A gorgeous, slow, relaxed and delightful body of work, The Summer of Blake Sinclair tells a long-form story over a series of short moments. Created by Sarah Burgess, it’s a webcomic where the overall story doesn’t matter as much as the sense of evoking a mood, and feeling. In this case, that mood is of […]

SCHMUCK is the brain-child of pop culture man about town and award-winning photographer Seth Kushner. He sets out to tell a semi-autobiographical story in the hands of a host of talented comic artists featuring the brutal honesty of real life when looking for love. One of the dominant themes is coming from a Jewish background, […]
Sinfest is most probably a comic everyone has heard of – Tatsuya “Tats” Ishida’s daily strip has been going strong for some thirteen years now but things have recently taken a surprising feminist turn.

I think comedy is the toughest impression to pull with comics. It’s not easy to create something humorous and memorable – something that makes you laugh out loud – using the visual narrative. Josh Mecouch, the creator of Formalsweat Pants, makes it look easy.
Gunnerkrigg Court is a comic that I find myself trying not to visit for as long as possible, only so that I can then drink up a nice long chunk in one go before reluctantly slithering back into withdrawal. The plot is always veering off in spectacular new directions, with cliffhangers and revelations and I […]
