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.

2015/10/03: It's Inktober!

I'm going to try to draw at least one picture a day in October, because that seems like a good way to get out of my doldrums. Obviously I'm running a bit behind but I'll try to catch up.

Of course it turns out that Inktober is supposed to be about drawing in ink. Go figure. So uh. I'm really far behind.

My current list of excuses for not posting anything:

2015/08/10: Yikes

Sorry about my continued slow pace of updates. My wrists are still problematic, and my day job is taking a lot more of my energy than usual lately.

If you're in the Portland area (Oregon, not Maine), this weekend is a good time to meet up with me, as I'll be performing at the annual Song Fight! Live! show (Friday the 14th and Saturday the 15th), as well as going to a webcomics mini-meetup (Sunday the 16th).

And if you're in the Seattle area, pretty much any time is a good time to meet up with me. No occasion, I just live here.
