This slice of life comic may be very easily relatable for underemployed Generation-Y millennials navigating the job market when faced with the joys of endless online job applications and tricky job interviews. The art is colored and drawn digitally with some photographs incorporated in the panels.

This is a type of comic and one from a class that we almost never feature: Spiritual. In God's Revelation, god takes on the form of a 13 year old boy, he explains to the audience how he controls the universe and then we move on to a retelling of the story of Adam and Eve… God's Revelation is a manga comic that humanises the god of Christian mythology and seeks to explain various apparent contradictions and contentions. While I as a reader (and maybe you to), do not share the religious viewpoint of the story, God's Revelation is clearly produced to a very high standard and the author has put a lot of thought into the ideas presented within it; which makes it worthy of a feature.
This is a black and white, spiritual manga comic. Read God's Revelation, by Ep1, rated M

Hello, Albertosaurus is a combination of all things great and awesome. It is based in Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada, in a world very similar, yet very different from our own. Our green-haired narrator and narrator's sister, Jepi, are prepared to set forth on a road trip adventure with their father. Fueled up on soda pop with a cooler packed to the brim with Coke, this fearless trio is ready to confront anything that might come their way…even if that means a towering Albertosaurus hot on their trail.
The art style has that very professional, colored with copic marker or watercolor paint look to it, but it can still be completely digital. The characters faces are so full of expressions. The friendly art style is reminiscent of cute letter stationary. The character designs are full of whimsy with simple black lines for all the arms and legs. The story is still in its early stages, but this is definitely a story that is worth reading from the beginning.

From the same creator who brought you Character Development, comes an endearing new story about real life as it happens. All Unicorns to Battle Stations is a personal autobiographical comic from the first person point-of-view of David “Gunwallace” Tulloch. It pulls back the curtain and gives us a peek into marriage, raising children, and the art of conversation.There are many instances in the comic that showcase the hysterical antics of children saying exactly what is on their mind, accompanied by figurative ideas drawn as literal interpretations. Additionally, there are post-dinner talks, random one-panel comics in between breaks, and Madison Todd: An Agent of God, used to poke fun at aspects of religion. Some of the conversations are so realistic that there is an honest, human like quality of this body of work that it feels as if we are eavesdropping on an intimate conversation between two adults.All the art in this comic uses digital ink and it fluctuates between colour and grey scale. The art style channels the 1950s Pop Art Movement with its clean lines while retaining realistic features for individual characters. Gunwallace is a writer by trade and a family man by heart and it shows in this comic.

In this comical retelling of “the Fall of Man” god is a bit of a bastard… well, we already knew that pretty much but not in quite such an entertaining fashion as this! Most of us know the story already so that adds spice to the retelling in this interpretation. I laughed out loud a couple of times! Watch as god creates the world, parties hard with the animals and then bombs out for the rest of the day… he's really got his priorities straight. This is a humour comic strip. It's drawn with pen and then digitally coloured. The style is very cartoony and stylised to enhance the silliness of the strip. I hope you enjoy the fall of god as much as I did!

A mechanical robot is only as smart as its creator. Mechaniko was assembled out of steel and electronics in Dr. Reverse's lab by the beautiful Professor Susan Cinquefoil. He is ready to be unveiled for the first time as the protector-knight in shining alloy that he was meant to be. The whole town has turned up for this special occasion including the lovestruck investor, Mr. Greenwattle, and the seemingly villainous character, Colonel Steelsquint. There is only one problem–Mechaniko comes with some mechanical difficulties.

This is a dramatic fantasy adventure. The writing is minimal but it does its job, setting the scene and the tone well. The art seems to be all digital, the colour certainly is anyway. It's drawn in an interesting style, sometimes very rough, but curiously reminiscent of the style of storytelling drawings from medieval Europe, which also somewhat matches the setting of the story, and this is why it caught my eye: A medieval tale come to life!
