Two friends known to each other as Liv and Indigo create unusual and imaginative plays together that they act out in the forest, complete with amazing costumes. We catch them in the middle of one such performance, each dressed in fantastic fashion. we learn that the next performance will be based on Liv's dream… but not only that, it will be a complete recreation in an attempt to reach a revelation. Out of the Blue is an interesting and unusual comic with a slightly unconventional story and characters. It's set in a world a little unlike our own where the colour of bird speech bubbles has a specific meaning. I would class this as a fantasy story! The art is all drawn with pen on paper and painstakingly coloured with watercolour paints and scanned, which gives it a unique look and feel!

This is an introspective character driven story, with some drama and a dash of humour. The art is all digital, featuring creative panelling and a unified, pleasing colour palette.

This is a hilarious and touching take on the classic Robert Louis Stevenson story of Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde. It really is a very well written piece of work! I found it a real page turner and laughed out loud many times. The art is heavily stylised and a bit rough at times, but it is consistent and the characters stay on-model. It's drawn with a pen and then digitally coloured.

Mermaids have always been the half-human, half fish sea creatures that lure unsuspecting sailors with their beauty and charm until they show their teeth behind a wicked smile and drag them into the water. The mermaids in Ice Massacre are not very different, with a man at the start suffering a similar fate. This story centers on Meela, a warrior woman, who is one of the strongest fighters in her class with bravery and endurance that outshines her peers. Her only downfall is saving everyone who needs help (which is only a problem if you know what might be lurking in the waters).
This webcomic is based on the best-selling Mermaids of Eriana Kwai trilogy written by Tiana Warner. April Pierce is the illustrator and Rachel “Tuna” Petrovicz is the colorist. The three have come together to make a comic that is very professional and digitally colored.

Monkey Nukes is a very enjoyable story comic. Once you start it you'll soon be engrossed in the lives and the struggles of the characters as they go about their days, bursting with potential and secrets in 1980s west London… I could go on but Simonmackie explains it far, far better himself:
“‘Monkey Nukes’ set in West London 1984 tells the story of the birth of Scottish-themed vegetarian hang-out the Monkey Nukes and the bedsitter society that surrounds it. A directionless young language teacher’s loose-end life is further unsettled when the cause of a bitterly remembered heartbreak returns only to fall into his best friend’s arms. Adam desperately needs to get her back. Or does he? Maybe some other destiny awaits him as he stumbles through the following confusion of modelling kits, murder and cappuccinos, narcotics and Walkmans, nuclear war and Betamax, love and friendship, beer and cigarettes and more beer … The story, script and artwork are all collaborations between graphic artists Simon Mackie and Ben Rowdon who have collaborated on a number of web-comics, comic strips, CD covers and illustrations since first meeting in 1984.”
The art style is in a stylised comic strip form, pen and ink with digital colour. Monkey Nukes is a marvellous snapshot of the 1980s with a solid gold ring of authenticity. Great art and an excellent writing style!

Quasi and Psudo are good friends, but that does not take away all the nervous energy of pacing around the room when sending multiple texts to each other or the hours spent getting ready to see each other. When they get together, they do magic and science tricks, which would be safer if their winged rabbit and odd chicken did not eat the fireball flowers, Burnice and Combust-opher. Quasi and Psudo have such a great friendship that they have all-nighters and wake up late for work the next day, but it does not prevent any future panic attacks.
The art is drawn with yellow-orange ombre backgrounds and black line-art. The creator, 1rd2th3st, is also the mastermind behind the black and white comic, CLINT, that was featured in 2015. Quasi and Psudo is drawn in a very different style, but still has much of the brilliant qualities from the previous comic.

Noako is an unusual lady, slightly… draconic… but she looks human enough. She lives with her best friend Ebony, a vamp who also happens to be a vampire, a very slutty one. And then comes along young Holly, a red-headed lesbian, to be their lodger. Along the way they meet handsome Spike, a sometime hobo and now a sexy bartender. Together they make a pretty cool crowd, sharing their ups and downs but NOT all their secrets! Completely unrelated is a sort of slice of life, semi-dramatic, relationship based sitcom. That's a good broad description but it undersells the comedy aspect: It's VERY funny. Ebony is my favourite character, she completely owns her salaciously ridiculous behaviour. She's lusty, lascivious, callous, snobby and hilarious.
This is a long running comic that's been in the works since at least 2011 and in that time the art has improved a LOT, so expect some rough work at the beginning and great art in the more recent pages. The art is done in pencil, with digital inking and colour. The writing is consistently good throughout.
