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.

2015/08/10: 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.

2015/06/16: So out of shape

so out of practice

2015/06/08: Yes my wrists still suck

Physical therapy: helpful

Working 100+ hours a week (due to the album): less helpful

But hey the album is done and (still) available for preorder and it'll drop on June 14, which as long-time readers should know is my birthday, and it is my gift to you. Well, if getting a gift normally means having to pay $7 for it. Whatever.
