Good comics to read

This is just a tiny subset of the comics I read, focusing on the ones that I feel are particularly excellent and which you probably haven't heard of. They're in roughly alphabetical order, more or less.

Decrypting rita: Dreams, reality, what's the difference?

Endtown: A post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with post-mutagenic creatures.

Modest Medusa: A silly-but-serious story about a young gorgon and a bridge between worlds.

Monster Pulse: Kids get super powers and a lesson in moral ambiguity.

The Non-Adventures of Wonderella: The life and times of the raddest and best superhero ever, when she feels like it.

Rusty and Co.: Three classic D&D monsters take the adventure into their own hands.

Sacred Grounds: Supernatural creatures running a coffee shop.

Secret Life of a Journal Comic: What it's like to be Ty Halley.

Three Panel Soul: Journal Autobiographical Inspired by actual events.

Yellow Peril: Client relations, race relations, relation relations.

Comic-oriented weblogs

Artpatient: Your webcomic is atypical and you should feel atypical.

Luprand's Webcomic Musings: Honest webcomic reviews, without the incessant posturing or snark of others.

Other resources

Comic Rocket: A great online comic reader app, which helps to track comics and also lets you create archive-catchup RSS feeds. Might actually be better for comic reading than subscribing by RSS!

Webcomics Nation: A decent no-frills free webcomic hosting site, with a much better community than the other well-known ones.

Blambot: Pretty good comic lettering/effect/title fonts, many of which are free for non-commercial use.

FontStruct: Flash app; make your own stylized fonts. Surprisingly powerful, albeit within limitations.

2015/04/19: Still on break

I need at least another week before I can start drawing again. Sorry.

2015/04/16: Still on break

My wrists are even more terrible than usual lately, but I'm still drawing simple things (obviously). I have an appointment with an orthopedist on Friday who will hopefully have some ideas about what to do, and if I just need to take a leave of absence from my day job that's doable. Of course that means not being able to work on Lewi, either, which is frustrating for me because I really want to work on it. Argh.

Meanwhile, I ended up not liking the Surface Pro 3 after all (contrary to my previous news post), and ordered a Wacom Cintiq Companion 2. Hopefully that'll work out a lot better.

As always I'm accepting guest art and guest strips and so on, and I have stuff for sale. Please check it out!
