The Hated, part two: Heroes we hate

Last week I blathered on a bit about villain Protagonists. These are evil, or “bad” characters who get to be Protagonists!

But what about more traditional heroes, or supporting characters are written to be the “moral compass” or “voice of reason”, or just ...

The Hated, Part One - Villain Heroes

I've picked up all the “new” versions of the Archie universe and enjoyed them to different degrees for the most part. Sometimes there are a few laughs. Or some nice artwork. Or just the fun of seeing the characters ...

Timeliness vs Timelessness

Rogue from the X-Men encounters President Ronald Reagan!
(…who???)


Timeliness vs Timelessness

Some comics are very much “of the moment”, while others are more timeless.

Connecting to the events of the moment can be a worthy endeavor. The political satire of Jesus 2016 comes to mind. Webcomics are well suited ...

FEATURED COMIC -> Useless

Ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Oct. 12, 2016



This is a world where people have powers, become registered and work as superheroes. But what happens if you don't make the cut? If you have power, but not quite enough, or the right temperament to join the ranks of the heroes? You become useless, like poor Bonnie… she ...

Web VS Print

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Aug. 29, 2016


-Guest Post written by Prototype

I believe webcomics authors are often too eager to mimic our paper print cousin. We try to make our comics as close to a normal issue as possible with format and length when we in fact should embrace the stuff we can do better. We ...

QUACKCAST 285 - Ride the wave of the Anti-heroes

Art by Ozoneocean

Comedy anti-heroes are a great deal of fun. My faves are characters like Tankgirl and Flashman; they can be selfish, greedy, violent, lustful, out for their own needs first but they still manage to do the “right” thing and vanquish the bad guy along the way ...

Underdogs

Banes at 12:00AM, July 28, 2016



The Underdog is a staple of fiction. Protagonists, by and large, are Underdogs.
