Hephaestus - the son of Zeus and Hera, the Greek god of smithing and crafting, and a pretty laid-back workman with a few stories to tell. Although the art is pretty rough, the writing is fun. The Greek pantheon has always been full of bizarre stories like a mountaintop soap opera, and this comic focuses particularly on our pal Heph. (We can call him that because he's married to Aphrodite.) His life isn't all fun and games though. There's hardly any, in fact. There's a lot of work, he feels underappreciated, and actually he was rejected from Olympus as a baby, raised by a lady only pretending to be his mom, and coerced into coming back to Olympus later. So he's got some family drama. It's not all bad though. There are perks to being a god.

There's this funky new comic shop called Blitz! It has Manga, hentai, normal western comics, card game things and all the rest of the stuff people like to go to such places for. The owners are Ruby and her husband Xander. These two are competitive, funny, fun-loving people. On the way they acquire Juri (and her terribly weak bladder), then Dante and Abby.
This is a funny character driven comedy. So if you like the whole weebo culture, comics, manga, conventions and fun then Blitz will appeal to you. The art is bright, bold, colourful, and engagingly manga styled and the story flows at a fast and light pace. There are many pages to get into so this is a work you can enjoy for a good long time.

This lovely comic is just starting out, but it's so impressive I think people should know about it as early as possible! Illuminia is an atmospheric story about a conflict between light and dark. In a middle-eastern market, a grotesque demon of the dark crawls from a well. Luckily, a guardian of the light is present. The Illuminant makes quick work of the demon but not before it steals the soul of a child for its master. Gorgeous art, a compelling world, I have high hopes for this one!
This is the second attempt at this comic subject, the first being hosted elsewhere. One day a college student hears a noise in an alleyway and ends up saving a small kitten, little does he know the comedy and drama that will ensue… Spoiler: shape-changing cat girl! Cat Nine is a funny little comedy comic strip in an easy to read strip format. The art style as well as the plot style are solidly manga and are no worse off for that, they follow the form well and the naughty semi-humour style comes across nicely.
Be warned, there is some pseudo-nudity here, but it's really pretty safe.

Reed has spent his youth enjoying his life to the full. Funny and athletic- Reed has never wanted for friends, but even in a crowded room he has always felt alone. Today, on his 27th birthday, Reed finds himself drawn to a strange woman, and dark secret his parents can no longer hide…
The newest comic by rana (of The Tainted) is the story of a young man with a hectic life, who encounters a mysterious and kind of frightening woman… is this a romance or a horror?
This featured comic was brought to me by the fantastic kawaiidaigakusei:
The story is about a woman sniper. The way she found herself in that occupation came from a traumatic childhood and a good for nothing father. She is conflicted at one moment on the job because she lets her feelings get in the way of her work and misses a clean shot.
We learn all this from a man being interrogated by two beautiful women in a small room. He's hoping to play for time…
The art syle is similar to the animated part of Kill Bill. It epitomizes Film Noir and the art is pretty gorgeous. The creator definitely puts a lot of thought and attention into each page. It earns its Mature rating because of the gun usage, and the scenes of the sniper's childhood.

It's the post-apocalypse. The world above is a vaporized and irradiated nightmare, for all the survivors know. This comic is the story of two of these survivors, who have found shelter in a luxury bunker under a mountain in Arizona. These survivors… are muppets.

The art style is crisp, clean and cute. The characters are very well designed and drawn, the colours are beautiful and warm, Equsopia is one good looking comic! The writing style is action adventure fantasy, it's engaging and fast paced. This one will keep you wanting more!

Closely guarded secrets and old foes threaten their friendships and their lives as they attempt to live peacefully in a used book store. A complex, noir-ish drama and a longstanding DD favorite!
Eternity Complex is a very complicated story! Young Fae comes from Earth to a new strange land, just dropped in like a fish out of water into an alien new place. This new world is actually very old it turns out and Fae has a destiny there she has no idea about. Accompanied by two people whose motives she's very unsure about, cynical Adrik and empathetic Enya , she's lead deeper and deeper into this new place and its mysteries.

The art here is digitally coloured; lustrous, warm, and textured, with highly stylised characters. The writing style is sometimes hard to follow, a lot is left out and left unsaid, but if you stick with it things all make sense after a while.

