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.
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.
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.
Oddly enough, people occasionally ask for link banners to link back to here, so here's a few you can choose from.
2013/12/29: Books are shipping!
As of a few days ago, Amazon is actually shipping out the books. So, if you were waiting for it to be really real before buying it, you can do so.
2013/12/20: Book status
I neglected to mention earlier but the books finally came from the printer, and the preorder batch is en route to Amazon right now. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like people will be receiving it until after Christmas (since it won't reach the warehouse until the 24th), so if you were planning on getting it for that purpose, I apologize. But considering that pretty much everything that could go wrong did, I'm just happy to have actually gotten the book out this year (primarily for tax reasons).
When I get back to Seattle I can also start doing direct sales to people, which I think works out better for everyone. I can also start on the ebook version, which I will probably sell via my Gumroad store, perhaps with an ebook+physical copy bundle option if Gumroad supports that.
2013/12/11: Books are on the way to me
Copies of Book 2 are finally en route to me. It's been a frustrating experience with way more delays than should have happened, and I'm sorry that it's unlikely that preorders will get to people by Christmas, but at least they'll be arriving soon.
