FEATURED COMIC --> Children of the Gods

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, July 11, 2018



What happens when ordinary people suddenly become massively super-powered, possessed of abilities well outside of the dreams of any normal person?

The Sheet of Glass and Other Tropes

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, June 8, 2018



Tropes aren’t bad. In fact, they are a useful and, at times, necessary shorthand that creators, particularly in the webcomic field, can wield to enhance their work. J Hillis Miller posited a trope as, “… the use of figurative language, via word, phrase or an image, for artistic effect.”

I'm not generally a fan of ‘spoofs’ or parodies. There are a few greats of course, like Young Frankenstein, but even the well-regarded ones like the Naked Gun series back in the day aren't ones I was ever crazy about. There are some funny jokes and good performances ...

The Sports Story and a Pitch

Banes at 12:00AM, March 10, 2016



I had an idea for an upcoming story in my comic. It came from real life, in a way. I've noticed that I'm really, really good at rock, scissors, paper. Like, I almost never lose. So a tale in the near future will feature one of my characters ...
