LINT - It starts with prettyboy elf meeting badass midget dwarf,
and it just gets better after that. I have no idea if "LinT"
is supposed to stand for something, or if it refers only to the white
stuff you find on your clothes... but either way, this is priceless.
DARKEN - In a worrrrrlllld ruuuuled by the forces
of eeee-villll, this motley band of unlikely companions are...
the evilest mofos of all.
THE ORDER OF THE STICK - "A paladin never compromises."
"Does a paladin ever remove the stick from their ass?" "No.
It's a class feature."
TRUE MAGIC - A quest to overthrow tyranny, or to throw off whiny
zombies. ("Gauthicus B. Schönen" is a perfectly respectable
THE LONGEST SOJOURN - So there was this king who tried have his
dead wife resurrected... which really only succeeded in creating huge
problems for the priest who had to perform the ritual, the guy who
was supposed to be sacrificed in the ritual, and the mage-hunter hired
to track them down after they ran away
ROZA AND THE HORSE PRINCE - The
exquisitely colorful adventures of a girl with flammable blood and
a snooty magical horse. I love the expressiveness of the characters;
the horse prince has no dialogue but his face tells you exactly what
WHAT BIRDS KNOW - You know those movies where a bunch of unsuspecting
teenagers go to a remote place to have fun, and you just know that
any minute some monster/ghost/axe murderer is going to show up and
start picking them off one by one? This feels kind of like that, only
in a fantasy setting. Yay!
BETWEEN TWO WORLDS - Like What Birds Know, starts out with down-to-earth,
likeable characters and a leisurely pace, and slowly starts going
into scary territory. Boys and girls, don't go walking through mysterious
portals! Sure, you might find a peaceful realm of wonder and beauty,
but you might also find a hellish wasteland with evil little skeleton
bird things. Just stay home and play video games.
EARTHSONG - "Is it weird to have a fairy named 'Tengu'?
Isn't that a bit like having a kappa named 'Unicorn' or a dragon named
'Manananggal'?" ...This is a question you probably won't
be asking yourself as you enjoy Earthsong.
TALISMEN: RETURN OF THE EXILE - Incredibly gorgeous art and character
KAGEROU - As usual, a normal guy gets transported to a magical
world to be a hero; only, as it turns out, the guy in question is
completely ABnormal. Dark, funny, angsty and complicated, with
cute yet twisted characters, graphic violence and adult situations;
which means that mature readers should enjoy this comic at a safe
distance from tiny children and sweet old ladies.
THE CURIOUS ADVENTURES OF ALDUS MAYCOMBE - The new comic from
the creator of Feyenne,
shaping up to be quite curious indeed.
DIRECTIONS OF DESTINY - Zephan just wants to be the coolest,
best, most admired student at his prestigious school, but a certain
girl keeps getting in his way... not to mention the little matter
of students suddenly being attacked by mysterious forces with motives
WITHERSHINS - Beautiful painted sepia-toned Victorian creepiness.
GUNNERKRIGG COURT - The somewhat spooky adventures of an implacable
little girl in a not-so-ordinary boarding school.
Deliciously weird and unspeakably awesome.
9TH ELSEWHERE - The sometimes cutesy, sometimes bittersweet
tale of an angsty teenage writer and her bumbling muse as they go
traipsing through her subconscious, searching for the way out.
FLATWOOD - A young man wakes up with a fragmented memory in
a nightmarish place that's both familiar and alien. Seriously creepy
and surreal; leaves you wondering what the heck is going on, and
eager to keep reading and find out.
5IDEWAYS - A few survivors in a scary, surreal world where the
laws of physics appear to have taken a permanent holiday.
SHADOW OF A DOUBT - The lives of various citizens of a city
that used to be a circle of Hell. Turns out Hell on Earth isn't
such a bad old place to live.
GO FISH - A down-and-out god needs the help of a theologist
to found a new religion and survive. Instead, he gets an atheist
icthyologist. This would lead to wacky hijinks, except that the
god in question is actually evil and really creepy.
GRAVITY - I love the fact that I honestly have no idea where
this story is going to go from chapter to chapter, or even what
category it falls under. I mean, it starts out with a great big
Journey to Hell, then next chapter it's doing slice-of-life drama.
I just know that it's good.
SCARY GO ROUND - "After a certain number of stupid questions,
a sleep-over becomes a murder-over."
THUNDERSTRUCK - Two very different sisters embark on a journey
to shed light on their mysterious family history, and get caught
between various factions of angels, magic users, and other weirdoes.
I like the character writing here; in any other story, the psycho
religious zealot grandmother would have been a two-dimensional villain,
but here she's my favorite freaking character.
CROWFEATHERS - Demons, gods, and other unsavory figures in an
Old West setting, with awesome B/W art. Also with some disturbing
violence, meaning this is another great comic for mature readers!
SHADES OF GREY - There's Good, there's Evil, and then there's
Angsty. Gorgeous character designs and grayscale art. Also for mature
HARU-SARI - A young woman has a mysterious terminal illness,
and her only hope of a cure lies with brilliant but unusual doctor.
Oh, and the woman has cat ears and the doctor is an elf.
ICE - From the creator of Demonology
101. In Dystopian Future England, it's... cold. Really
cold. And sinister plots are afoot!
GET MEDIEVAL - A bunch of people from outer space get marooned
on Earth in the 14th century. Hijinks ensue! If you enjoy things
like Blackadder, you should get a kick out of this.
A STRANGER IN PARADISE - An interesting and engaging sci-fi
manga vaguely reminiscent of Fritz Lang's Metropolis meets... something,
only not really. What do I know? Just check it out for yourself!
SATURNALIA - Stylish and high-quality art, quirky characters,
humor, action, mystery, and intrigue. Sysreq is a surprisingly well-realized
main character... actually, he's a complete jerk, but you learn
to love him. He's freaking Batman after all.
LEVEL - A futuristic setting that is Not What It Seems, though
it is insanely detailed and beautifully colored.
A MIRACLE OF SCIENCE - He's a no-nonsense detective trained
to track down mad scientists; she's a perky Martian psychologist
linked to a planet-sized collective intelligence. They fight crime!
One of those rare comics that is not only smart, but makes you feel
smarter just for reading it.
THE FRONT - Gaelin kicks butt. I <3 Gaelin. You must think
me terribly shallow for liking the obvious prettyboy fangirlbait
character, but... I DON'T CARE. <3 <3 <3 Oh and
by the way, The Front is a great comic, yadda yadda yadda. Gaelin!
The first storyline is completed, but there's going to be another
one sometime in the future.
THE NON-ADVENTURES OF WONDERELLA - Rocketed to Earth from
a dying world, Wonderella developed fantastic powers. But they were
lame, so a vaguely Greco-Romanic godhead gave her better ones. She
cannot fly, but she can totally jump hella high.
DINOSAUR COMICS - Somehow, a comic about overly verbose pixelated
dinosaurs doing the exact same thing every day is one of the greatest
comics on the internet.
PENNY AND AGGIE - Aggie's all right, but Penny is the best!
RED STRING - Contains Love Polygons, Family Issues, Misunderstandings,
Startling Coincidences, Nasty Rivalry, and True Friendship.
