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.

2015/03/26: Upcoming schedule

As usual, my wrists are still sucking so I might need to take it easy a bit? I don't know. BUT ALSO: Emerald City ComiCon is coming up! Come find me this weekend!

(I will also be at the drink-and-draw Thursday night, on behalf of both of the local cartooning meetup groups I'm a member of.)

2015/03/02: Back in the saddle, I hope

My wrists are doing better now, although I'm going to take it easy on the art quality for a while all the same (like anyone can really tell anyway).

Anyway, welcome to chapter 2.

2015/02/16: End of Chapter 1

I'm going to take a short break to plan out what happens in chapter 2. I have a bunch of story fragments but it'll take some planning to put them together, and also my wrists could use a break.

Feel free to submit guest art in the interim!
