Steel and Manitou tells a tale of the legendary Gtchi Manitou, a Great Spirit, embodied by a white horse with a feather in its mane. The stories are inspired by the Nêhiyawak (Plains Cree) Aboriginal legends from Saskatchewan, Canada. This tale begins when a young orphaned girl, Kassidy Kerr, finds herself in an audience for a traveling troupe of two Nêhiyawak stage performers, led by Vox, a story teller. Young Kassidy gets inspired by the tales and now has to listen to her Gtchi Manitou. A secret stowaway, cold desert nights, and a covered wagon. Kassidy Kerr is now seven years older and the story is just getting started!
The art style is very charming and the colour palette gravitates toward the reddish-orange side of the spectrum in the daytime scenes, so I am reminded of sunsets in the Old West. All the colours are filled in digitally.
If you are interested in plants, animals, humans, Gods, Ghosts, and Ghouls or just want to hear the tale of how the Buffalo gained its hump, read Steel and Manitou by ashtree house, rated T.
In the cold whiteness of Northern Alberta in the great winter nation of Canada there's a little girl who has a bad dream about a big blue man pierced with harpoons… in her town there's skulduggery, murder, blood on the snow. This is a fascinating cinematic comic! It's a very unusual story premise but it only gets better and better the more you read as the suspense builds and the story expands. The art is full colour, stylised realism, and the story is a Scifi action graphic novel. I highly recommend it. By Skweeee, rated M.

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.
