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.

2015/01/22: Possible schedule slip

Not that there's anything "official" about my posting schedule by any means, but this weekend I'm participating in a game jam and probably won't have time to work on comics. If you're local to Seattle and like working on games, you could always sign up and be a part of this!

I'll probably be focusing on music, and I'll probably bring my cello. Because there's always room for cello.

2015/01/22: Some comics that are pretty cool

Pretty Cool Webcomics was nice enough to review me. I do wish that they'd chosen a newer Unity strip to headline with, but oh well. I like that reviewers like this exist and aren't afraid to actually say nice things.

Anyway, I've found a whole bunch of other great webcomics I didn't know about through that blog, so definitely check them out!

2015/01/05: Hello, Lewi!

I figured I should start another new series so that I can get tired of it and go back to Unity.

Or maybe I'll enjoy doing this one for a while.
