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.

2016/04/29: Well the wrist pain is back

But I think it's more important for my mental health that I work on comics instead of simply lamenting the fact I'm not working on comics.

2016/03/25: Time continues to pass at an alarming rate

So, wow, a lot's been going on in my life.

I've finally come out at large about my gender stuff and am properly, publicly transitioning. This has had the interesting side effect of greatly reducing (although not eliminating) my wrist pain — turns out a lot of it was just due to my constant internal tension! Same with my anxiety! GO FIGURE!

I'm also really busy at work, both with a bunch of stuff regarding transition and with my actual day job. And I'm feeling great.

I also have so many other projects that take precedence over comics right now. Which sucks because I still really want to get back to comics (especially Lewi!) but at least it's sucking for a generally positive reason now.

Thank you everyone who's still holding on and checking for updates. (I assume you are just still subscribed to my RSS feed or something.)

(Oh also you can feel free to read an article about my medical transition, if you like.)

2016/03/06: ugh wrists

I know you're sick of hearing this but I'm sick of having to write this. Ugh. I just want to make comics.