Welcome to the Beluga Weekly, a family-friendly weekly comic about a bunch of doofy animals being silly (and sometimes a bit thick). There's a little bit of jabbing at modern culture, a little bit of insight into doofy animal life, and lots of bright color! A cute comic just right for a rainy day. (Or other days too.)
Josh is the Don of Kelaps Residence at Wareham University in the great white land of Canada, (America's furry hat). He's not a Canadian though, he's from that great big country of people south of the Canadian border… Initially there are some pretty ridiculous culture differences between him and his “friends”, it only gets funnier and crazier from there!
The art style here is Pixel-art, similar to sprite comics, but the art is original and the figures were never ever animated sprites, so the artist isn't limited by copyright or the restrictions on the original art style and repertoire of library of cells.
Don Josh is a hilarious comedy comic strip, updated frequently. There are over a thousand pages so dive in!

Alexandra Carter has had a rough couple of months. If you call isolation, torture, and being coerced to confess to a huge crime she didn't commit ‘rough.’ She's a tough nut to crack though, and after not saying a peep that whole time, something her captor says sets her off. It's time for vengeance! Turns out she's got some people on her side, although it seems even with a missing arm and eye she's still one of the most dangerous things around. This is looking like it will be a somewhat dark affair…
A dangerous force has been discovered in the universe, a force out to annihilate anything in its path… A confederation of aliens are the only thing that stands in its way. They've come to earth to give the gift of hyperevolution, superpowers, to a random few, in the hope they'll be able to slow down the ravening menace. …and stop greg from making the biggest mistake of his young life in the process!

Boy Phaff presents his take on a world populated with para-sapiens (or ultra-heroes), in the form of Snapshots and short stories. There's only a few for now, but you get a good feel for the comic already! Fun character designs, a bit of comedy (with a few tongue-in-cheek references to existing superhero stuff), and just a tiny tad of darkness.
There's A LOT going on in Typical Strange, many story threads, because Banes is an author's author who loves his stories! The twists, turns and very strange side tracks are the best part of typical strange, you really never know where things are going next, but you do know it'll be somewhere funny! Oscar is a pretty normal guy, working daily at a video movie place. TK is an acerbic nerd, Penelope, his imposing gentle giant sister, has a crush as big as herself on Oscar, who doesn't quite return her feelings… Wade, Harley, Abigail and more share their crazy adventures.
The art is gloriously bright digital colour, anatomy isn't strong but characterisation IS! The story style is mystery, action adventure, slice of life comedy, with occasional horror thrown in for kicks.

The best re-tellings of fairy tales are those which take the original story and twist it around to tell a whole other story without sacrificing the original. Demon's Mirror is one of those! harrodeleted has really put his (her?) stamp all over this story based around the Snow Queen. Modern, funny, a bit spooky, looks amazing - this comic has lots of personality! Even if Cezar is a bit… well, what do you expect? He's a demon.
Do you remember waking up excited early on Saturday morning, turning on the TV when it was all quiet and everybody was asleep, jussssst in time for your fave Saturday morning cartoons? For me it was Yogi Bear, Wacky Races, The Superfriends, The Justice League, Robotech, The Transformers, Jem and the Holograms, He-Man, The Gummie Bears… and even Dexter's Lab and Spongebob Squarepants. Man I ALWAYS loved getting up for Saturday morning cartoons!
Well that's the sort of thing Royduncan100 was going for with “Saturday Morning”.
You may remember this cartoon savant from The Villain Next Door? Well this intimidating genius of skill and self promotion has been busying himself away on this brilliantly coloured, highly stylised, cartoony masterpiece for about a year now. Just dip in anywhere and sample this madness, I assure you you'll be rewarded with some special stuff.

Matthew is a young Christian teen who has a rather unfortunate morning. He gets mugged on the way to school by a bigger kid, and even gets shot at. He's a bit overdramatic about it… in general he's a bit of a baby, really! No one seems to care about the whole thing other than his mom, though. A bit later, he's forced to go along to a school volunteering event at an orphan's home. It turns out his mugger is in residence. Good thing Matthew has his mom there to take care of things like a grown-up! A somewhat silly story, with lovely precise art with memorable characters!
