting to go to the past (maybe) and although they seem to get in a lot of fights, they are (sort of) getting some kind of job done. If you're looking for a colorful, whimiscal, funny comic with lots of flailing arms and strange facial expressions, check this one out!
Dirtheads is a comic about three twenty-something guys doing their part to cut the crap in the world. Gooch goes on a quest for reimbursement and reveals the ‘pretend’ service practices of modern businesses. Vince starts dating ‘a reader’ that he tries to impress by sounding more intelligent than he is, and finds that things work better when he's not putting on an act. And Manny… well he's just an overeducated loser with high expectations.
Inept police, inept villains… is anyone in How Unfortunate capable of doing their jobs? Let's hope not, because things are pretty funny the way they are. Part cop movie, part Powers, part Naked Gun- read about what happens when a team of strangely powered (and poorly named) baddies goes up against a couple of reluctant cops and their also-reluctant ex-baddie super-powered partners. (Sounds complicated, but it's not!)
Why is it so hard for people in love to just love each other? Making decisions based on their perception of the other's best interests, or ignoring the one better for you because you like the other better, or not taking someone seriously… It's all a bit of a mess really. Nothing Really Serious is a comic about the frustrations of love when the participants aren't on the same page. Lovely art too!
Like several other great pieces of media, Manifestations starts with an awesome plane crash. Things only get more interesting from there. The creator of Devoid Of Life brings us a terrifying story of ghosts, monsters, resurrected cats, and other wild and scary things crawling around behind the back of reality (although ‘reality’ is a questionable concept, here). Smart, spellbindng, and looks amazing!
Meet Sarah, a girl who is constantly under pressure from her family to find a boy and fall in love with him. Just one problem- she fancies girls. What's Sarah to do? Her new friend Janey invites her out for some fun, but Sarah can hardly enjoy it as the entire time she's wondering whether she should tell Janey how much she really likes her… unfortunately romance isn't the only thing in her life that is difficult for Sarah.
Intergalactic love and war on the beaches of Hawaii… as Wizer gives free surfing lessons to blonde bombshell Kona (who is interested in more than a 'beach bum, to his dismay), spaceships battle in the stratosphere above them. Forgive the excitable punctuation early on, because this comic looks absolutely lovely- especially the water- and has a pretty interesting story developing.
Military and psychic rescue teams arrive too late to save Lancelot unit, who are found gruesomely dead in a mansion infested with paranormal dangers. It doesn't take long for them to realize they're in way over their heads…. Compelling storyline and amazingly detailed art will remind you of Hellboy and Guy Davis's BPRD work. The black-and-white style is a treat to look at, and you should see the color pages!

The police are always after him- at the beginning of this comic, they've almost caught him. A very odd guardian angel comes to his rescue just in time to save him from the police and from another very odd man in water-filled platform shoes. Lots of great fight scenes ensue! When things calm down, Leo learns that he hasn't quite been as alone as he thought. The guardian angel was sent by his father… Zeus.

It all started on the fateful day that Epsilon1-F4240 (he calls himself Humphry now) had his turn to empty the rubbish bin at Regalia Accountancy Inc. On this fateful trip to the basement, he acquired a hat. The hat changed everything. Who knew that robots led such complicated lives? The art style in this comic is pleasingly simple, and the writing shines with humor and wit.
Thog is a caveman who was nearly killed by a mammoth stampede caused by an alien probe. The aliens felt responsible, so what did they do? They fixed him, of course. Now Thog isn't like any of the other cave men anymore. He's special. He does his best, but it just isn't good enough… Thog Infinitron is a hilarious comic of the first caliber. Why aren't you reading it yet?

Welcome to the hallowed realm of Asgard, where the Norse pantheon hasn't quite grown up yet. Thor needs to be baby-sat, Loki gets in hot water with dadlike blood-brother Odin, and blind Hod can't ogle the Valkyries with the rest of his friends. Meanwhile, Odin's sacrificed eye (given to obtain the secret knowledge of how to stop the baby's crying) is plotting revenge… as well as it can anyway, being held up by the trolls, giants, dwarves, and svartelves…

He'd love to sort it all out, but a zombie horde has just entered town, and he is Sheriff after all…
There are aliens behind the tavern. Hitler's grandmother has taken ill. A talking pencil is running for mayor. And Panic River's nuttiest citizen is taking the rap for a murder he didn't commit. David A J Berner calls Roy Barley, “A surreal carnival of the grotesque.”
