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.
2015/11/11: Same old same old
Yadda yadda sorry for not updating yadda yadda yadda
my art tag on Tumblr has some new stuff (mostly Undertale fanart these days) but mostly I've been busy wallowing in a desire to work on comics but no ability to. Current excuse list:
- Changed teams at work and am trying to ramp up on a project
- [insert usual thing about wrists]
- Holidays, seasonal depression, etc. all upon me
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.
2015/09/27: Oh god I am so terrible at this
My current list of excuses for not posting anything:
- Usual wrist stuff
- Bronchitis that got really bad for a bit and is still lingering
- Anxiety and depression because of a bunch of stuff (mostly due to the above)
- Was busy with a relationship that was taking up a lot of my spare time (but it's over now)
- I keep getting too distracted by talking about making comics to actually make comics
- Been writing a lot of spare-time code too (including trying to finally write a CMS that works the way I want it to since I'm sick of hacking on Movable Type but everything else out there is markedly worse)
- Playing, obsessing over, and completely picking apart the game data of Undertale which is my favorite game since Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Also I'll be cosplaying Frisk (portrayed above) at GeekGirlCon 2015, which will also be my first time ever cosplaying. The game is that good.
- 884 total comics published (including 82 sketchbook pages, not counting 19 guest arts)
